Orders from the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) or a Medical Health Officer (MHO) take precedence over this policy.

All employers in British Columbia have an obligation under the Workers Compensation Act to ensure the health and safety of workers and others at their workplace and to implement polices and procedures to protect workers from the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

At West Coast Seniors Housing Management we have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan (Safety Plan) mandated by the order of the Provincial Health Officer. This plan outlines the policies, guidelines, and procedures put in place to eliminate, and where elimination is not possible, to reduce, the risk of COVID-19 exposure to West Coast Seniors Housing Management workers, contractors, volunteers, residents, and visitors.

This Safety Plan addresses current operating status of White Rock Seniors Village. As services are gradually  increased within the care home, this plan will be  updated.

As a part of assessing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in the workplace, the following groups and information sources  were consulted:
