Based on the latest health advice, a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for most occupations and workforces will be introduced in a phased approach. This approach will apply mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for expanded industries in WA (which will be classified as either Group 1 or Group 2 industries and occupations), as well as introducing a requirement for all critical workers to be vaccinated to attend work in the event of a lockdown or similar restrictions.
To further assist operators and individuals impacted by the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) introduced additional alleviation measures to provide support to the aviation industry until 31 March 2022.
CASA EX92/21 - as amended by CASA EX100/21, provides alleviation from:
* flight reviews and proficiency checks
* operator proficiency checks
* proficiency in emergency procedures
* balloon instructor ratings
for pilots, aircrew, cabin crew, AOC holders, flight training organisations, and Part 137 operators.

The Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) Committee has issued updated information on the delivery of first aid training in light of latest developments with COVID-19. RTOs delivering cardiopulmonary resuscitation within the First Aid units must ensure a risk assessment is completed before delivery and comply with State and Territory Health requirements and any local restrictions. In local areas where community transmission of COVID-19 has been reported, or where an area has been declared a hot spot, RTOs are able to make “reasonable adjustment” during CPR assessment.
