As we continue to work through the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of all visitors and employees is a top priority ensuring the necessary steps are taken to support a safe environment.
Aligned with that, Tourism Whistler is required by section 21 (2)(c) of the Workers Compensation Act to establish occupational health and safety policies in accordance with Occupational Health & Safety Regulation, and have been directed by WorkSafe BC to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan that outlines the guidelines, policies, and protocols in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. In accordance with the Provincial Health Officer, the plan will be posted at the workplace and available to all employees.
Outline of protocols for the Whistler Visitor Centre:
- Plexi-glass barriers have been installed at the desk to provide a barrier between employees and visitors
- Floor markings have been added indicating one-way travel within the facility with one entrance and one exit
- Stanchions are in place to keep Visitor Centre guests distanced from other guests using the building
- Floor decals are placed within the Visitor Centre and outside to manage lines and remind visitors of physical distancing measures
- Two employees maximum are permitted behind the service desk and must enter / exit via opposite sides of the pillar inside the desk rather than walking past each other to stay 2 metres apart
