Businesses and employers can prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 within the workplace. Employers should respond in a way that takes into account the level of disease transmission in their communities and revise their business response plans as needed.
Performing a risk/hazard assessment of your workplace will help ensure municipal, provincial and federal requirements are being met. As this pandemic is ever-changing employers must remain flexible with their response and be able to pivot in a cost effective manner.
Bulldog Safety will work with you in producing a plan that includes a written policy to address COVID-19 business concerns.

A professional consultant will act as part of your management staff or act independently to provide oversight of the projects health and safety program.
Bulldog Safety can provide regularly scheduled checks of a workplace or part of a workplace in order to identify health and safety hazards and recommend corrective action.
Workplace Risk Assessments
As an Employer, you must ensure that regular inspections are made of all workplaces (including buildings, structures, grounds excavations, tools, equipment, machinery work methods and practices). WorkSafeBC regulations (OHSR Sec 3.5-3.8) are what is deemed as prescriptive, meaning it is a legal requirement.
Bulldog Safety Consulting will come to your workplace or job site to conduct a comprehensive inspection which will include a risk/hazard assessment. Our inspector holds a CSO designation allowing us to inspect any industrial, commercial or construction site. Once the inspection has been completed, you will receive a written report and recommendation for any issues found.
On January 01, 2018, WorkSafeBC imposed new regulations regarding the safety of your storage racks. In general, the new subsection in the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation requires that employers ensure that their storage racks are installed and have the appropriate information displayed.
Bulldog Safety’s Rack Inspection Safety course will leave your employees with the knowledge to conduct the required monthly inspections. Or, if you prefer Bulldog Safety will make it easy and do the monthly inspection for you.
Joint Health & Safety Committee Building / Review / Facilitating
One of the most important regulations perscribed by WorkSafeBC is the formation of a Joint Occupational Health & Safety Committee (JOHSC). The main focus of the JOHSC is to open a dialogue between management and employees. Meetings are required on a monthly basis to discuss workplace safety concerns. Let Bulldog Safety Consulting help in the formation of your JOHSC. From member selection to meeting layout, we can help establish and maintain your Joint Occupational Health & Safety Committee.
Employee Handbook Building
A handbook sets expectations, encourages employees to behave in certain ways, helps ensure employees are treated consistently, publicizes employee benefits and helps win unemployment claims and lawsuits. These are just a few of the reasons why every employer, regardless of the number of employees, should have one.
Bulldog Safety will work with employers to construct a handbook that is made to provide employees a guide on how to succeed in their new role. Secondary it’s meant to ensure that employees know how to behave, perform and make clear the consequences if they fail to meet expectations.
