Notice regarding COVID-19
Bonney Construction Ltd recognizes that we have an important role to play in managing and controlling the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Bonney has been actively monitoring the growing impact of the virus and is implementing a plan to help lessen the spread of the virus and maintain the continued good health of all our stakeholders including our employees, contractors, clients and the broader communities in which we operate.
Every province in Canada has declared either a public health emergency or a state of emergency. With the exception of Quebec, residential construction is able to continue with enhanced health, safety and distancing measures, balancing the need to provide and maintain shelter, while supporting worker and public health.
The Canadian Home Builders Association has put together guidelines for residential home construction and renovation based on recommendations of Canada’s health agencies, including but not limited to:
- Anyone with symptoms or who have been exposed to the virus should not come to work and should alert their supervisor;
- Anyone who has been out of the province must self-quarantine for 14 days, whether or not they’re showing symptoms;
- All employees and contractors are to notify the Project Manager when they will be working at one of our job sites;
- Maintain safe social distancing of at least six feet from others including other workers, staff, clients at all times, and especially while work is being carried out;
- Travel to job sites in separate vehicles to maintain social distancing;
- Have only one person in a work area as much as possible while maintaining social distancing;
- Take breaks and lunches alone in a separate space or in their personal vehicle;
- Employees and contractors are if possible to wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer as required;
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and throw the tissue away;
- Use of masks are not required unless you are infected, in which case you should not be at work;
- Use of respirators are recommended during demolition, sanding, painting, and any dusty work;
- Don’t share personal protective equipment (PPE) and limit sharing of tools and equipment when possible;
- Wear gloves as often as possible;
- Limit touching your eyes, nose, and mouth and being especially careful of the same in a workplace;
- Keep work areas clean prior to starting work and upon completion, including doorknobs, countertops, taps, equipment, and vehicles;
- For residential renovations where homeowners are home, have clear space boundaries where workers do not enter, and have homeowners stay out of renovation areas even after hours.
In case of illness
- Employees and contractors are to follow protocols set by local and national health authorities and government agencies.
- If an employee, contractor or contractor employee has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 they must report their illness to the public health authorities.
Employees and contractors are to continue to monitor developments and stay informed by reviewing information from trusted sources, including Provincial Health Authorities, The Public Health Agency of Canada, and the World Health Organization, and follow their guidelines and directives.
