The purpose of an Infectious Disease Control Policy is to proactive steps to protect the workplace in the event of an infectious disease outbreak.
It is the goal during any such time period to strive to operate effectively and that all employees are safe within the workplace.
A Infectious Disease Control Policy should aim to provide authoritative information about the nature and spread of infectious diseases, including symptoms and signs to watch for, as well as required steps to be taken in the event of an illness or outbreak. It should commit to ensuring a workplace that is safe and free of risk for our employees, suppliers, and contractors in line with our OHS obligations as employers in Australia.
