Managing the risk of COVID-19 exposure in agriculture

31 July 2020

The Authority has worked with WorkSafe Victoria on resources for managing COVID-19 exposure risks in the agriculture industry and while travelling in vehicles.

Employers are encouraged to use the industry-specific resources from WorkSafe Victoria and DHHS to help prevent and manage the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Resources are available for many industries including meat and poultry, construction, aged care, healthcare and social assistance, and for workers at home and in offices.

Safe Work Australia has also published industry-specific advice on how to minimise the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in workplaces.
