Increased checks on COVID-19 health management plans

ABGC has been advised that the Queensland Government has stepped up its compliance monitoring activity to ensure all farms have a COVID-19 Health Management Plan in place.

This is in response to the positive case of COVID-19 on a farm in Bundaberg earlier this year.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland and Queensland Police targeted farms last week in three regions being, Burdekin and Bowen-Gumlu, Sunshine Coast and Caboolture and Gayndah-Mundubbera. All three regions employ seasonal workers in horticulture.
