Manuals and standards
If you are a contractor or developer, this section will provide you with the latest Horizon Power manuals and standards.
The mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for WA workforces was introduced by the WA Government last year to prepare the community for expected community transmission of COVID-19.
Since then, the WA Government published the Critical Infrastructure Worker (Restrictions on Access) Directions on 23 December. This outlines the mandated vaccination requirements in respect of persons providing services or performing activities at electricity infrastructure sites.
Confirmation of COVID-19 vaccination requirements
All suppliers, contractors, subcontractors and personnel attending Horizon Power premises or work locations must be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the following dates:
Please refer to the Subsequent Booster Vaccination (Restrictions on Access) Directions (No. 2) in respect to third dose boosters.
There is a limited exception from the vaccination requirement for persons who have a medical exemption recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register and displayed on their individual immunisation history statement.
Sign in requirements
To comply with the Directions - all suppliers, contractors, subcontractors and their personnel attending any Horizon Power site will need to follow the following sign-in process:
Suppliers and contractors must ensure that their personnel satisfy the vaccination requirements - to comply with Horizon Power's sign in process.
Additional information to be requested in the coming weeks
We'll be seeking updated supplier data for various matters including insurance certificates and compliance with COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Further information will be provided to you separately soon.
There is no current obligation on suppliers to send us vaccination evidence for their employees or contractors, unless they will be visiting remote Aboriginal communities. Please don’t submit vaccination certificates unless the latter circumstance applies.
Please contact us immediately if there are any concerns regarding your ability to continue to perform services in light of the requirements set out above.
