CAPIC has released recommended Health and Safety Guidelines for Commercial Photographers returning to work during the Covid-19 pandemic. These are guidelines that photographers should adapt to fit their own respective business. All photographers following these guidelines must ensure that they are also abiding by all local health and safety directions. Public Health authorities set the minimum standards and regulations and these must be adhered to by everyone.
Provincial Ministries of Labour require that employers have a comprehensive health and safety plan in place for Covid-19. Photographers must establish their own policies that clearly outline the measures they are implementing to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. The following guidelines are designed to assist commercial photographers in the creation of their Covid-19 Workplace Policy.
