This article about contract tracing & permitted works has been supplied by QIA Group.
In Victoria, it is now a requirement to record the name, phone number, date and time of a contractor who performs work on-site as well as anyone who uses any common property facilities.
Common areas and shared facilities where people congregate for 15 minutes or more, where there is close proximity of people, or where physical transmission can occur from touching or using the same equipment pose the highest risk of transmission and should be tracked, this includes:
- Meeting rooms
- Swimming pools, saunas and spas
- Rooftop gardens
- Indoor recreation rooms (for example, games rooms)
- Outdoor or indoor playgrounds
Owners Corporations that have employees need a COVID Safe plan and Permitted Worker Permit while Owners Corporations that are engaging the services of contractors need to ensure that those contractors have a COVID Safe plan and Permitted Worker Permit in place
COVID-Connect is a contact tracing solution both for Strata Communities and also for Strata Managers, and can also prepare COVID Safe plans.
