COVID-19 Safety Plan

By , On , In News

Updated Nov 25, 2020  


At Valid Manufacturing, the health, safety and well-being of our employees and customers is our top priority. During these challenging times, we are closely monitoring development of the COVID-19 pandemic in BC, and have taken precautionary actions to keep everyone safe. 

Protocols to reduce the risk of COVID-19 

 Employees are requested to conduct a Self-Assessment every morning before coming to work by using the Valid COVID Self-Assessment form (PHO order on Nov 19, 2020). 

 Employees are required to wear a mask whenever they cannot socially distance, and in any location, employees are in a shared space with other workers, including hallways (PHO order on Nov 19, 2020). 

 Employees and visitors are asked to maintain a safe distance of 2 meters from others wherever possible. 

 Where team work is required, Supervisors/Team Leads will develop cohort groups appropriate for their area to minimize multiple contacts. Where 2 meters social distance requirements are not possible employees will use supplied masks. 

 Employees are to limit their presence in break locations and meeting rooms to allow an appropriate distance of 2 meters. Occupancy limits are posted in each of our break location. 

 We have enhanced our cleaning for all common areas and surfaces. 

 Work-from-home protocol is in place for those who are able to do so. 

 Video conferencing and online meetings are recommended whenever possible. 


 Visitors are limited in the workplace for only those who have pre-arranged their visit with Valid employees. 

 All visitors must check in with the reception (Plant 1) to review and sign Valid COVID-19 Safety Plan, and to provide their contact information. Visitors have hand sanitizer available in the reception area, and they will wear a mask during their entire visit. 

Entering the workplace is prohibited from: 

 Anyone who has had symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 10 days. 

 Anyone directed by Public Health to self-isolate. 

 Anyone who has arrived from outside of Canada or who has had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case must self-isolate for 14 days and monitor for symptoms.
