Authorised NSW Health Officers are currently visiting businesses to assess their compliance with the NSW Public Health Order and COVID-Safe regulations. Businesses not complying will risk heavy on-the-spot fines.
For your information, gyms and hospitality venues such as pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes need a COVID-19 Safe Hygiene Marshal as part of their safety plan.
The marshal is responsible for ensuring all aspects of the COVID-19 Safety Plan are being maintained.
The marshal can be an existing member of staff but they must have a thorough knowledge of the COVID-19 Safety Plan for your business and all of its requirements regarding:
- wellbeing of staff and customers
- physical distancing
- hygiene and cleaning
- record keeping.
While it is not necessary for the Safe Hygiene Marshal to personally collect customer or visitor details at check in, the marshal is responsible for the accuracy of record keeping.
The marshal should be able to move easily and frequently around the premises to wherever customers are present to monitor safety plan actions.
