HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY GUIDELINES FOR COVID-19
If you own or manage a hospitality venue or business, you must comply with the new Victorian Hospitality Venue Guidelines.
After strict COVID-19 restrictions, venues are now being permitted to re-open to the public. The Victorian Government have put in guidelines to protect the health and safety of customers and staff. These guidelines are explained in more detail below.
As a ‘COMPLIANCE based organisation, the team at AboveProof have extensive knowledge and experience with government compliance and hospitality-based organisations. We have undertaken the leg-work to set up an easy-to-use compliance system for hospitality business owners that ensures compliance.
All hospitality businesses no matter how big or small must comply.
Business owners are responsible for arranging and implementing this system, while managers and staff are responsible for adhering to this system.
The guidelines have been put in place by the Victorian Government in response to COVID-19 as of 26th of May 2020.
Your business needs to have compliance processes in place before re-opening to the public. If you are serving customers, you must ensure you are complying with the guidelines.
> Set up a system to record customer contact details. This can be in the shape of a paper-based or electronic form that collects at a minimum, first name and a contact number.
> Set up a system to ensure staff complete a health check at the beginning of every shift. This can be in the shape of a paper-based or electronic form that includes a time stamp and basic details.
>Ensure your systems for customers and staff minimise physical contact and germ spreading (e.g. you should not use an iPad for all customers). You must also ensure you retain customer contact details in a secure manner for at least 28 days after the customer has visited your venue.
