COVID-19 Safety Plan (VPHR Portfolio)

Learn more about the VPHR’s current and ongoing response to this extraordinary situation, and our efforts to protect the health and safety of our staff and the campus community.

In consultation with Public Health, UBC is streamlining the safety planning process to align with BC Restart plan and what has been learned about COVID-19 over the past year.

Seven new COVID-19 Safety Plans are available university-wide.

These seven new COVID-19 Safety Plans do not require customization for VPHR as they are applied to general situations such as learning, research, and administrative spaces.  This will ensure a consistent approach across the university, encompassing our campuses and other learning sites. 

Please visit the COVID-19 Safety Plans page on the Safety and Risk Management website to familiarize yourself with the new safety plans.
