COVID-19 Guidance and Inspections
The COVID-19 pandemic is causing enormous disruption and challenges for businesses. Government COVID expectations and requirements have changed on several occasions, causing uncertainly for businesses who are struggling to remain operational while protecting their staff and others.
Wilco Health and Safety assists businesses and organizations in navigating COVID requirements and provides assistance in determining COVID control methods to protect employees, clients, visitors and others. Our COVID services include:
There’s a lot that goes into the physical work environment, and how we conduct our work, that protects workers and others from COVID. We’ll inspect your facility and operations for possible COVID concerns and provide a report with recommendations. Contact us to schedule an inspection, it typically only takes a few hours.
COVID requirements can get complicated for employers - physical requirements, screening, testing, dealing with illnesses, training, isolation, quarantine etc. Outlining all of this in a COVID protocols document will be helpful in many ways including consistent application of COVID controls, and act as a means of training for workers in the employer’s COVID plan. Contact us and we’ll review your operations, prepare COVID protocols and provide guidance with implementation.
