COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan Requirements
Main Page Content
All businesses and workplaces are required to prepare a safety plan and have it available in writing for review, upon request by the Health Unit. The safety plan must describe the measures (e.g., screening, physical distancing, face coverings or masks, cleaning and disinfecting, and the use of personal protective equipment) and procedures which have been implemented or will be implemented in the business, place of work, facility, or establishment to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
To assist with this task, the WECHU has created a COVID-19 Safety Plan Template (PDF) and fillable Word document with examples. The safety plan should be posted in a conspicuous place where it is visible to individuals working in or attending the location. For specific questions related your COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan, please contact your area Public Health Inspector or call the Environmental Health department at 519-258-2146 ext. 4475.
