Safe Work Australia has developed new guidance and resources to help workplaces to stay safe and manage the risks from COVID-19.
A small business planning tool is now available to help businesses operate safely and manage work health and safety (WHS) risks from COVID-19. The tool outlines key steps and considerations for small business when operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Go to the COVID-19 Small business planning tool.

Recently published industry guidance includes :
- Beauty salons and day spas
- Cultural institutions
- Gyms and fitness centres

A range of practical tools and resources including checklists, posters and infographics are also available in the COVID-19 business resource kit.
