Reopening the construction industry: Webinar to outline required information and tools

Ontario Construction News staff writer

The League of Champions construction safety organization is hosting a Zoom webinar on Wednesday to address the issues and requirements as Ontario’s construction industry emerges from lockdown.

The group says “this presents a unique challenge” — “implementing the provincial government Chief Prevention Officer (CPO)’s guidelines and our own programs and best practices to protect our workers.

CPO Ron Kelusky will discuss the COVID-19 Guidelines  to set expectations for the operation of construction during the pandemic, and their application. He will also discuss the services provided to support contractors.

Craig Lesurf, president of the Gillam Group, and chair of the League of Champions, will present Gilliam’s program for operations during COVID-19. This will include a plan for breaching physical distancing.

As well, Steven Agla, director EHS for the Aecon Group, will present on Aecon’s screening technique for workers, and contact tracing, a plan to undertake a COVID-19 investigation.

“This presentation will support you and your firm  by being prepared to put an effective plan in place to reopen your sites and keep them safe and healthy,” the group says in a statement.

You can register for the 90-minute program, scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m., at this link.
