Despite COVID-19’s crippling effects across so many office spaces in Canada, Ontario manufacturing plants, and society as a whole, Essential Staffing has been able to withstand the tribulation of the Novel Coronavirus to continue to safely service our current customers and new clients who are in extra need of support during these trying times.
In times like these safety needs to be of the utmost importance. Creating a safe place for our staff in the office as well as the employees who are in your workplace is our main priority.
Back in March as Canada shut down and businesses across the country closed everyone had hopes that looking back on the lock down the world would see it as an unnecessary over exaggeration. However, as time has gone on and understanding of the virus has developed it is clear that the lockdown was essential when it happened. We as a country had little understanding, little knowledge and no extra PPE equipment to help keep our communities safe. The ability to protect ourselves and our loved ones against the unknown in the early stages was minimal, however that is no longer the case.
There was a time to be in self isolation. There was a time to be concerned and even a little nervous as we faced this unknown adversary. This time is no longer. Now it is time to put into action the safety measures that have been approved by Health Care Ontario and work together to rebuild the economy and regain the ground that was lost.
Prevention Prevention Prevention!!!
Both in our offices and in the placement of employees we have taken caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- COVID-19 Screening before entry of any office
- Temperature check at every entry point
- Tracking and documenting every office visitor in-case of positive testing
- Set up physically distanced work stations
- Mandated cleaning on each touch point in office every day
- Weekly deep cleaning of each office
Together we can overcome the challenges of COVID-19. It takes us all banding together and accepting a level of personal responsibility to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbors. We are doing our part and we thank you for doing everything you can too. Stay safe and prevent the spread of Covid – 19.
