From Friday 14 October 2022, it is no longer mandatory to isolate if you test positive to COVID-19.
The removal of mandatory isolation does not impact on the duties of an employer to do all that is reasonably practicable to minimise the risks of COVID-19 at the workplace, including asking workers to stay at home when unwell.
Information on these pages is currently being reviewed and will be updated shortly.
This page includes resources for workplaces in the Road Freight industry on work health and safety, workers’ compensation and COVID-19.
We also have information for delivery drivers.
Road freight services include the transportation of freight by road, the renting of trucks with drivers for road freight transport, and road vehicle towing services.
Typically, road freight is used to transport bulk goods using large vehicles, and includes activities such as:
- furniture removal
- log haulage
- road freight transport
- road vehicle towing, and
- truck hire services (with a driver).
Workplaces may include drivers’ vehicles and the public roads they operate on, service stations, and pick-up and delivery locations such as freight terminals or warehouses.
