Yellowknife, NT (October 29, 2021) – The Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) has updated resources and tools to assist employers with exposure control planning during the ongoing pandemic.
Use this form if you need to screen workers before they come to work. You must determine whether the worker presents a risk of exposing anyone at the site to COVID-19.
As a worker, you must perform a hazard assessment at the work site BEFORE WORK BEGINS. This assessment (often called a Field Level Hazard Assessment) uses information only available at the work site to identify what at the site can hurt you or make you ill and how you will protect yourself.
Employers can use this tool to identify where, how, and how often workers may be exposed to COVID-19 in the workplace. Everyone must follow Public Health directives.
