The safety of our employees and citizens continues to be our top priority as employees return to the workplace.

Guidelines and Checklists

A number of safety procedures and guidelines must be in place in order to return employees to the workplace. Employees and managers must understand and comply with all safety requirements. The ministry must assess each workplace and determine the necessary procedures using the safety resources below.

The following guidelines will help determine when and how employees return to the workplace.

Masks - New July 30, 2020

As more employees return to the workplace, there may be occasions where people are unable to maintain two metres of physical distance. In order to support a safe return, we are recommending that employees wear a non-medical mask when two metres of physical distancing can't be maintained. This is consistent with the recommendations of the Chief Medical Health Officer. In particular, employees are strongly encouraged to wear masks when riding in elevators.

COVID-19 in the Workplace - Updated August 6, 2020

As we return employees to the workplace, there is ongoing potential that we will have to handle positive or potential positive cases of COVID-19 in the workplace. In order to help prepare managers to handle positive COVID-19 cases in the workplace, a cheat sheet is available to managers to compile the various sources of information.
