BUSINESS SUPPORT

On this business support page you will find links to best practices and other useful techniques and tactics to get your business up and running again safely and smoothly.

The Government of Ontario is releasing safety guidelines to protect workers, customers and the general public from COVID-19 in preparation for a gradual reopening of our economy.

These resources are available for different sectors. Sector guidelines contain recommendations and tips for employers on how to keep workers safe on the job.

Posters for both employers and workers also offer advice on preventative actions, including physical distancing and workplace sanitization. Employers are encouraged to download the posters to print and post in the workplace. As new sectors of the economy begin to reopen, additional COVID-19 workplace safety resources will be added.

Please note that it is important to follow public health guidelines, maintain physical distancing, and only return to work when it is prompted by the government and safe to do so. The below guides are directly from the Government of Ontario and Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health (WDGPH).

  • Are you compliant with workplace screening regulations?

    Businesses or organizations must operate in compliance with the advice, recommendations, and instructions issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health on screening individuals. Workplaces must screen any workers or essential visitors entering the work environment and some businesses or organizations must screen patrons. Where this is required, it is noted in the sector-specific pieces of the framework.

    The Get Ready Daily Screening Tool™ is one option that has been presented to Ontario Chambers of Commerce. It is a simple and easily accessible app that allows employees, essential visitors, and contractors to complete the required assessment on their desktop or mobile device to determine if they are COVID-19 safe to enter a workplace. With custom logo branding available, and a manager dashboard with at-a-glance results, it's an easy way to be compliant.
