Dear Road Freight NSW member

Ai Group in conjunction with Road Freight NSW has released 3 further Member Advices to support your business during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please follow the links below to access this information.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic raises a number of important work health and safety (WHS) and workplace relations issues. These include:

The importance of ensuring the health and safety of employees and others in the workplace;

Work health and safety issues to consider if employees are working from home;

The entitlements of employees when absent from work as a result of COVID-19.

It essential for Members to keep up to date with health advice from the Federal and State Governments during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Governments’ advice is being regularly updated and Members should review it often.

Also, the Australian Government and State Government have distributed a lot of materials to assist businesses to educate their employees about COVID-19 and the steps that everyone should take to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Australian Government has imposed travel restrictions on travellers arriving from overseas. From 16 March, all people travelling or returning to Australia will be required to self-isolate for 14 days, including Australian citizens.

The Government’s travel advice is being regularly updated. Members should review the Government’s latest advice often to enable relevant company policies and practices about travel to be kept up to date.
