Burnet is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for all employees, their families, and the communities we work with. Burnet is required to do all that is reasonably practicable to ensure the health and safety of workers and others at the workplace. This duty extends to the COVID-19 pandemic, where employers must eliminate, or if that is not possible, minimise, so far as is reasonably practicable, the risk of exposure to infection from COVID-19 in the workplace both now and into the future. Vaccination is a vital risk management strategy tool to reduce the presence and severity of COVID-19 cases in the workplace, therefore all Burnet employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless medically exempted.
