WORKPLACE ADVICE – COVID-19

At UDIA WA we have implemented a number of measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 while still maintaining a business as usual approach to our members services and advocacy efforts.

See below for some general resources to assist you and your business now and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

GENERAL RESOURCES FOR YOUR ORGANISATION

Pandemic Management Toolkit

UDIA WA is proud to announce the release of our COVID-19 Pandemic Management Toolkit, a resource specifically developed by UDIA for the Development, Building & Construction Industry.

The toolkit provides a range of useful information to assist in the creation and management of a pandemic management action plan that will allow your business to navigate the current and importantly, any future pandemic or relevant crisis situation.

During a pandemic it can be difficult to cut through the ‘noise’ and pinpoint where the most relevant information can be sourced for our industry in relation to support measures, latest restrictions, current employer and employee guidelines, communications and other relevant advice. That is why the toolkit has been specifically developed to assist the development industry with the most current and relevant information available.

We encourage you to distribute this document to your teams and colleagues, as it provides several useful links, tips and summaries of information that will help us all adapt to these challenging times.
