A seven-step risk management plan is available to assist architects and clients when re-occupying buildings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Overall, the plan assists with assessing hazards, applying architectural or engineering strategies, and reducing risk.
It uses an evidence-based design approach, documents design decisions, and functions as a repository for coordinated work with building owners.
Follow the steps below and use the worksheets provided to develop and document the risk management plan. The plan should be regularly reviewed, updated, and documented through all stages of design, construction, and post-occupancy to ensure expectations are met.
