Making sure we are managing businesses to prevent the risk of infection and spread of COVID-19 virus is currently a critical focus for many businesses. The food sector is no different, yet it may have increased risks if this isn’t done adequately. Apart from the obvious risks relating to the health of staff and customers, there are also reputational risks brought about through adverse publicity.
As we progress through the cycles and changes that are being implemented following Government guidelines and restrictions within our different States and Territories in response to COVID-19, it is important to review what we are doing and how we are doing it, to manage and protect both people and business.
Riskcom has created a COVID-19 risk assessment checklist as a tool for your food business to utilise and build on to enable you to confidently manage COVID-19 risks within your business. The risk assessment checklist is to be used in conjunction with and does not replace any Government and Health Department guidelines. Those guidelines must be adhered to at all times
