1. Complete Workplace COVID-19 Supervisor Checklist

During the pandemic, the Supervisor has been required to complete the Workplace COVID-19 Supervisor Checklist. This checklist ensures you have set up the workplace using the hierarchy of controls and allows for a safe working environment during the pandemic.

2. Risk Assessment of the Work

The checklist links to a risk assessment template to design standard operating procedures which not only documents your due diligence, but also serves as a central document to ensure a shared understanding of how staff must work on site during the pandemic.

The SOP satisfies the Occupational Health and Safety Act requirement to 'provide written instructions' to workers so that they may carry out their work safely.

3. If needed, request an on site assessment

If you feel that the inspection, risk assessment and SOP exercises did not identify all the risks and did not allow you to create procedures to prevent transmission, please contact for an on-site assessment. Please attach your completed checklist and your completed SOP to the email.
