Risk Informed Decision Making
Businesses can implement key measures to limit the spread of the virus in their settings. The Public Health Agency of Canada recommends that employers and business owners conduct a risk assessment to determine the most appropriate public  health actions for a particular workplace/business during the COVID-19 pandemic. This  involves considering the epidemiology of the disease, assessing characteristics of the workplace settings and its employees and clients, as well as assessing the importance of associated risks. Introduction of measures to respond to COVID-19 within the workplaces/businesses can be considered on a continuum from promoting public health messages, to enhancing communication to employees, contractors and customers, to implementing risk mitigation strategies, to closing the workplace.

The Government of Canada has created a risk assessment with recommendations of what employers should consider for each specific situation. Access the risk assessment here. 

Prepare and Protect
Being informed and knowing what to do in the event of an outbreak will help minimize the impacts on our daily lives, work, and activities. The Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety has a webpage dedicated to providing guidance, advice and tools to help you plan, prepare, prevent and protect against infectious disease outbreaks.
