COVID - CAPEI Office Announcement 19 March 26 -2020 8:30am

Dear colleagues and members,

CCA issued the following press release stressing the importance our industry is placing on the health and safety of its workers, their families and friends, and communities.


Canada’s construction industry is putting safety and health first

OTTAWA, March 25, 2020 – The health, safety and well-being of our workers, their families

and friends, and the communities we operate in is always the top priority of the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and its more than 20,000 member firms. This has never

been truer than it is right now.

From the construction and renovation of hospitals, to keeping roads safe, to bringing

power and clean water to homes, the construction sector builds communities and

delivers projects that are essential to Canadians’ quality of life and to the success

of our country.

The CCA and our provincial and municipal counterparts have been very active in

 monitoring the guidance and direction of public health and government authorities, and

 providing our members with ongoing information, resources and support to put in place

 stringent measures to protect their employees and help flatten the curve. These measures

 are extensive and include employee monitoring, new safety and hygiene procedures

 and checklists, social distancing, sanitizing stations, frequent sanitization of sites and

reduced personnel on sites.

The CCA’s position is that compliant sites should be open and those that cannot

 consistently comply with measures and guidelines of public health authorities

should shut down.

“The safety and health of employees, their families and the public is first and foremost.

We have been actively providing our members with the information, resources and

 support they need to ensure safe work environments. Compliant sites should be open

and those that cannot consistently comply with measures and guidelines of

public health authorities should shut down.”

– Mary Van Buren, President, Canadian Construction Association
