City of Ottawa Releases Business Reopening Toolkit

By:

Posted May 22, 2020

On May, 20, 2020, the City of Ottawa released the Business Reopening Toolkit to offer guidance to businesses that prepare to recommence operations safely as Ontario begins reopening the economy. The toolkit provides sector-specific information with respect to: restaurants and food services; construction; retail; arts, culture, festivals, and events; manufacturing; office; healthcare providers and personal services; agriculture; and outdoor recreation.

It also provides resources, such as recommended public health signage, the Employee Self-Screening Questionnaire, and links to additional workplace health and safety resources.

In addition to this City of Ottawa toolkit, it is recommended that businesses review the sector-specific guidelines released by the Ontario government and health and safety associations. They can be found here and here.

The Ontario government has also launched a website to inform business about personal protective equipment suppliers. This Workplace PPE Supplier Directory provides a list of Ontario companies and business associations that offer to supply personal protective equipment.
