Face coverings in workplaces

31 July 2020

As you are aware, people living in metropolitan Melbourne or Mitchell Shire must wear a face covering when leaving their home, unless they have a lawful reason for not doing so. From 11:59 pm on Sunday 2 August this applies to all Victorians - including across regional Victoria. Employers must take reasonable steps to ensure that workers wear a face covering at all times when working in their business.

Use the resources from WorkSafe Victoria and DHHS to help prevent and manage the risk of exposure to COVID-19, and to understand your legal obligations. 

Even with face masks we must continue to practice good hygiene, wash our hands thoroughly and keep 1.5 metres distance between each other.
