Covid-19 Statement

How Life Skills Victoria Inc is responding to COVID-19
  • Life Skills Victoria Inc (LSV Inc) operates under a COVIDSafe Plan that has been developed to support the organisation to safely maintain a COVIDSafe workplace and prepare for any suspected case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the workplace. This COVIDSafe Plan will be regularly updated to reflect changes in public health advice or restrictions.

    We expect all staff and participants will comply with the COVIDSafe public health requirements at that time.  LSV Inc regularly monitors the government’s COVID-19 health alerts and will maintain up to date information for employees and participants and advise of any changes as soon as practicable.

    In order to be compliant with public health direction:

    • All businesses in both metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria must complete a COVIDSafe Plan.
    • This COVIDSafe Plan is developed in consultation with workers and any relevant Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs).
    • In addition to completing the COVIDSafe Plan, LSV Inc is still required to meet all obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.
    • LSV Inc must comply with a request to present or modify this COVIDSafe Plan, if directed to do so by an Authorised Officer or WorkSafe Inspector.
    • The permitted density requirement for services provided in small to medium community facilities under the Chief Health Officer Directions, is 1 person per 4 square metres.
    • All events must apply for approval under the Public Events Framework.
    • Information on public health directions is available at www.dhhs.vic.gov.au
