COVID-19: What if employees visit client sites?

18 May 2020

Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors speaks about common issues employers are facing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Q If my employees go to client sites what precautions should I take?

A COVID-19 is no different to any other ‘client site’ situation. You have a duty of care to ensure that your employees are safe on your client’s site. In the context of COVID-19 this should involve you making enquiries about the protocols adopted by the client.

This should include understanding what the client is doing:

  • With employees who fit the 14-day government isolation period (are they following this?)
  • With employees who are sick (are they being sent home and isolated?)
  • Have they had anyone in the workplace diagnosed with COVID-19 and if so, have they undertaken effective cleaning of the work area?
  • In relation to sanitisation, hygiene and personal protective equipment (if any)
