The Victorian Government has announced that all workplaces, including construction sites, must use the Service Victoria App and QR code for contact tracing.
This means all workers and visitors will be required to follow two steps when they enter your site:
- Scan the Covid-19 QR code with the Service Victoria App – To fulfil contact tracing requirements
- Scan the HazardCo QR code with the HazardCo App – To track who is on-site from a health and safety perspective and make sure they have read your site-specific safety plan. If you’re a Project Plus customer, subbies must scan in to access additional tools such as guided SWMS and toolbox talks.
You can register to use the Service Victoria App here.
