New resource for reviewing and updating your COVID-19 Safety Plan
Employers are required to have a COVID-19 Safety Plan that outlines the policies, guidelines, and procedures that are in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Employers must also review and update these plans if conditions change or in response to provincial health officer orders. The order issued by the provincial health officer on November 7, 2020, requires that all employers in the affected regions review their COVID-19 Safety Plan to ensure that appropriate protocols are in place to protect workers from the risk of transmission, including physical distancing, the use of barriers, and the use of masks.
Our new resource, Reviewing and updating your COVID-19 safety plan: A guide for employers, will help you review your plan to ensure it continues to be effective and functioning properly. It includes checklists that you can use to review each of the first five steps described in WorkSafeBC’s COVID-19 Safety Plan.
