Information and resources about phase two of BC’s Restart Plan
As we implement phase two of BC’s Restart Plan, we have information to help you develop safety plans for your business, access our facilities, and connect you to the services you need to stay well and stay safe.
Doing business during phase two of BC’s Restart Plan means rolling out a number of safety and preventive measures to slow the progression of COVID-19, protecting employees, customers and our communities.
COVID-19 safety plans:
Every employer is required to have a COVID-19 safety plan that assesses the risk of exposure at their workplace and implements measures to keep their workers safe. If a formal plan is not already in place prior to operation, you are expected to develop it while protecting the safety of your workers.
To help you develop your plan, WorkSafeBC offers information and resources for keeping workers safe, including a template for a COVID-19 Safety Plan.
Fraser Health and WorkSafeBC will not be reviewing or approving the plans of individual employers, but in accordance with the order of the Provincial Health Officer, this plan must be posted at the worksite. During a Fraser Health or WorkSafeBC inspection, the safety plan and/or the steps taken to protect workers will be reviewed.
