Employers must appoint at least one Lead Worker representative charged with ensuring that COVID-19 measures are strictly adhered to in the place of work. The person(s) undertaking the role must receive the necessary training and have a structured framework to follow within the organisation to be effective in preventing the spread of the virus. The Lead Worker role is to work collaboratively with the employer to assist in the implementation of measures and monitor adherence to the measures to prevent the spread of COVID -19.

The Lead Worker representative will, together with employer’s COVID-19 response management team, support the implementation of the measures identified in the mandatory Covid-19 Response Plan.
