Green text throughout the document can be replaced with your organization’s information.

The checklists in each section are fillable – if the item listed is applicable to your workplace, you can click on the box and a checkmark will appear. If the item as written is not applicable, you may re-word it to meet the needs of your workplace or delete it.

There are boxes to add additional information at the end of each section. If there is no additional information to be added, the box can be deleted.
Assemble a team including leadership and worker representatives from the Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee (JOHSC). For sites that do not have a JOHSC, a worker safety representative must be involved in the process of developing your COVID-19 Safety Plan.

You may wish to perform an inspection of the assisted living residence as a part of developing your COVID-19 Safety Plan. SafeCare BC has developed a COVID-19 Safety Inspection Tool that can guide you through the development of your COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Once completed, forward a copy of the Safety Inspection Checklist to your Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee, and keep a copy on file.

In accordance with the order of the Provincial Health Officer dated May 14th, 2020 a copy of the completed COVID-19 Safety Plan must be posted on your website and also made readily available at the workplace for review by workers, contractors, volunteers, suppliers, visitors, and any other person who could be providing services at the workplace.
