Do you have a vaccination policy ready?
Are we moving toward mandatory vaccination?
More and more states in Australia are moving towards mandatory vaccination. Particularly those industries and workforces deemed critical to the ongoing delivery of business and function of the community.
The goalposts shift quickly, and it may only be a matter of time before vaccination will become a crucial part of all businesses health and safety policy.
If workers in your company are required to be vaccinated, it's essential to have an official vaccination policy in place. That way, everyone knows the rules and requirements around vaccinations at their workplace.
It's equally important for businesses to make sure their policies reflect current guidelines on vaccinations to avoid potential legal issues if someone gets sick or dies due to a lack of protection.
