Personal services Protocols published by WorksafeBC

WorkSafeBC has released its protocols for returning to work.

NOTE: Personal services are currently under order to close by the provincial health officer.

Guidance for additional personal service providers will be added as they are developed.

Operators may not reopen until this order is lifted.

  • These protocols are for employers providing personal services, including barbers, hairdressers, nail salons, and aestheticians.
  • These employers may also benefit from reviewing other protocols if their workplace includes other work environments such as office space, retail services, or food and drink services.
  • Employers resuming operations are required to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan that outlines the policies, guidelines, and procedures they have put in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
  • Employers must involve frontline workers, joint health and safety committees, and supervisors in identifying protocols for their workplace. Click Here
