COVID Safe businesses

How to be COVID safe

The NSW Government has prepared COVID-19 safety plans to support businesses re-opening. Randwick Council is encouraging all local businesses to show your commitment to community safety by completing a COVID-19 safety plan and registering as a COVID Safe business.

1. Complete a COVID-19 Safety plan

COVID-19 Safety Plans help to protect your staff, customers and visitors as you get back to business.

Some businesses will need to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan under the public health orders, but you can also voluntarily complete one.

There are different plans for different industries, and they all provide advice on:

  • Hygiene and safety
  • Physical distancing
  • Recording contact details of staff and customers
  • Staff wellbeing

To find out if you need to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan:

2. Register as a COVID Safe business

As a COVID Safe business, you will be able to show customers that you are committed to keeping them safe. Customers will also be able to provide real-time feedback on your safety performance. You can register online after you have completed your COVID-19 safety plan. Once you've registered, you will receive:

  • Digital COVID Safe badge for use on Google and social channels
  • Posters on safety and hygiene
  • Reports on how your customers rate your business safety

If you have completed your COVID-19 Safety Plan, you can now register as a COVID Safe business

3. Show that you're COVID Safe

The final step is showing that you are doing your part to keep our community COVID Safe. To do this:

  • Download and display your COVID Safe posters and make your customers feel confident
  • Share your completed COVID-19 safety plan with your staff to ensure their wellbeing
  • Display your COVID Safe badge on your digital and social channels such as Facebook and Google Maps
  • Train staff to act in a COVID Safe way
  • Keep your plan up-to-date when there are changes to the rules

Customers can visit the URL in the posters to provide feedback on how your business is providing a COVID Safe environment.
