Temporary Workers on Assignment
We keep in regular contact with all of our workers to carefully monitor their situation and do our best to keep everyone safe. We have instructed staff to ask workers whether they have travelled to restricted areas, experienced any symptoms or whether anyone in their household has experienced symptoms and to send them home immediately if so. This is alongside any client-specific measures that have been agreed.
Our procedures are in line with the most recent government and public health official’s advice. We have implemented a series of procedures to ensure continued supply to key sectors whilst aiming to keep clients and workers safe. These include:
- Regular identification of those exposed
- Mandatory self-quarantine measures
- Client-specific measures
- Thorough interview/screening process
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If our site was put on lockdown for the virus would you still supply staff?
We do not believe that it would be in accordance with our legal duty of care to our workers to send them to sites that have been locked down due to a coronavirus outbreak. We would wait for Government advice that the site was safe following a deep clean.
Q. Are you supplying additional PPE?
A. The World Health Organisation and Public Health Ontario does not currently recommend PPE for controlling the Coronavirus other than for workers in the healthcare sector caring for patients with Covid-19.
Q. Who should I speak to about any Coronavirus-related problems?
A . You should speak to your local branch who will be able to advise you of current best practice. All our consultants stay up to date with government guidelines and advice.
