1 in 3 Aussies workers have not been shared a COVID-Safe plan by their organisation.
As organisations in most States and Territories begin to welcome employees back to the workplace, it is crucial they have a COVID-19 risk management plan in place to minimise the spread of infection. However, our latest research has revealed a third (33 per cent) of employees have not been shared such a policy by their organisation.
Worryingly, the results found that small businesses are less likely to have a policy to minimise the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. More than half (53 per cent) of employees in micro-businesses (up to 15 employees) and 33 per cent in small businesses (15-50 employees) have not received such a policy. This compares with just 24 per cent of those in organisations with more than 50 employees who have not received a policy.
