Husky is responding to the evolving COVID-19 situation, with safety and health protection plans in place that incorporate medical advice for all its sites. Our priority is the health and safety of our workforce, their families and the community.
We have taken steps to protect our employees and contractors, whether working in the office or in the field. This includes closely following the advice and direction of health authorities and governments, as well as our medical experts.
Those who can work from home are, and we've implemented precautionary measures at our field locations. These vary depending on the requirements of the site, however all locations:
- Restrict non-essential personnel and visitors
- Ensure allowed visitors complete a health check
- Undergo more frequent and deeper cleaning of common areas and common touch points
- Stagger breaks and lunch times to reduce the number of people in an area at one time
- Add more hand washing and sanitization stations
- Practice social distancing of 2-3 metres and good hygiene
We have taken additional steps at projects where there were larger construction or maintenance crews on-site, including suspending major construction activities at the West White Rose Project, suspending construction activities at the Superior Refinery rebuild and deferring a turnaround at the Lloydminster Upgrader.
Individuals approved to work on specific sites are not allowed on-site if they have flu-like symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days. They must also complete Husky's COVID-19 health declaration.
