COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan

Let us help you develop a customized COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan.

Overview
As an employer it’s your responsibility under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances to protect a worker. This guide will help you use current public health and workplace health and safety information to develop a plan and put controls into place to help make the workplace safer for everyone.

All businesses that are operating must have a written safety plan by law. The plan must be made available to anyone who asks to see it, and posted in a place where it will be seen easily.

All employers are encouraged to review and update their safety plan regularly. You can use the COVID-19 workplace safety plan template to help create your plan.

Employers are not required to send their plan to the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development and the ministry will not provide comments on safety plans sent in. During an inspection of your workplace, an inspector or compliance officer could ask whether you have developed a safety plan and may ask to see it.

Discuss and share your safety plan with everyone at work, including:

workers
unions
supervisors
health and safety representatives or members of joint health and safety committees (JHSCs)
contractors
suppliers
