Employee daily self-screening in BC, are companies required to keep on file each day as proof?

Confirmation of health checks are needed, as per WorkSafeBC guidance. See below: 

Employers must ensure that every worker performs a daily health check before entering the workplace. Health checks are mandatory self-assessments conducted by workers and includes confirming with their employer, in written or verbal format, that they have reviewed the complete list of entry requirements (included on this entry check poster) and that none of the prohibited criteria apply to them. 

Employers can use a number of methods to confirm that this self-assessment has taken place. Some examples include: 

  • A written health check declaration completed by workers before entry. 
  • An online health check form completed by workers before entry. 
  • A verbal check in, done either in person, virtually, or by phone with every worker, confirming that the worker has completed their daily health check. 
  • Other forms of a supervised daily health check process based on the above.
