Safetek Emergency Vehicles and Profire Emergency Equipment (Safetek Profire) have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan to minimize the risk of passing on novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) at work and to help protect employees, customers, visitors and others from COVID-19. The Plan was developed with input from managers, supervisors and workers and identifies the control measures and steps to be taken to reduce the risks and help break the chain of transmission of the virus. The Plan follows the recommendations of our federal and provincial health authorities and will be continually reviewed and revised if necessary. The Plan has been shared with all employees.
Please see our measures implemented below. If your question is not answered please feel free to reach out to our team here.
