Social Distancing To Make The Workplace COVID-Secure


You must ensure that workers and other people visiting your workplace understand and comply with the measures you put in place.

Some of the measures you can put in place to maintain social distancing include:

  • using floor tape or paint to mark work areas
  • providing signage to remind people to keep a 2 m distance
  • having people working side-by-side rather than face-to-face
  • limiting movement of people:
    • rotating between jobs and equipment
    • using lifts and work vehicles
    • in high-traffic areas like corridors, turnstiles and walkways
    • allow only essential trips within buildings and between sites

These measures will keep your employees as safe as possible, while allowing as many people as possible to resume their livelihoods.

Managers should ensure employees can socially distance from each other or have implemented robust mitigation measures where distancing is not possible.
