COVID Marshal – be COVIDSafe this season!

Colmed Group’s onsite COVID Marshal service

A Colmed COVID Marshal plays an important role in making sure workplaces and events are COVIDSafe at all times, protecting workers, punters and members of the community.

COVID Marshals will monitor a site’s compliance with their COVIDSafe Plan and any additional industry- specific obligations that may be in place, thereby playing a vital role in ensuring everyone is following COVIDSafe principles in order to keep the site safe.
