Ready to Reopen?

Ready to Reopen?

For businesses that are part of the BC Restart Plan, Phase 2, here are some resources to help you get ready to open and operate safely during a pandemic.

COVID-19 Safe Plan
WorkSafeBC has created a COVID-19 and Returning to Safe Operation page to provide general guidance on developing reopening plans. It lays out a six-step process for employers to follow when preparing to return to operation safely, in a manner that reduces the potential for COVID-19 transmission. A planning tool will soon be available online to assist employers in applying this process in their workplace.

Tip Sheets
Use these tip sheets from the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety as a guide while operating safely during a pandemic. Each document offers health and safety tips and good practices for both employers and workers, specific to each industry or sector. Note that the guidance provided in these tip sheets cover just some of the adjustments organizations can make. For further information on COVID-19, refer to the Public Health Agency of Canada.
