Many employers have communicated their OSSE concerns in relation to COVID-19. As a certifying partner (CP), we have been working closely with WorkSafeBC in getting answers on how to remain safe and trying to work around COVID-19.
WorkSafeBC reply: All audits that are underway should follow good hygiene practices (i.e. social/physical distancing during interviews) and continue as normally as possible. We understand that some employers are scaling back operations, or changing their current work process flows, and as such, auditors need to be flexible in their ability to observe and conduct interviews. Document reviews should not be affected as directive documents and records should still be available.
