Excerpt from the OH&S Canada magazine

The Ontario government Is providing employers with the new Gen. workplace guide, which will help them develop safety plan to better protect workers, customers and clients.

The downloadable toolkit offers tips on how to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 is more people get back on the job during Stage II of the reopening of the province.

“As more regions enter stage II of reopening, we want to give businesses the tools and resources they need to adapt and succeed in this new environment,” Said Premier Doug Ford. “By providing this guide on Covid-19 workplace safety, employers, employees and customers can have the confidence they need to resume business as usual with the right health safety measures in place.”

The new guide will help each employer create a safety plan that is right for their own unique workplace, according to a government news release.

Governments first Gen. workplace guide is accompanied by a template that employers can fill in to develop their own unique Covid-19 safety plan.

My opinion

Is my firm belief that the Ontario government has done a very commendable job on directing resources to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak. It really doesn’t matter what party you belong to you have to admit that Premier Doug Ford and his team has been transparent and focused to deal with current issues whether the decisions especially if tough decisions are necessary to deal with those unwilling to accept the new workplace standards.

Well done, Premier Ford and Team!
