Workplace One | Safety Policies | COVID-19

In light of the covid-19 pandemic, here are the ways we are ensuring our work centres are the safest place to work for our members. This is an evolving list that will be updated accordingly based on recommendations by the World Health Organization, provincial and federal governments, and other health resources. This list has been updated on March 17, 2021.

Physical Distancing

Based on recommendations from the World Health Organization we have placed signage indicating 6’ distances in all of our common-use spaces, such as kitchenettes and lounges. We have also re-arranged furniture with the safety of everyone in mind.

Mandatory Face Coverings

Based on information provided by the Ontario government, all members and guests are required to wear face coverings in all indoor spaces.

Hand Sanitizing

Hand sanitizing stations have been placed at entrances and exits of our spaces. Please apply hand sanitizer when entering and exiting.

Walking Directives

We have marked our spaces with directional arrows indicating the flow of foot traffic to avoid the potential of close contact with others.

Mandatory Sign-In

When any member or guest enters our space, we require them to sign-in with their name and time of arrival. Everyone will also need to fill-in a symptom screening form as mandated by the provincial government of Ontario.

Strict Guest Policy

Your Community Manager must be notified in advance of any guests arriving at your work centre. All guests must sign in with their name, their host, and the time of arrival.

Thermal Monitoring

No-touch thermal monitoring sensors are at each location to test all members and visitors for possible fever.

Dedicated Cleaning Porter

Along with our regular evening cleaning, we will have a Dedicated Cleaning Porter visit our spaces throughout the day to address high touchpoint areas and kitchens. There will also be disinfectant wipes available for everyone’s use.

Hand Washing

Hand soap is available in washrooms and kitchen sinks. It has been proven that hand washing is one of the simplest and most effective ways to avoid infection.
