As an essential service that provides business communication services to companies across BC and Alberta, we have been vigilant in working through this pandemic.
Our goal has been to ensure “business as usual” can be maintained as best as possible for those who have had to begun managing their company remotely. Or, for other essential businesses still operating within a professional building setting, we have also been assisting them with their changing needs – both with upgrades and downgrades as budgets allow.
Public Health Orders & Essential Business Communications
Public Health Orders were updated January 8th, and issued a Workplace Safety order that includes a number of requirements for all employers, such as…
- Employers must review their COVID-19 Safety Plan to ensure that the plan adequately protects workers from the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace and is consistent with WorkSafeBC requirements. Our Reviewing and updating your COVID-19 safety plan: A guide for employers resource may be helpful for employers in reviewing their plans.
- Employers must ensure that workers are prohibited from entering the workplace if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or have had a potential exposure through a health check.
- Employers must encourage workers to work from their private residence wherever possible, unless there is a preference on the part of the worker or the employer for the worker to work at the workplace.
- COVID-19 Safety Plans must include measures to prevent workers from congregating or crowding in indoor common areas, such as elevators, lobbies, hallways, stairwells, corridors, bathrooms, meeting rooms, break rooms, and kitchens.
These are just some of the PHO we are staying on top of during this pandemic, ensuring safety is not an added concern while we help with your communication needs.
With over 5-decades years of combined experience, we are proud of the service we have offered our community here in BC, and our neighbours in AB. Our fundamental drive is to help our customers feel secure, while also assisting in their success.
