Contractors should regularly evaluate their health and safety procedures, as well as the specific hazards at their job sites, consistent with their Provincial authorities and the Public Health Agency of Canada recommendations to determine the appropriate job hazard analysis and safety procedures for the project / task as it relates to the spread and / or transmission of COVID-19. All contractors should incorporate COVID-19 transmission and prevention into all job hazard analyzes (JHAs) and pre-task safety planning for all aspects of the work.
