COVID-19

Prevention:

  • Wash hands frequently – for 20sec or more, front/back/between fingers/under nails with soap and water.

  • Avoid Touching your Eyes, Nose, and Mouth – These are access points for the virus to enter.

  • Cough or Sneeze into a flexed Elbow – This helps prevent the virus from becoming airborne and spreading, followed by more washing

  • Blowing your Nose – discard tissue into garbage with lid, wash hands

  • Maintain Social Distancing – in Canada 2 meter recommended

  • Avoid physical contact – i.e. handshakes

 

While there is much to discover about Covid 19, studies indicate that the virus can be infectious on surfaces for up to days, therefore;

  • Sanitize Machine and Tools after you are done using them with Spray Nine that is provided.

  • Do not share items without disinfecting them first (tools, phones, PPE, etc)

  • Wearing work gloves will help eliminate contact with parts and tools, but remember, they may become contaminated themselves. Treat them accordingly.

  • To help eliminate bringing contamination to work, employees will wash hands when entering the building at beginning of shift, before touching anything. Then proceed to locker room to prepare for the day.

  • To help eliminate taking any contamination home, employees must wash hands before leaving the building at end of shift, and not touch anything on the way out (doors will be propped open).

  • All touch surfaces will be disinfected once a day, exterior doorknobs, microwaves, fridges.

  • All touch surfaces to be disinfected 4 times a day, all handles in washrooms, coffee pot, time clock, etc. (based on frequency of being used).

  • All surfaces touched by customers every visit, before the next customer.

  • Parts dropped off will be disinfected with Dettol if pressure washing is not required.

 

Rubber Gloves – Can still spread the virus by getting on the gloves and touching your face. Not an effective preventative measure. Washing your hands frequently is still the best.

 

Dust Masks/Respirators – Not an effective preventative measure against contracting the virus. Only custom fitted N95 masks help prevent an infected person from spreading the virus. Even then, it’s not 100%.

 

Feeling Sick/ Onset of Symptoms:

  • Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover. Why? Avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more effectively and help protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses. Do the self assessment if you are feeling ill in any way. https://myhealth.alberta.ca/journey/covid-19/Pages/COVID-Self-Assessment.aspx

  • If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and tell your provider of any recent travel or contact with travelers. Why? Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also help to prevent possible spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
