Operating procedures

Our master resource 'Leading Through Change' supports your Managers, Supervisors, and other workplace leaders

This guide covers how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or other outbreaks. It also helps ensure compliance under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) and associated regulations, along with public health directives issued by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. 

The guide focuses on: site operations, site screening programs, employee training, health and wellness, and facility signage.

Employees also need reassurance in times of change; the guide includes a framework which outlines how you can build confidence in your company's efforts and answer questions about the changes being implemented.

Hazard assessment

Our on-site hazard assessment identifies hazards, assesses risks, and develops controls based on your specific workplace situations. Due to the pandemic, the focus is on virulent communicable disease protocols, infection prevention and industrial hygiene practices.

During the hazard assessment, we review all of your operations to identify and solve workplace hazards that put employees at risk. Our Med-I-Well Coaches conduct the on-site assessment then provide recommendations to protect employees from infection and keep your business healthy, safe, and productive.

Return readiness

COVID-19 has created challenges for employees and their families. Our Return to Work Readiness provides support for employees to safely return to the workplace. 

If any of your team members have been working remotely or have been off for health or personal reasons, this program can help reintegrate your workplace in a phased approach that eases this transition for everyone. 

Our Med-I-Well Coaches provide each employee with a self-assessment which determines their physical, mental, health and workplace readiness to return to work safely. We then analyse the data and provide a report to your management team with recommendations to help you establish the best plan of action, ensuring the health and safe return of your workforce.

Employee education

It’s important that all employees understand what they need to do to ensure your team and our community stays safe and prevents the spread of infection. The Med-I-Well team can develop custom training plans that fit your workplace, with the goal of making sure your employees understand what’s necessary. 

Our training packages can be tailored to any audience, including leadership teams, cleaning staff, Joint Health and Safety Committee members, and employees within all tiers of the company structure.

Coaching services

Your team members’ lives have changed due to the pandemic. Some have childcare concerns, while others have elderly parents or high risk family members to worry about. Some are more fearful than others about contracting the virus. To respond to these evolving needs, it’s important to offer support and coaching for employees and their families to improve and maintain their mental and physical health and well-being.

For clients with employees working from home, we host virtual stretching and mobility classes, workout sessions with varying degrees of difficulty and live cooking classes. We also conduct one-on-one coaching through phone or video conferencing to help your employees with their individual needs. Our online ergonomic assessments can also help your team set up healthy and productive home office spaces.

For clients with employees back in the workplace, our Coaches have the necessary personal protective equipment and SOPs to provide on-site services such as group coaching, group-based initiatives and biometric screenings. Establishing an on-site physical presence helps employees build confidence in the workplace and provides an outlet for them to discuss concerns and needs during these changing times.
