COVID-19 Sector-Specific Health and Safety Guidance Documents

In partnership with the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development, WSPS - along with our fellow health and safety associations - have developed technical sector-specific guidance documents to assist employers as they prepare to reopen their businesses. These documents outline safety measures that should be followed so that workplaces can be reopened safely for workers, customers and the general public.
