Covid-19 Exposure Control Planning and Risk Assessments 

As employers prepare to resume business, they must have an Exposure Control Plan in place that looks at the risk of COVID-19 transmission in their workplace. The plan identifies how everyone can work safely, determining what safety measures and procedures to put in place. Risk assessments are required as part of your Exposure Control Plan and need to be updated as situations change. Exposure Control Plans and risk assessments should be completed with input from workers, and they need to be kept at the worksite and available on request by WSCC OHS inspectors.

  • It is the employer’s responsibility to complete a Risk Assessment and Worksite Precautions to identify what needs to be put in place to ensure a safe workplace.

  • It is the worker’s responsibility to complete a Field Level Risk Assessment (FLRA) to identify what additional safety measures and procedures need to be put in place. The FLAR is to protect each worker, depending on their job. The worker must also complete a FLAR if planning to do work at an offsite work location.
