UPDATE - March 31, 2020

Workplaces that remain open during this COVID-19 pandemic must be vigilant in ensuring the health and safety of its workers.

As per the Occupational Health and Safety Act, employers shall “take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances” to protect workers. This statement may seem a little vague, especially in times like these, but we are here to give you some tips to help guide you through these uncertain times.

Whenever possible, employers should allow employees to work from home. This will allow for less people in the workplace, and therefore the risk of spreading and contracting COVID-19 will be mitigated.

When working from home is not possible, employers should encourage physical distancing within the workplace. This means that, if possible, employees should remain 2 metres (6 feet) apart at all times. If a meeting is scheduled to take place, perhaps consider a skype meeting or a conference call.

Proper hand hygiene is, according to top experts, one of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. You may want to put hand sanitizer units around your facility. You should also encourage all employees to participate in regular and proper hand washing with soap and water. It would be beneficial to show the following video to all employees to ensure effective hand washing is taking place:

  • It is very important to make sure that all employees are aware that they must notify their supervisor when they are sick. The employer must ensure that all employees who feel ill stay home to prevent others from getting sick.

    Regular cleaning and disinfecting measures should be increased while this pandemic carries on. This may include having cleaning staff come in more often than before. Additionally, if not already being done, you may ask your employees to wipe down surfaces that they use daily.

    As the situation continues to change daily, we encourage all of our clients to keep up to date and follow the guidelines outlined by our Public Health Officials and Provincial and Federal Government Officials. The following website is a helpful resource to keep track of all COVID-19-related updates in Ontario:

  • Please also feel free to reach out to us via telephone at 905-664-4943 , or email at info@bullivant.ca should you have any questions or concerns.

    As the virus continues to spread, it is important that we all do our part to help contain it. Physical distancing, washing our hands regularly, not touching our faces, and staying home are some of the main ways that we can stop the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the burden on our healthcare system.

    Our healthcare workers are currently on the front lines battling this virus. Without their expertise and dedication, we would have already lost the fight. Let’s say thank you to these workers by doing what we can from home.

    However, staying home in isolation in addition to feeling anxious about current worldwide uncertainties are key factors that may take a toll on your mental health. Fortunately, there are multiple online tools that have been created to help us pull through.

    Please take a look at the following mental health support website links if you feel that you or someone you know may benefit from them:

    As we continue to take extra precautions, we encourage all of our clients to follow the guidelines outlined by our Public Health Officials in an effort to keep ourselves and others safe. Visit Public Health Ontario and the Public Health Agency of Canada regularly to stay abreast of any updates and changes.

    We will continue to send these COVID-19 updates and will be updating our website as needed to keep all of our clients well-informed.
