Stricter COVID-19 measures and 3rd wave of infections
There has been a sharp recent increase in the numbers of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations recently which has led to the Government of Ontario enacting additional restrictions. They have also committed to increase fines and enforcement of the regulations put in place. Our regulations and policies have been updated to stay in pace with the Provincial measures. Additional enforcement will demand increased due diligence from all our consultants, contractors, workers and all other third parties involved. We want to be proactive in the protection of the health and safety of all our site personnel, management, all our families, and the community.
The Government has emphasized stricter enforcement and increased fines. Please communicate these announcements to your staff and ensure they are in total understanding of measures that need to be followed for compliance. We are hoping to always stay compliant and should except an increase in the amount of Ministry of Labour inspections and blitzes on our sites.
I have attached the updated COVID-19 regulations that need to be strictly followed on all our construction sites.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
