Blue Heron's Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
Blue Heron continues to monitor the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19 closely. We are committed to ensuring the well-being of our clients, our staff and the community, while continuing to provide professional and exceptional service.
Our team continues to discuss the situation regularly, and adapt appropriately. Our commitment to Health and safety is one of our core strengths and as such, we have adjusted our practices and procedures to the current conditions by following the safety and prevention guidance published by government agencies.
The following are some of the key protection measures that we have implemented to date:
- Requiring staff to stay home if they feel sick.
- Encouraging staff to work from home to minimize contact amongst staff in the office. The majority of our staff have been enabled to work from home.
- Postponing any international travel and conducting business travel only if absolutely necessary.
- Implementing a 14-day home isolation if there is a reasonable risk an employee may have come into contact with someone infected with COVID-19.
- Assessing stock of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and supplies required to ensure protection of our staff and continuity of our operations.
- Adapting field monitoring procedures to ensure physical distancing and hygiene guidelines are met, including in vehicles. A maximum of 1 person per vehicle is permitted.
- Moving to on-line meetings where possible (with clients and internally).
- Increased cleaning/disinfecting of high traffic areas.
- Closing our offices in Sudbury and Timmins to public access.
- Postponement of all in-person training events or utilizing on-line solutions for delivery of training to our clients.
In addition, Blue Heron works with clients to implement project and site-specific measures appropriate to the potential risks of the work being conducted.
As this pandemic continues to unfold, we understand that these times can be difficult, but we will continue to work through this together with our clients and staff to keep everyone safe.
