Being COVID-safe in ECEC


The resources below can help you to determine what safety measures to implement in your service.

The COVID-19 Safe Workplaces Framework supports businesses and workplaces in Tasmania to continue to operate, or reopen, while protecting Tasmania’s health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, and is made up of three key parts:

  • Minimum Standards to manage the ongoing risk of COVID-19 in workplaces.
  • COVID Safe Workplace Guidelines to provide more detail on how sectors and workplaces can meet the Minimum Standards.
  • COVID-19 Safety Plans to outline how each workplace complies with the Minimum Standards.

There are a number of workplace tools, resources and templates available to help workplaces and businesses to develop and review their COVID-19 Safety Plans.

The Government has worked with stakeholders to develop industry specific guidelines to provide examples of the sorts of measures that will suit businesses in each sector and to support employers in complying with minimum standards requirements determined by Public Health and the requirements of Work Health and the Safety Act.  For the education and care and child care sector, please see the: COVID Safe Workplace Guidelines for Childcare Services Industry.
