Tools to Support Safe & Sustainable RTWp

Needs Assessment Survey
We’d like to understand your organization’s biggest challenges as you prepare to return to the workplace following COVID-19. This information will help us better support you through the recovery phase.
Readiness Assessment
The Readiness Assessment is a self-administered questionnaire to help businesses assess how prepared they are for returning to the workplace following COVID-19. It is meant to prompt thinking and bring to light considerations for a safe & sustainable Return to the Workplace.
RTWp Roadmap
The RTWp Roadmap is an action plan template for businesses to build their Return to the Workplace plan. Structured into 3 stages of recovery, the Roadmap outlines specific control measures for people, places & things with considerations for evidence-informed health & safety advice and practical solutions.
Workplace Innovations Survey
In partnership with the Conference Board of Canada, we’re surveying employers and workers to understand how innovations and emerging solutions are playing a role to support organizations and workplace health and safety during COVID-19.
Maintaining An Effective JHSC
An effectively functioning JHSC is a legal requirement for Ontario, and particularly critical during emergencies such as COVID-19. Committee members must be well informed of the hazards, remain active in identifying hazards and recommend controls for hazards in a timely manner.
Duty to Report
To help control the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure an appropriate response, workers and employers need to understand their illness reporting duties and who to contact for further guidance.
