B.C. will move forward with restarting the province beginning later this month. Under the plan, government will work closely with public health officials, businesses and labour organizations to lift restrictions in phases, gradually allowing for more social and economic activity, while closely monitoring health information to minimize the risk to the public. WorkSafeBC is developing industry-specific guidance to help employers bring workers and customers back safely in conjunction with industry based associations. Any business restarting operations must ensure it is in compliance with the provincial health officer’s orders and in accordance with occupational health and safety guidance provided by WorkSafeBC.
