COVID-19 is a global pandemic with significant impact on Generation Solar operations. We have created a response plan to identify the steps we will take to ensure safety of staff and clients as business resumes. This plan is summarized here.
Projects relating to safety and projects under way prior to the provincial state of emergency will be given priority over new installation projects. Projects providing backup power for essential loads will be given priority over new generation projects.
Sites where we do not need to enter a dwelling will be assigned a preliminary risk category of Low Risk and work will proceed per the standard protective measures identified in our Response Plan.
Any known risk factors, as identified by clients and based on the provincial COVID-19 online self-assessment form, will result in an At Risk categorization.
At Risks sites will have a site-specific risk management plan to ensure that risk is eliminated or reasonably mitigated. Where this is not possible the project will be deferred until such time as risk can be adequately controlled.
Our COVID-19 response plan will be available to all stakeholders.
Employee schedules will be tracked to ensure traceability.
The plan is a living document and will be updated as needed and conditions evolve.
A variety of standard and elevated measures will be put into place to ensure safety including
- Personal protective and hygiene measures;
- Physical distancing;
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing;
- Appropriate scheduling of staff and shifts to reduce group sizes; and
- Provision of PPE and sanitizing supplies as needed.
Risk Management Plans
Where indicated, site specific risk management plans will be put into place. Clients will be involved in the generation of these plans and, of course, have the opportunity to refuse access if a suitable plan cannot be found.
We are confident that with a good plan in place work can proceed. The safety of all our stakeholders is of primary importance and we welcome your feedback on our plan.
