NSW businesses now have access to a new tool enabling them to get back to work safely by checking, testing and promoting their COVID Safe credentials.

The NSW state government has launched an online tool, encouraging businesses to complete a COVID-19 safety plan and register as a COVID Safe business to minimise the coronavirus community transmission.

The new tool groups industry-specific information under one roof, including downloadable badges for businesses with COVID Safe plans to display in their premises so customers know they have the tick of approval.


“With the recent easing of restrictions, thousands of businesses are reopening their doors and welcoming back customers,” said Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

“Customers can also use the tool to provide feedback in real time. Feedback is sent to the business and, if necessary, to the regulator for action.”


According to the state government, so far over 8,000 businesses have downloaded a COVID Safety Plan template, which is stage one of the process.

“Businesses need to complete three easy steps: visit nsw.gov.au, go through industry-specific guidance, and register and download materials,” Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said.   

Businesses will be told what they need to do to be COVID Safe, Mr Dominello added.

“This may include physical distancing, cleaning and record-keeping requirements. Once businesses have completed the above steps and finalised their COVID Safe plan, they will be able to complete an online self-declaration.”



Businesses will also be provided with advice on how to integrate their COVID Safe status with Google Maps, giving customers a bird’s-eye view of COVID Safe businesses when searching online.

The COVID Safe check is available here.
