COVID-19 Information for Specific Industries: Retail Workers



The model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws require all employers to take care of the health and safety of their workers and others (e.g. customers and delivery drivers) at the workplace.


This includes:

  • providing and maintaining a work environment that is without risk to health and safety; and

  • providing adequate facilities for staff to carry out their work.


Employers must identify risks at the workplace, and where possible eliminate or minimise those risks. 


If your business has been determined an essential service by government and you are permitted to continue operating, you must ensure any risks to your workers are eliminated or minimised as much as is reasonably practicable.
