When employees return to work businesses should implement known controls as advise by Work Safe Australia, such as good hygiene measures, physical distancing (keeping everyone at the workplace at least 1.5 metres physically apart), workplace cleaning and personal protective equipment rather than only relying on temperature checks. You should also require workers to tell you if they are feeling unwell, including if they have a fever, and require them to go home when they do.Before administering temperature checks: Seek the advice of your public health authority on the appropriate method of temperature checking, equipment, personal protective equipment and control measures required to ensure safe testing. Consult with your workers, and their health and safety representatives, and take their views into account, provide instruction to all workers on the process for temperature checks, including emphasising the importance of maintaining the other control measures. Provide information, training, instruction and supervision, as well appropriate personal protective equipment for workers conducting temperature checks, have strategies/procedures in place for stand down arrangements for employees who register high temperatures.
