Tourism & Hospitality Best Practice Protocols
All employers resuming operations are required to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan that outlines the policies, guidelines, and procedures they have put in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in their business. This plan follows the six steps outlined in the COVID-19 and returning to safe operation template developed by WorkSafeBC. Employers must involve frontline workers, joint health and safety committees, and supervisors in identifying protocols for their workplace. They do not need a formal plan in place to begin operation, but are expected to develop it while protecting the safety of their workers.
Furthermore, as per the Provincial Health Officer’s order of May 14, 2020, employers are required to post their safety plan on their websites (if they have one) and at their workplace, and have it available for WorkSafeBC or health officers on request.
