Have you implemented or re-implemented safety plans for your practice in 2022 for COVID-19?
Effective January 7, 2022, BC announced that businesses are once again required to implement (or re-implement) COVID Safety Plans. Businesses will need to ensure that they have a valid written policy addressing COVID and that they are properly observing COVID-19 protocols in their workplace.
It’s important for employers to review their internal procedures to ensure they meet the requirements – WorkSafe BC has created a checklist to help. Some of the requirements include occupancy signs, barriers between employees or patients and having written Safety Plans.
If you are looking for support on how to write a Safety Plan or amend your previous version, contact our Founder, Sandra Reder to coordinate support.
