Working during the COVID-19 pandemic? Concerned about worker health and safety?
Health and safety law says employers must take every reasonable precaution to protect workers. But what precautions are reasonable? Just as important, what precautions are effective and follow the latest Public Health directives?
This page is dedicated to answering these questions. It is a work in progress.
We start by posting some information applicable to most workplaces. Each day we are adding new resources, including information about applicable safeguards in particular work settings. As updated, work-related information comes available from researchers and health authorities we will make every effort to update our resources accordingly.
