COVID SAFE business certification
Yesterday, the NSW Government announced the creation of an online tool where businesses, including registered clubs, can register that they are COVID SAFE.
Businesses who register as COVID SAFE will be entitled to publicise their COVID SAFE certification at their premises or online.
By publicising their certification, clubs will have the opportunity to signal to members and other customers that the club has taken steps to make the venue safe.
Details of the online registration process can be found here.
In order to register as a COVID SAFE business, clubs must first declare that they have completed a COVID-19 Safety Plan, and that a copy of the Plan is kept at the club’s premises.
Member clubs who admit more than 10 patrons at any one time are already required to develop and comply with a COVID-19 Safety Plan.
See Circular 20-080 for further details on developing a COVID-19 Safety Plan.
Following completion of the registration process, clubs will be emailed a COVID SAFE badge to use on digital channels, and images which can be printed as COVID SAFE posters or stickers.
Clubs which register as a COVID SAFE business may also have their certification appear on Google Maps and in Google searches.
Course on COVID SAFE food service
Member clubs are advised of a free, online course on COVID-19 safety standards for food service. The NSW Food Authority partnered with NSW Health to develop the course.
The course is intended to help food businesses understand the changes in food preparation and service due to COVID-19.
The course will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and it includes a 20 question multiple choice quiz.
