BNTAC Response

The BNTAC Team are preparing for compliance with WA’s vaccine mandates, which take effect from 1 February 2022. This includes gathering advice to keep Members as safe as possible while still holding meetings that are essential to continue business.

  • Our Member Services team has continued to distribute support programs to our community
  • A BNTAC COVID-19 Policy has been developed for the health and safety of our staff and Members.

Understanding the vaccination mandates to attend meetings, work, or support services.

To comply with State Government requirements regarding COVID-19 vaccinations, BNTAC has developed a quick guide.

BNTAC workplace means - Perth or Tom Price offices or other locations from time to time, including offsite meeting venues where the meeting is hosted by BNTAC.

  • There are no vaccine requirements for attending meetings remotely.

            -  BNTAC undertakes to offer electronic remote attendance to meetings where practical.

  • The vaccination requirements below apply to you unless you provide proof of a valid exemption, issued by recognised authorities or your GP in some cases:

           BNTAC recognises a COVID vaccination exemption certificate can only be issued in the case of serious adverse reaction or a severe medical condition. 

           BNTAC will accept a letter from your GP as a temporary exemption if your medical condition falls outside of a serious adverse reaction or serious medical condition.
