COVID-19: Victorian worker paper permit scheme now fully digital with Nintex automated solution Featured


Global process management and automation vendor Nintex has developed a free, downloadable workflow automation solution which it says is helping Melbourne-based employers and employees to safely and legally fast track their participation in the recent Victorian Worker Permit Scheme, during COVID-19 stage four restrictions.

The fully digital permit - which transforms the Victorian Government’s worker permit scheme from a paper-based process into a fully automated solution - leverages Nintex Workflow Cloud, Nintex Workflow, Nintex Forms, and Nintex Sign powered by Adobe Sign to effectively eliminate paper from the government’s nomination process.

“Nintex is pleased to support both employers and employees with legally compliant automation to help them more easily and safely secure a work permit in greater metropolitan Melbourne during COVID-19 stage four restrictions,” Nintex Technical Director, Chris Ellis.

“We’re committed to helping organisations meet safety and regulatory requirements while going digital with easy-to-use and powerful software solutions that improve the way people work.

“Our fully digital and mobile-optimised Victorian worker permit saves everyone time while eliminating physical paperwork in the process which can be easily ruined or mislaid.”

With the Worker Permit scheme effective since Wednesday 5 August, workers in Melbourne are now required to show a permit if travelling further than five kilometres, meaning that employers who require staff to attend a work site must issue a work permit to their employees or risk harsh financial penalties.

Nintex says that with a paperless worker permit process, manual steps including wet signatures are removed thanks to its automated process for the Victorian Worker Permit, which is accessible via mobile devices.

Additionally, within the automated solution, Nintex Forms have been designed to launch directly within a customer’s Nintex Workflow Cloud environment to make it fast and easy for employers and their employees to fill in the required information and electronically sign the digital documents.

Nintex says its customers may also quickly configure their own workflow and store completed forms in a centralised content management system or on a company intranet, route them to a central email address, or simply store them in an electronic file store to share on completion.
