To help businesses stay on top of health and safety guidance, the province has launched the new Workplace Safety Plan Builder, a free interactive tool making it easier for workplaces to create and update their COVID-19 safety plans. The tool was developed specifically to support small businesses and was designed with their input.
The safety plan builder will lead employers through an easy process to create and update an online safety plan that is right for their workplace. It also allows for easy customization. Employers who sign up for updates will be notified when information is changed, allowing them to stay up to date with current guidance and requirements.
Having a written safety plan is mandatory for businesses permitted to be open under the Reopening Ontario Act.
