SMALL BUSINESSES emerging from hibernation and ready to make the most of easing COVID restrictions can find the information they need on ASBFEO’s My Business Health web portal.
The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman Kate Carnell said the My Business Health web portal now features important information for small business owners ready to re-open or ramp up their operations.
“There’s never been a tougher time to be in business and it is understandable if some small business owners are feeling overwhelmed right now,” Ms Carnell said.
“The pandemic has changed so much in such a short amount of time, small business owners may be finding it difficult to stay on top of their obligations.
“My Business Health is a one-stop-shop for state-by-state information about restrictions and COVID-Safe Plans.
“It includes links to relevant posters and signage for your workplace along with safe workplace checklists and grants available to re-opening small businesses.
“There’s also information on free apps available such as GuestTrack, for those small businesses that need to collect and store customer and visitor contact details in the event of a localised COVID outbreak.
“My Business Health also links through to leading mental health organisations’ resources, such as Beyond Blue’s dedicated coronavirus mental health support service and Ahead for Business," Ms Carnell said.
“As small business owners work around the clock to get back on their feet, they may not realise the toll it’s taking on their mental health.
“Over the coming weeks, it’s important to take time to be kind to yourself – your business depends on you being healthy. Help is available if you need it. Visiting My Business Health is a good place to start.”
