Attestations

In line with the Government’s latest initiatives towards making workplaces safer for Victorian healthcare workers, Monash Health employees will be required to complete a daily Attestation that they are well before commencing a workday on-site.

Attestations

An Attestation is simply showing or providing evidence that something is true, and will help us identify that you are:

  • well
  • free of any COVID-19 symptoms
  • not a known close-contact of a positive COVID-19 case (except with appropriate PPE at work).

The Attestation form takes less than a minute, can be completed before arriving at work and can be submitted by:

Smartphone device

Completing the online form on your smartphone or device via attestation.monashhealth.org or QR Code and showing your green tick and date stamp upon entry.

Site-entrance devices

Complete and show your green tick and date stamp on the
provided devices (Surface Go laptops) at some site-entrances.

Paper-based form

Paper-based forms will also be available at site entry points.

Please note: You are required to show your green tick and the current date stamp to our friendly screening team as you enter your workplace.

A helpful guide to using the online employee Attestation has been created to ensure you can access the form on your devices and save a shortcut to the form on your smartphone to make the process even faster.

Please be reminded that we will all need to play our part in ending transmission of COVID-19, and if you feel unwell or display any COVID-19 symptoms, do not attend work, get tested, and isolate until you return a negative result.

We want to reassure all employees that you will not be disadvantaged if you need to isolate due to a positive result or close contact. There is specific financial, accommodation, and leave assistance for healthcare workers affected by COVID-19.

Employees are advised to contact the Employee Hotline on 9594 5815 if they become unwell while at work or have any questions.

What if I answer “Yes” to any of the screening questions?

If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, you will receive a red cross on the online tool and it is important you not work on-site and notify your manager.

Employees with symptoms related to a chronic disorder, that potentially could also be due to COVID-19, may continue to work at a Monash Health campus, provided there is no change in their baseline symptoms. If these employees develop a change in symptoms or worsening symptoms they should get tested and not come to work until they return a negative result.​

What if I’m running late?

If you are running late, you still need to complete the Attestation before you can commence work. To speed the process up, we suggest completing the Attestation before leaving for work or saving the link to the form on your smartphone. A helpful guide to using the employee Attestation tool has been created for you.

Who should employees talk to if they have concerns?

The attestation process is intended to help keep you, your colleagues and our patients safe. If you have concerns about the Attestation process, you should talk to your manager in the first instance.

You can also contact the Employee Hotline on 9594 5815 if you have any questions or concerns.

Where is the data stored?

Data from the online form is stored on Monash Health servers in line with our data security policy and protocols.

Hardcopy forms will be kept for a period of 6 weeks.
