Luis said the transmission of COVID-19 was one of the biggest risks workplaces faced and employers were obligated to address the risk.
“What’s most important is that employers can identify proactive risk mitigation measures in place in their business. Vaccinations aren’t the sole answer, but they are an important tool to facilitate a strong risk minimisation framework,” he said.
“But it’s not just about vaccines. Masks, testing, contact tracing and vaccination are all issues employers can address and should be exploring to satisfy their WHS obligations. There’s obviously a broader community impact to consider too. Businesses need to be part of the solution to get the economy back on track so business can prosper.”
