To our valued Customers, Suppliers & Partners:
The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented situation that we at Taggart Construction Limited are monitoring very closely. At this time, most of our construction operations remain active. We are taking heightened precautions as outlined by Ottawa Public Health to protect the health and safety of our employees, suppliers, subcontractors, and the support services that work on our job sites. Our goal is to continue to provide the quality of service that our clients expect, while ensuring our employees are healthy, safe, and have continued job security during these trying times.
To achieve this goal, we have implemented the following measures in response to the guidelines received from Ottawa Public Health. All site trailers, washrooms, and heavy equipment are cleaned daily, with all surfaces being regularly disinfected. Any employee who has recently travelled outside Canada, is exhibiting symptoms of illness, or is living with or caring for anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 must self-isolate for 14 days. Only essential personnel may be on our job sites, and all group meetings, interviews, and training sessions must be held by telephone or on a virtual platform. Physical distancing measures are also in place on all our job sites.
Our head office at 3187 Albion Road South is currently closed to the public, and we have asked that our staff work remotely if possible. Office staff will continue to provide our customers, suppliers, and field staff the support they require through modified workflow processes. If you need to visit any of our sites or offices at this time, appointments must be made in advance, and you must wear a mask, and you must complete the Daily Sign-In Questionnaire to facilitate contact tracing when necessary.
We appreciate your understanding, patience, and cooperation at this time. This situation is evolving rapidly, and we will be doing everything within our power to ensure the health and safety of our employees, while delivering the level of service our customers expect. This is also a time when we are especially focused on supporting our community, particularly through financial donations to local organizations including the Ottawa Food Bank and the Ottawa Mission. We also extend our thanks to our dedicated employees and assure them that their efforts and continued dedication are greatly appreciated during this uncertain time.
