Following the guidelines from WorkSafeBC and the B.C. Provincial Health Authority, we are taking steps to ensure a healthy and successful integration of employees in the workplace setting. As part of our COVID-19 Safety Plan, we are implementing the following protocols and procedures, which must be followed by all employees.
This COVID-19 Safety Plan will be amended as health and safety concerns are identified and remedied, or as further mandates are issued by the B.C. Provincial Health Officer. Any changes will be communicated to all team members as they occur.
COVID Safety Principles
DO NOT COME TO WORK IF SICK
It is vital that no one comes to work if they are feeling sick. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and contact Andrew or your supervisor. You can also contact the Health Link BC for further guidance regarding your symptoms or utilize the Health Link BC Self Assessment Tool.
Even if you only have a cold or flu, it is better to be cautious. You may be asked to remain at home until your symptoms pass, and you may be asked to get a Covid test.
Employees must maintain a minimum 2 meters (6 feet) separation at all times where possible. Follow the markings and signage in the studio and on set that have been established to assist in maintaining separation. Always be aware of your surroundings and move slowly around the workplace.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
All team members will wear a face covering (mask) while working indoors or outdoors. Personal Protective Equipment is available from your supervisor.
All team members will have access to disposable non-medical face masks, sanitizer, face shields and nitrile gloves. Please ensure that you follow the training and the posted information regarding proper usage and disposal for this PPE.
Hands must be washed with soap and water for 20 seconds. Wash hands:
- When you arrive at work
- Before and after going on a break
- Before and after eating
- Before and after using your cellular phone
- After using the washroom
- After handling materials that have come into contact with the public
- Before and after handling shared tools and equipment
- Before and after using masks or other personal protective equipment
For all production we work with, all team members will be Covid tested prior to the first day of work. Once initially tested, you will continue to test on a weekly basis for the duration of production. Testing takes place during work hours at a centralized location.
General Work Procedures
All team members will partake in COVID-19 Awareness training via the Safe Sets International website. Our employees also have taken the CBS Viacom training material for CBS production we work on, as well as the two E-learning training modules for productions created by Whitecap RSC and SIRIUSMEDx. These courses emphasize the points covered in employee training and offer specific techniques to reduce exposure.
On a daily basis, our team completes a health screening questionnaire. This will be done through the SiriusGo COVID-19 App or a google form when not working on set. We may complete the questionnaire portion of the app prior to arrival on site; however, upon check in, the Health Officer, Screening Attendant or Shift Supervisor will take the temperature of all staff which is then inputted into the App. At this point, we submit our screening for the day for clearance to work. When cleared we will be issued a wristband that will certify your wellness. New wristbands will be issued each day.
Those working at prep sets, the construction shop or another centralized working location will be given instruction about where to check in on a daily basis prior to starting work.
EXPOSURE LIMITING BEHAVIORS
We recommended that prior to start of work and during all shooting periods, team members maintain exposure limiting behaviors at all times within the workplace and outside of work, including rigorous hand washing and hygiene, maintaining social distancing protocols, wearing masks, monitoring for symptoms, etc. When feasible to create and maintain social bubbles during production. Please pay attention to and follow the Provincial Health Officer and and Health Canada guidelines as they are constantly being updated.
Cough or sneeze into your sleeve, not your hands. Avoid touching your face with your hands. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue and put your used tissue in a garbage can.
