SafetyDriven and BCTA continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation very closely and remains in frequent contact with key government agencies, including the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure, CBP, and CBSA.

In an effort to contain and reduce the potential spread COVID-19 SafetyDriven has implemented the following procedures.

Meetings & Day-to-Day

  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting routines for high-touch surfaces (doorknobs, light switches, counters, etc.).
  • Reviewed social distancing, hand-washing and other hygiene best practices with staff, as well as providing increased access to hand-sanitation stations and dispensers.
  • Temporarily suspended non-essential business travel.
  • Temporarily suspended off site/on site meetings with external clients, parties, vendors. All business meetings/communication will be conducted over web-conference calls, telephone, email, etc.
  • Implemented policies for employees to work remotely when required due to possible exposure, suspected symptoms, or government regulations.

Events

We are committed to practising social distancing and group gathering guidelines. Please check the events calendar for updates and rescheduled events, courses and workshops.

Careers

Recruitment is being put on hold until further notice. We are still committed to staffing posted positions and reviewing resumes. Short-listed candidates will be contacted when we know more.

In response to COVID-19, motor carriers should take the following measures:

  • Implement a company-wide, self-distancing policy for all employees requiring a minimum physical distance of a minimum of 2 meters between individuals. This includes avoiding standard greetings that require physical contact such as shaking hands.
  • Increase regularly scheduled cleaning with a disinfecting agent such as antimicrobial disposable wipes or a bleach solution, particularly inside each power unit and shared spaces.
  • Request that all drivers, as part of their post-trip inspection, wipe down all shared spaces with a disinfecting agent. This includes the steering wheel, dashboard, radio/telematics devices, door handles, gear shift, etc.
  • Where feasible, provide drivers with a suitable power unit and sufficient supplies (e.g., food, water, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.) to enable self-isolation during a trip.
  • Require drivers to thoroughly wash their hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer immediately after fueling or visiting a public establishment.
  • Request that all drivers avoid any unnecessary public establishments or mass gatherings, unless approved by dispatch.
  • Request that all drivers, after returning to their home terminal from outside BC (e.g., the United States or elsewhere in Canada), to self-isolate on their days off.
  • Require drivers to self-declare to dispatch and to 811 or their health care practitioner, if they have come in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 and self-isolate if instructed by a health practitioner.
  • Require drivers, if they exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, dry cough, etc.) to call 811 or their health practitioner, and self-isolate for up to 14 days pending test results and unless instructed otherwise by a health practitioner.
