I am STRONGLY opposed to the Department of Labor and Industry’s Temporary COVID-19 Regulations becoming permanent.
Businesses, especially small businesses, are already struggling to survive during the current pandemic and the current challenging economic climate. These regulations only increase the burden on businesses without providing studied, documented and proven safety protections. The business community had no real input when they were originally drafted and developed and when they were put in place. The regulations were developed too quickly and have not been in place long enough to study/determine the effectiveness of the requirements. Now is not the time to make them permanent.
