Review the guidelines
While considering a return to campus, guidelines are available to provide information for your plan. The Guidelines have been developed to describe the essential requirements, standards and shared responsibilities for conducting teaching, research and administration at ANU, in response to COVID-19. The Guidelines are applicable to all ANU staff and students.
Begin to develop a plan
You will need to develop a plan for a safe, clear and staged approach to re-starting your team’s activities. The plan should include details and arrangements for staff that will be returning to campus and for those staff that will continue working from home.
Please follow the relevant guidelines to ensure you consider important components of your planning including compliance with protocols, dependencies, communications, training and cleaning requirements.
If you need assistance when developing your plan, please contact Matt Talbot at ReturntoCampusTaskforce@anu.edu.au.
Complete a risk assessment
Review and Complete Protocols
The Protocol document is a summary of the key elements noted with the Guidelines. Your plan needs to be accompanied by an action checklist, detailing all actions that need to be undertaken to ensure a safe and compliant return.
Please follow the relevant template below.
You must submit your return to campus plan, accompanied by your risk assessment and action checklist, to your Dean, Director or Portfolio Head for approval. In some cases the plans will need to be approved by managers and supervisors prior to being submitted to the Dean, Director or Portfolio Head, please confirm these requirements with your College, Service Division or Portfolio.
Submit plan to Return to Campus Task Force
Once your plan has been approved by your Dean, Director or Portfolio Head, you need to submit it to the Return to Campus Task Force via email: email@example.com.
Monitor and review practices regularly
Part of the planning process is to identify what you are going to do to regularly check that your plan is working and that your return is safe, and compliant with Guidelines. By regularly monitoring your plan against staff actions and other factors, you can identify what is working, and what changes need to be made.
This process should occur regularly and Guidelines should be checked regularly as they will be updated based on new information and requirements, as set out by the Government.
