As you and your staff take steps to return to your office or regular workplace, employers need to develop a plan that reduces the risk of exposure. That plan will address how:
- Your workplace is organized and arranged
- Some specific activities are carried out
- You clean and sanitize
- Changes and precautions will be communicated to everyone at the workplace
Employers will be required to:
- Review the new Health and Safety Guidelines, best practices and other resources at WorkSafeBC.com.
- Adapt these materials into appropriate COVID Safe Plans for your workplace
Sectors that have operated during the pandemic may need to update their COVID Safe Plans to fit with updated Health and Safety Guidelines, best practices and resources. For resources, visit WorkSafeBC.com or call WorkSafeBC’s Prevention Information Line at 888-621-7233.
For more information or if you have any questions, Small Business BC advisors can offer assistance through the B.C. Business COVID-19 Support Service by phone (1-833-254-4357), email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and live chat at https://covid.smallbusinessbc.ca.
