Business Name: Megan Anne Photography
ABN: 74 603 485 527
Plan Completed By: Megan Watson
Date Reviewed: 24th October 2020
This plan applies to outdoor photography for commercial photographers undertaking paid services only. Services must operate solely outdoors with up to nine people from one (1) household where physical distancing can be maintained at all times.
The photographer providing the service must be registered business with an ABN.
1. Ensure physical distancing
Both the client and the photographer must remain a minimum of 1.5m from each other at all times.
Only members of the same household (max 9) can be photographed together.
To minimise the build up of people, photography locations will be selected based on them being a safe distance away from other members of the public.
All transactional activity will be undertaken online where practical (invoicing/contract signing etc)
2. Wear a face mask
A face mask must be worn by the photographer at all times throughout the photography session.
Unless a lawful exemption applies, all people over the age of 12 will wear a face mask and only remove the mask for the duration of the photograph. This is in accordance with the Stay at Home Directives (Restricted Areas) Subclause 7(s)
Cloth masks will be washed each day after use and disposable masks will be discarded. However, if during the day the mask is visibly dirty or wet, the mask will be replaced immediately.
3. Practice good hygiene
Vigilant hand and cough hygiene will be maintained at all times by both the client and the photographer.
Camera equipment will be thoroughly cleaned between sessions.
Props or blankets will also be thoroughly cleaned between sessions.
4. Keep records and act quickly if anybody becomes unwell
Contact details of all persons being photographed will be collected prior to the session. The importance of not attending/rescheduling if unwell will be reinforced and is applicable to both the client and the photographer.
In the event that the photographer comes into contact with a person with Covid-19, WorkSafe Victoria will be notified immediately on 13 23 60 and all contact details will be provided.
Any exposure to a person with Covid-19 will result in the closure of this business until it is declared safe to re-open by the relevant authorities.
In the event that the client comes into contact with a person with Covid-19, they shall notify the photographer immediately and will not schedule a photography session until they have received a negative test result.
5. Avoid interactions in enclosed spaces
Indoor photography is not a permitted activity under the current restrictions.
6. Create Workforce Bubbles
