COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Member Support - Stage 1
It is important that each PCBU (ie depo/ yard section of your workplace) has completed a thorough risk assessment regarding the risk of contracting COVID-19. A failure to do this would likely be a breach of their workplace health and safety requirements.
It is critical that you perform the following step ASAP, if you have concerns. Please send your Line Manager an email that is similar to the following:
"Hi [your line manager's name],
I understand that it has been made mandatory at [insert organisation name] for staff to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccine status.
I would like to clarify that I am ready, willing, and able to work in my role and will remain so into the future.
Could you please provide me with a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination risk assessment for my [ward or usual area of work]?
Considering the impending deadline, I would appreciate receiving the risk assessment as soon as possible. I am trying to comply with the employer's hurried deadline and would like to meaningfully engage with this issue.
Please note, it is critical that you do not stray too far from the pre-drafted email above.
If you do not receive a response from your manager in 1 day, please proceed to the next step.
If you believe the risk assessment received needs analysis, can you please forward this to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavor to advise you on its validity ASAP.

I look forward to working collaboratively with you and with my representative, to examine the risk assessment and its supporting data once provided.
