WorkSafeBC mandates that employers develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan that outlines the policies, guidelines, and procedures they have put in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace. Before resuming activities that require additional faculty, staff, or students to return to work (on campus or in the field), a university approved, unit specific, COVID-19 Safety Plan must be in place for a given workspace, ensuring compliance with WorkSafeBC requirements. Prior to approving a COVID-19 Safety Plan, Chairs/Deans/Directors must confirm that front line workers and the relevant local safety committee were given the opportunity to review the plan.
Academic units have been advised of the above requirements, and faculty or supervisors that would like to return to work, or have their employees return to work, are to submit their draft Safety Plans to the co-chairs of the relevant Local Joint Health and Safety Committee for review and feedback (before completing this webform application). To facilitate these processes, faculty and supervisors are encouraged to use the COVID-19 Safety Plan template and COVID-19 Safety Plan - Local Safety Committee Confirmation of Review Form provided below. The Co-Chairs of the local safety committee will request or assign two committee members to review the COVID-19 Safety Plan – an appropriate manager representative and worker representative to the COVID-19 Safety Plan, based on who are most knowledgeable of the work area addressed by the COVID-19 Safety Plan, and who are available and willing to participate in the review process.
