New COVID-19 WHS industry guidance available
The Safe Work Australia website has been updated to provide a central hub of work health and safety (WHS) guidance and tools to help Australian workplaces manage the health and safety risks posed by COVID-19.
The website gives users easy access to guidance that is directly relevant to their specific industry. It includes guidance about physical distancing, personal protective equipment, cleaning, workers’ compensation, how to conduct risk assessments and design emergency plans, as well as providing case studies to help explain how to manage the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace.
You can also use the search bar to find specific COVID-19 WHS content or browse through the information for your industry.
New information and guidance continue to be developed and the website will be updated with new information as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
BullyZero Introduces new Workplace and Schools Program
Aimed at employers of all sizes and taking current COVI-19 restrictions, it will be delivered virtually; the program will equip you to guard the wellbeing, productivity and performance of your people throughout 2020.
It focuses on maximising positive connectivity, reducing negative strains and behaviours, and safeguarding the psychological and emotional safety of your people.
In addition, Bully Zero have also launched single webinars for employees and managers/leaders.
In response to the spread of COVID – 19, students and teachers have had to adapt to unprecedented changes in the delivery of education programs and learning.
To ensure Bully Zero can continue to educate our community on the dangers of bullying and cyberbullying, they are now offering all our workshops as live online webinars.
As students are spending more time in front of online devices for learning and socialising, new evidence suggests cyberbullying has significantly increased during this pandemic period. As such, it is essential that we continue to educate and inform our students and parents on the dangers associated with bullying, and assist with the development of personal strategies which help protect young people online.
