Message from Kuntz Electroplating Inc. (KEI) about COVID-19
Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, several measures have been put in place at KEI to ensure the Health, Safety and Wellness of employees. These measures have been continuously evaluated in order to ensure that we are staying up to date with recommendations from Health authorities. We have also looked to other industry leaders to determine best practices for returning employees to work, and ensuring we can do so safely. Since the temporary closure that was implemented on March 27th, 2020:
- A deep clean was done which involved cleaning and disinfecting the entire plant; increased cleaning at regular intervals
- A Covid-19 Response Team was created to review our workplace and implement an action plan to increase the preventative measures in place to help reduce the possible spread of the virus.
- Department Managers were consulted for department specific measures.
- All actions were then reviewed by members of the Joint Health and Safety Committee and Employee Advisory Committee.
Health Authorities include: The World Health Organization (WHO), Health Canada, Ontario Ministry of Health, the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Waterloo Region Public Health and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Our response plan can be broken down into the following five areas:
- Increased Cleaning
- Increased PPE and Supplies
- Social/Physical Distancing Measures
- Healthy Workforce Processes (Daily Screening, Rapid Testing)
- Communication, Education and Evaluating Effectiveness
