Workplace Safety Planning for COVID-19

Employers must have an Exposure Control Plan in place that looks at the risk of COVID-19 transmission in their workplace.

Here are the steps that employers should follow to identify what safety measures and procedures need to be in place to reopen and run your workplace safely.

Stay informed, be prepared and follow public health advice. Remember everyone must follow Public Health orders and employers should review their Exposure Control Plan and risk assessments regularly to keep their plans up-to-date.

You do not need to submit the completed assessments to WSCC. To have an OHS Inspector assist with your risk assessment, please email Covid-19@wscc.nt.ca or Covid-19@wscc.nu.ca
