COVID-19 Coronavirus Protocol

Risk Management

Laboratory Systems Group will identify if there is a risk to the health of all employees by determining exposure to COVID-19 at their workplace, we will do this by:

  • Monitoring expert advice by Australian Government bodies.
  • Review infection control policies, procedures and practices.
  • Educate all employees on new information with regular Email updates and staff meetings.
  • Restrict all non-essential travel and meetings

Control Measures

Laboratory Systems Group will eliminate or minimise risks. The type of control measures required depends on the level of risk:-

  • Provide products to allow employees to maintain good hygiene practices.
  • Advising any employees to self-isolate at home for 14 days if:-
    • In the last 14 days if they have been in any foreign countries listed by the Department of Health & Human Services.
    • They have been in contact with confirmed cases of COVID-19
    • If the employee is experiencing flu-like symptoms regardless if they have travelled overseas or had close contact with a confirmed case, the employee must NOT attend work and seek medical advice.

If an employee thinks they may be at risk of infection of carrying COVID-19

  • The employee must raise this with their Manager immediately.
  • Laboratory Systems Group will ask the employee to seek medical clearance.
  • If the employee/s are not fit for work due to contracting the COVID-19 they should remain isolated for 14 days.


Laboratory Systems Group employees have increased the level of personal hygiene in our office including:

  • On arrival and departure of the office using alcohol based hand sanitiser.
  • Always washing hands with soap and water before eating  and  after visiting the bathroom.
  • Covering their nose and mouth when coughing sneezing and disposing of tissues immediately.
  • Avoiding close contact with anyone whom has cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • Avoid all physical interaction, including shaking hands, hugging or kissing.
  • Social distancing—at least 1.5 metres away from others if possible and staggering break times.
