This week APPEA and Safer Together have released a COVID-19 Wellbeing Framework developed by the Australian Oil and Gas Industry in recognition of the changes and challenges for the industry workforce and their families during the COVID-19 emergency.

The framework is intended to reinforce and operate concurrently with industry operator worker health and wellbeing arrangements as applied to various working environments. It provides guidance for 3 specific audiences:

  • Everyone
  • Peer Supporters / Wellbeing Champions onsite
  • Supervisors / Managers / Executives

To help simplify, standardise and share, the Safer Together COVID-19 microsite now has a dedicated COVID-19 Wellbeing Framework content area which is mapped to the Framework and contains resources to assist oil and gas companies to meet the intent of the guidance. This content will be monitored and updated to ensure that relevant information is included as it becomes available.

Users are encouraged to visit the site to find existing links and resources and also to upload and share any other relevant materials that may benefit the wider industry. We can all play our part in helping each other.
