Member Update- Stage 4 Restrictions & Worker Permit Scheme

Dear Member

On behalf of the Board & the Institute Secretariat, I hope this email finds you well and healthy in these challenging times.

As you already know the Victorian Government has moved to Stage 4 Covid-19 Restrictions and as a result our industry has been affected.

Importantly, we are still able to work with a number of important caveats including making sure our operations have considered & documented COVID-19 Response Plans in addition to their Risk Management Policies & Plans.

As of midnight tonight a worker permit scheme is in place and all employers & employees are required to complete and have these available for inspection by Victorian authorities.

Please note the links below for further information and assistance.
