Like most provinces across Canada, Ontario is opening its economy in a phased manner. As lockdown restrictions ease, more and more businesses will begin reopening.
However, this welcome change is not without its risks. Whether your business is a team of five or fifty, going back to work during a pandemic requires careful planning.
It may seem like a mammoth task. Being a small business, you don't have large HR or health and safety departments to chalk out these plans. Where do you even begin?
You need to update your health and safety policies before you can call employees back to work. Ensure your workplace follows the latest health and safety guidelines. Put in place social distancing measures.
You may need to get suitable personal protective equipment. Stock up on cleaning supplies and set disinfection procedures in place. Communicate the changes and new procedures to your staff. Make relevant posters, factsheets and guides for staff, visitors and customers.
Don’t you wish if only all these resources were available gift-wrapped in one neat package? Wish granted. With Peninsula's SafeCheck Toolbox, that's exactly what you'll get.
