Pandemic Risk Management Services

Pandemic Risk Management Services

COVID-19 represents an unprecedented challenge for businesses and the national economy, complicated by the need to exercise a flexible approach to managing through changing levels of risk and government control measures.

Businesses have a duty under legislation to control hazards and risks in the workplace, as far as is reasonably practicable.

This is to ensure that employees and other members of the public are not exposed to any health and safety risks that would be within the influence of the businesses’ operation.

Most organisations will, by now, have assessed their workplace risks and existing worker health and safety controls to deal with the specific challenges associated with the Covid19 pandemic, ie social-distancing in busy work spaces, the right type and stock of PPE, and so on, while trying as far as possible to ensure business continuity.

Power Safety’s Review Process

Power Safety has developed a comprehensive review process that assesses the effectiveness and comprehensiveness of those control measures against a framework built from a wide-ranging review of national and global practices designed to control corporate pandemic risks.
  • Assessment of Covid19 risk management strategy
  • Tools to assess Covid19 site compliance
  • Advisory on embedding pandemic risk controls into risk management framework
  • Stress-testing Covid19 risk management program

Employer Obligations

Employers are required to maintain up-to-date knowledge of work health and safety matters as they apply to the business they are operating, and the community context within which they operate. To meet due-diligence obligations, employers and business owners must stay up to date with the latest COVID-19 information and advice, from government and technical bodies such as:

  • Australian Government Coronavirus COVID-19 information page
  • Department of Health
  • Advice from state or territory government agencies, including health departments and WHS regulators

As such, organisations need to adopt proactive risk management strategies to minimise the potential for contracting COVID-19 in the workplace.
