Workplace Health and Safety Planning
The province is supporting workplaces to implement safety plans to reduce the spread of COVID-19. A COVID-19 Safety Plan guide and template has been created to aid workplaces to develop procedures for safety practices such as staff protection measures, staff and client screening, managing potential cases/exposures, and routine evaluation of these plans. This guide also discusses the Hierarchy of Controls, as mentioned in the Primary Care Provider Teleconference, which outlines control measures that can be implemented to reduce risk to workers by breaking the chain of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
When developing and/or evaluating your workplace safety plan, it may be helpful to review the Guidance for Health Care: Health and Safety COVID-19 tip sheet to ensure risks are being mitigated wherever possible.
