What is a COVID Marshal?

COVID Marshals are required on all construction sites, including small-scale construction sites. They are appointed by the site's employer and do not have to be a site manager. COVID Marshals are responsible for monitoring a worksite’s compliance with its COVIDSafe Plan and additional industry-specific obligations. They also support workers to follow COVIDSafe principles and look for ways to continually improve a business’s COVIDSafe Plan.
