Reduce COVID-19 Risk with a Workplace Safety Plan

Property managers and business owners are focused on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting regular business operations and causing low building occupancy levels. But, don’t forget the importance of maintaining a consistent cadence of regular and preventative maintenance activities for safe building operations.

Having a workplace safety plan can provide business and building occupants comfort knowing their health and safety is your top priority.

LEARN PROPER SAFETY PROCEDURES TO REDUCE RISK AT YOUR BUSINESS

Reviewing and understanding Federal, Provincial, Municipal, and/or Health Canada guidelines for maintaining a healthy and safe work environment is a critical step to minimizing risk to your business. Proactively taking steps to create and maintain a clean and safe work environment demonstrates that you take the health and safety of your employees and occupants seriously.

Following these steps to produce a comprehensive workplace safety plan can reduce your COVID-19 risk and help you avoid other workplace safety issues resulting from the COVID-related complications of building shutdowns or reduced occupancy.

DEVELOP A COVID-19 WORKPLACE SAFETY PLAN

  • Inspect space and develop a plan to maintain social distancing requirements
  • Create a plan that allows for flexible work / staggered schedules and maintenance of remote work capabilities to limit building occupancy
  • Commit to monitoring and following public health guidelines
  • Implement and maintain safe, social distancing practices
  • Encourage frequent hand washing
  • Provide hand sanitizer stations
  • Develop a daily disinfection plan
  • Remind employees to stay home if they are sick

 

HAVE YOUR ENTIRE OFFICE CLEANED AND DECONTAMINATED

  • Decontaminate spaces, furnishings, and mechanical systems regularly or before employees return to the workplace
  • Deep clean and decontaminate if an employee, tenant or visitor becomes ill or tests positive for COVID-19

PLAN FOR MAINTAINANCE OF SAFE BUILDING OPERATIONS

Buildings with lower-than-usual occupancy levels can start exhibiting issues that can affect the health and safety of occupants, if not addressed.  Maintenance should continue, if at least on a reduced schedule, and building managers should:

  • Inspect for obvious signs of damage like broken windows or doors
  • Check for water leaks and check pipes for cracks or damage
  • Inspect for hazards (electrical, mechanical, structural, physical, etc.)

Two hidden risks you should consider are:

  1. Mould growth – with reduced occupancy and lower indoor heat loads, maintaining relative humidity levels through maintenance of building HVAC systems is critical to avoiding mould growth.
  2. Bacteria in water systems – lower water demands could lead to sitting and stagnant water, which could lead to the accumulation of bacteria in as little as 3-5 days. Operate and monitor all water systems on a regular basis to ensure safe hygiene. Ensure systems are flushed and cleaned before reopening.

 

TELL TEAM MEMBERS ABOUT YOUR SAFETY PLAN

Don’t assume your employees or tenants know what steps you’re taking to minimize risk — tell them! Communicating your plan will help provide some needed reassurance that their health and safety is your top priority.

KEEP YOUR WORKSPACE SAFE

Workplace safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a high priority for businesses. One of the best things you can do as a property manager or business owner is to implement a workplace safety plan. Planning for peace of mind is a wonderful thing.

To ensure your building is ready to reopen, schedule a consultation or reach out to your FIRST ONSITE Account Manager to discuss service options.

(MISSISSAUGA, November 23, 2020) – FIRST ONSITE , Canada’s leading independent disaster restoration services provider, has strengthened its presence in Alberta and Saskatchewan with the signing of an agreement to acquire Spectrum Restoration, a family run business since 2006.

Spectrum Restoration is a regional full-service commercial and residential restoration leader with experience managing commercial large loss projects, a focus on utilizing technology and an emphasis on customer service. Spectrum has approximately 40 employees across two locations: Lloydminster and Cold Lake, AB. It is headquartered in Lloydminster – a unique city that straddles the borders of Alberta and Saskatchewan and thus conveniently located to service commercial and residential customers in both provinces.

Spectrum Restoration has been operating for the past 14 years under the leadership of Greg and Travis Stieb. Travis Stieb, who has been instrumental in the growth and development of the commercial large loss business, will be taking on the role of Senior Project Manager, Complex Commercial Division. Rick Stephens, with an extensive background in operations management, will be assuming the role of Branch Manager for both the Lloydminster and Cold Lake locations.

“This acquisition represents an important expansion for FIRST ONSITE that closes a geographical service gap in the Prairies, allowing us to reach new customers and expand our coverage for our existing partners.” said Bill Moorman, SVP, Western Operations, FIRST ONSITE . “By adding Travis to our commercial loss team, we gain a very talented project manager with a reputation for doing what’s right for customers and employees. We see a strong alignment in values in many ways and believe he will be a great addition to FIRST ONSITE .”

“Spectrum Restoration complements FIRST ONSITE ’s business very nicely and fits in with our strategic focus on growing our commercial capabilities across the country,” said Dave Demos, CEO. “Spectrum is well known for its residential restoration services and its exceptional abilities to manage large loss commercial projects. Combined with the strength that FIRST ONSITE ’s corporate structure offers, we anticipate this acquisition will generate significant growth in the region.”

“FIRST ONSITE has been a trusted partner and we are thrilled at the opportunity to join forces with a large, sophisticated company that shares the same passion for large loss restoration” said Travis Stieb, Spectrum Restoration. “With the systems and infrastructure of a large corporation, not only will FIRST ONSITE provide support and the ability to scale up when large loss disasters hit, it will provide our employees with room for advancement, giving them more potential in their career paths.”

The deal is scheduled to close on December 1, 2020. Terms of the transaction, including purchase price, were not disclosed.
