Social distancing guidelines in the workplace
As an employer, are you ready to change areas of your business to minimize health risks? These changes can include:
- Holding meetings remotely, to limit in-person contact
- Allowing employees to work from home more
- Having physical distancing between workstations
It is important to remember; employees have the right to refuse unsafe work. And the Occupational Health and Safety Act requires employers to provide a safe workplace.
