COVID-19 Awareness Training 

To help mitigate the risk of incidents and to keep our industry, our customers and the community safe, the COVID-19 Awareness Training for Commercial Vehicle Operators course was developed by local organisation, Driver Risk Management.  Drivers and staff who successfully complete the online course, will be issued with a certificate and a sign to display within their vehicles. The course was developed for FLCWA in collaboration with Western Roads Federation to help ensure we all remain safe, as WA and the rest of Australia begins to return to the new normal.  For further information see here.

Phase 4 of the COVID-19 roadmap 

With restrictions on some activities eased and people interacting with others more regularly during Phase 4 of the COVID-19 roadmap, we’d like to remind everyone to continue to be vigilant.

  • Ensure the highest of hygiene standards at all times
  • If you have access to PPE equipment, ensure your staff are using it
  • Maintain social distancing where possible.

Based on the latest health advice, the State Government has pushed back Phase 5 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap, to the new tentative date of Saturday, 1 August.  A final decision on whether Phase 5 can proceed on this date will be decided in about 2 weeks’ time.  Keep up to date here.

Border Restrictions

Our border with the east coast was further tightened from midnight Friday 10 July.  No one will be allowed into Western Australia if they have been in Victoria in the previous 14 days, unless they meet new exemption requirements or would normally reside in Western Australia.  Returning WA residents will continue to be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.  For further information and clarification see wa.gov.au.

WA’s Hard Border Closure still remains in place as well as restrictions on entry to remote Aboriginal communities.  These are set out in the WA Government’s Remote Aboriginal Communities Directions.
