We have been monitoring the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 situation closely and as always, our priority is the health of our members, their staff and clients, the shearing industry in WA and on maintaining continuity of business for agriculture.
As pressure on Australia’s health system increases, and social distancing is recommended by the World Health Organization and Australian Government, we have put together this information pack for our members as employers and businesses.
Obviously this situation is new for all of us and is rapidly changing. WASIA is committed to bringing you updates and appropriate information as the situation develops.
Employers are required to provide and maintain, as far as is practicable, a working environment in which their workers are not exposed to health risks. This includes situations where employees and contractors may be at risk of contracting viruses such as the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We’ve curated additional COVID-19 resources from a range of reputable sources, keep these handy and check for changes as this is a fast moving situation.
