WorkSafeBC Guidelines for Re-opening
WorkSafeBC published Offices: Protocols for returning to operation to help businesses with office space develop a Safety Plan and re-open safely. The detailed guidelines cover various levels of protection you may need to develop measures for, including around building access, elevator use, workstations, deliveries, outside visitors, communal spaces, and other aspects of workplace operations in an office.
