About us

COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria (CQV) is responsible for Victoria's COVID-19 Accommodation response, including:

  • Mandatory quarantine for returned overseas travellers
  • Emergency Accommodation for people that cannot safely isolate/quarantine in their accommodation.

The Victorian Chief Health Officer has mandated that all returning overseas travellers arriving in Victoria must go into mandatory quarantine for 14 days from the day of their arrival to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

In addition, CQV is responsible for the operation of Victoria's Emergency Accommodation program for community members and their close contacts who have tested positive for COVID-19 and where an assessment has concluded that there are no other suitable alternative accommodation options for self-isolation.

Infection control and prevention is the primary objective of the mandatory quarantine and emergency accommodation programs.

About the role

As the Safety Manager you will oversee safety, risk, and compliance at all quarantine hotels within mandatory quarantine and emergency accommodation program to ensure that a safe working environment is always maintained. You will provide a high level of advice and support to staff and senior leaders to establish, implement and maintain safety systems and controls to effectively deliver the mandatory and emergency accommodation program activities. As the Safety Manager you will be responsible for championing the health and safety agenda for the program with an ability to manage safety and risk in a dynamic and complex environment. 

You will implement and drive the existing OHS Management system requirements providing guidance and advice in partnership with the executive, senior leaders, and site managers. You will analyse, report, and communicate to stakeholders the safety status, improvements and actions of the program across all workplaces.
