To our valued clients,
Coronavirus stories are everywhere these days and the many of the headlines are pretty scary. That’s why we’re taking steps to assure that our customers, our community and our crews are protected.
As health professionals are telling us, hand-washing is critical. In addition to carefully washing up or using hand sanitizer as needed, our crews are taking the additional steps we’ve outlined below.
On-site best practices
The health and safety of workers is a top concern amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, all parties must place an increased focus on health and safety in order to keep job sites open.
All measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 should be done in compliance with requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and associated regulations and public health directives issued by the Chief Medical Officer of Health.
In addition, below are a set of resources, tips and best practices to help employers prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We appreciate your patience regarding this challenging time, but we take this virus very seriously and are taking as many precautions as possible to ensure the safety of you, our employees, and the community.
Physical distancing (two metres)
As advised by the Chief Medical Officer, public health officials, and outlined throughout government communications, physical distancing is required to control the spread of COVID-19.
In order to ensure physical distancing on site, employers should consider:
staggering start times
restricting the number of people on-site and where they are assigned to work
controlling site movement (by limiting the potential for workers to gather, including personnel in material hoists and site trailers)
limiting the number of people who use elevators and hoists at one time
holding meetings in an outside or large space to enable physical distancing
limiting unnecessary on-site contact between workers, and between workers and outside service providers, and encourage physical distancing in these areas (for example, by removing coffee trucks from site)
