Many healthcare worker infections in Victoria will be due to workplace #occupationalexposure to #SARSCoV2

This has been acknowledged by Premier, Health Minister & Chief Health Officer
@VictorianCHO @JennyMikakos @DanielAndrewsMP @AndrewWilsonCMO
Workplace exposure to a preventable biohazard which leads to sickness should be thought of as a significant workplace “injury”

The worker went to work well and came home sick (incubating the virus)

1 healthcare worker infected due to occupational exposure is 1 too many

1 healthcare worker who is left with a chronic illness 😞 due to occupational exposure is 1 too many

1 healthcare worker who dies 😢 due to occupational exposure is 1 too many

Aim should be ZERO #HCW

Couple of important messages for #nurses #doctors other #HCW #COVID19 #covid19vic #PPE #occupationalexposure #safeworkplaces #SARSCoV2 #biohazard

1. Always remember basics of infection control

2. Keep a daily diary of your experiences (if you haven’t already)

The Basics

- keep hair short and tied back
- be clean shaven
- don’t wear any jewellery
- wear nothing below your elbows
- keep fingernails very short
- meticulous hand washing/cleaning

- stay home if you are unwell(for any reason not just COVID19 symptoms)
- maintain physical distance at work
- talk less, be a bit quieter than usual
- maintain your energy - get enough sleep, food, rest, replenishing activity if you can
- try to smile a bit more (tough ask)
