We have also provided a series of FAQs for our members.

And further information is also available from the Government at

Electronic record keeping

The LIV sought clarity from the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions to confirm whether an office is required to utilise electronic record keeping in order to maintain the density quotient of one person per two square metres.

The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions confirmed with the LIV on 19 March 2021 that as per the Industry Restart Guidelines (PDF), whilst offices are ‘strongly recommended’ to utilise electronic record keeping, they are not mandated to do so in order to maintain the density quotient of one person per two square metres.

The Chief Health Officer’s Workplace Directions (No 22) (PDF) at clause 6 provides further information regarding an employer’s obligations to keep records of all employees and visitors attending the work premises for longer than 15 minutes.

LIV resources

We are continuing to offer our conferences and events on line, and have had good feedback from members on the digital formats.
