SAFETY IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY
The safety and well-being for our members of the National Construction Council (NCC) is our highest priority. With an ever-changing situation, we are committed to monitoring these changes and protocols as it pertains to the protection and well being of members and public.
We have established a 1-800-354-1812 Covid-19 Member Response Line to connect with your council for information on what you can do if you are impacted by Covid-19.
Also, please refer to this COVID-19 Scenarios Grid to help direct members to benefits and information depending on your situation.
We support the guidelines and recommendations from the Canadian Government and Health Canada as well as local health authorities in the areas our members work.
We urge members to be diligent about these protocols set and mandated by these governing bodies including:
- Performing work with social distancing where possible. If you feel this is not possible, please call your Site Rep for clarification and direction.
- Be diligent about personal hygiene (Hand washing and for 20 seconds minimum, use of sanitizer, no handshakes, and working and breaking with 2 meters between coworkers.
- Working with our contractors to set site specific protocols by reducing employee populations via staggered breaks and lunch schedules, increased sanitization of lunch and break rooms or elimination of them altogether and ensuring social distancing. If you feel this is not happening or have concerns, please call your Site Rep for clarification and direction.
As our members safety is our continued priority, we will continue to monitor our safety measures and standards throughout our jobsites, ensuring the wellbeing of our members. The NCC will continue to follow guidelines set by government authorities and act responsibly to help flatten the curve and contain the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
