COVID-19 Safe Work Procedures for the BC Public Service

Before worksites begin to restart or increase operations, the employer must implement a COVID-19 Safety Plan. Part of this plan is to provide safe work procedures to employees to help prevent exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace and in the course of work activities. The procedures should be customized to fit each individual worksite and circumstances and regularly reviewed to ensure they are effective. Employees must also be provided with and trained in the procedures, and they must be posted at the workplace as part of your COVID-19 Safety Plan.

These procedures are specific to the prevention of exposure to COVID-19. Other safe work procedures pertaining to the work being performed must still be followed.

The following safe work procedures have been written for all B.C. Government worksites to use.
