Self-Monitoring and Symptoms
All staff members must self-monitor for COVID-19 related symptoms, remain isolated at home and take time off work if necessary. Seek COVID-19 testing as soon as possible. Communicate status to Service Manager and/or HR.
If the onset of symptoms occurs while at work the symptomatic individual should be tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible and then enter isolation until results have been confirmed. Upon receipt of testing results the attending doctor or health professional should provide instruction based on risk factors. Any test results and instructions are immediately communicated to the Service Manager.
If a negative test result is achieved, we refrain from contacting others to the greatest extent possible, which means not coming to work, until symptoms are gone. Cold and flu symptoms even if not COVID related will cause disruption to colleagues, customers and other work contacts in these cautionary environments. A Haakon employee demonstrating symptoms could also cause damage to our reputation and limit our ability to service customer sites if we are seen to not be diligent about this matter.
If a Haakon employee has had contact in the past 14 days with someone who has developed symptoms, they are asked to be extra vigilant in self-monitoring and taking extra precautions to avoid contact with others or spread the virus on surfaces.
If a Haakon employee has had contact in the past 14 days with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, even if they are symptom free, testing should be sought as soon as possible. Health professional instructions should be followed and communicated to the Service Manager at this time.
All staff should endeavor to maintain a minimum 2m distance between themselves and anyone else whenever practicable.
In the event that a 2m distance cannot be maintained a face mask should be worn by all parties.
All field staff should maintain a supply of:
- Face mask
- Hand Sanitizer
- Sanitizing Spray for surfaces
All field staff must wear a face mask when entering an occupied customer site and must wash or sanitize their hands before entering, after leaving or when moving between distinct areas of a customer site.
All field staff must read and adhere to any site specific or customer specific COVID-19 policy and abide by the more stringent.
All field staff must respond to each site that they are visiting and when applicable, fill out contact tracing forms and surveys.
Haakon permits the development of “bubbles” within our teams when it is reasonable and practical to do so. This is only permitted if all parties:
- Are fully informed of the exposure risk of the other member(s) in the proposed bubble: their recent contacts and exposures.
- Expressly agree to enter into the proposed bubble environment.
- No bubble may involve more than 5 people in a 7 day period.
- Nobody may enter multiple bubbles in a 7 day period.
- Nobody should enter a bubble if combined with their personal situation they would exceeds the recommended contact levels by the BCCDC.
- Nobody may enter a bubble with another technician if they have been symptomatic in the past 7 days or if they have had any contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the past 14 days.
