Controlling the risk of COVID-19 exposure
June 3, 2020 - June 4, 2020
Employers must take all necessary precautions to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and illness to themselves, workers, and others at the workplace. This includes:
Implementing a policy requiring anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 such as sore throat, fever, sneezing, or coughing to self-isolate at home for 14 days, as well as anyone advised by public health to self-isolate
-Maintaining a distance of six feet between workers wherever possible by revising work schedules, organizing work tasks, posting occupancy limits on elevators, and limiting the number of workers at one time in break locations
-Workplaces can implement a number of measures to ensure that the appropriate number of people are in each area of a worksite by reducing in-person meetings and other gatherings, and by maintaining an up-to-date list of employees at the workplace
-Providing adequate hand-washing facilities on site for all workers and ensuring their location is visible and easily accessed
-Provide and maintain adequate washroom facilities as required by OSHA.
