What’s in the policy?

Given the recent public health orders issued by the NSW Government, we have developed an NSW staff face mask policy for your staff to follow when attending the workplace.

With changing restrictions during the pandemic, it may become law at any given outbreak to wear masks in the workplace. You should refer to government health advice and restrictions if this applies to you. 

This policy will cover

  • The industries where staff must wear a face mask
  • The NSW locations where staff must wear a face mask
  • What is considered a suitable face mask?
  • How to effectively remove and dispose of your face mask
  •  Lawful reasons for not wearing a face mask
