Covid - 19 Risk Management Plan - Organisation

The Risk Management Plan is available for Organisations who can develop Risk Management Plans on behalf of their employees. In assessing your application to qualify for entry, APY Permits will assess the reasons for entry, the work involved, the length of stay and what organisational measures are in place to reduce the risk of introducing COVID-19 into the community. APY will need to agree, the way the activity is being engaged in will minimise the exposure to people in the designated area.

This COVID-19 Risk Management Plan is a guide only. The intent is to assist you in developing a plan to manage risks in a way that APY will endorse. The aim of an APY COVID-19 Risk Management Plan is to identify points of contact (risks) between your employees and the people of the APY Lands, to put in place appropriate controls to minimise such exposure.

APY ask that Organisations assess your current work practices and consider how you can adapt them to:

Mitigate risks and put into place controls

Educate your employees in safe behaviour/s that will reduce as much as possible the chance of being infected with COVID-19 and infecting others (refer SA Health guidelines)

You will need to talk to your employees about the COVID-19 Risk Management Plan and how it will affect them.
