This situation is ever evolving and requires quick action, confidence, and care so we can get through this together and do our part to control the spread of this virus in the shortest time possible.
We have two focused priorities – safety and continuation of service.
Here is a summary of what is happening now:
We are monitoring trusted sites (World Health Organization, Health Canada, and Centre of Disease Control, among others) throughout the day to follow and share their recommendations with staff. We are building a data information site to monitor local outbreaks so we can act quickly, using evidence-based, informed decisions.
No staff are travelling internationally for business. Anyone returning from international travel (business or personal) or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms (regardless of travel or not) are following the 14-day self-quarantine procedures dictated by Health Canada. Staff cannot travel within Canada (or in the US). We apologize if these travel restrictions have caused meetings to be postponed or cancelled, but we are confident our teams have the tools to continue working with you via teleconference and video platforms (e.g., Skype, Teams, or your preferred provider).
Staff must follow COVID-19 hygiene best practices regardless if they are working in the office or in the field with you. This includes thorough hand washing and sanitizing, social distancing (no handshakes), and staying home when there is any sign of illness. Offices and vehicles are sanitized in addition to regular cleaning. On project sites including Park Paving facilities, we will meet additional requirements that you may have to ensure the health and safety of all project personnel. Park Paving Ltd. attendance at any external industry event or conference (local or international) is cancelled.
A remote work program is in full swing. For now, offices and facilities are still in operation during regular business hours. We will adjust daily depending on public health announcements and local situations. All meetings are now to be completed via teleconference and video platforms (e.g., Skype, Teams), and we are limiting client interaction where appropriate.
This pandemic is unprecedented for sure, but we are confident we have the systems in place to see these challenges through and continue working with you.
Your Park Paving Ltd. contact will provide you with additional pertinent updates as they arise.
