Bruce Power is joining companies across the country in support of The POST Promise, an initiative endorsed by the Government of Canada that’s focused on creating a collective solution to help Canadians safely begin their journey back into the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The POST Promise is a business-led initiative that involves a voluntary training and education program. It is being used by companies to build the confidence of employees and customers in knowing that proper health and safety measures are being followed in workplaces and public spaces. The program is focused on five key strategies aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19:
· Maintaining physical distancing
· Staying home if unwell
· Respiratory etiquette, including wearing a mask when recommended
· Cleaning and disinfecting work spaces
· Washing and sanitizing hands
“As a company that’s committed to a Safety First environment for all of our workers every day, we’re pleased to assist The POST Promise with sharing the message that Canadians need to take the necessary precautions to keep their families, friends and co-workers safe during this pandemic,” said Mike Rencheck, President and CEO, Bruce Power. “We encourage all Canadians to follow the guidelines that our public health officials and initiatives like The POST Promise are recommending.”
Bruce Power’s commitment to The POST Promise aligns with the other initiatives the company has undertaken to support the fight against COVID-19. Earlier this week, its Retooling and Economic Recovery Council opened an online portal to provide local municipalities, businesses and community organizations with access to affordable personal protective equipment (PPE).
Orders for PPE can now be placed at www.brucepower.com/strength-in-numbers.
The POST Promise, a national non-for-profit organization, is overseen by senior business leaders and public health experts from across the country. Visit the POST Promise website for more information and to learn how you and your business can also make a promise.
“Thank you to Bruce Power for supporting the POST Promise and helping to build awareness of this important initiative.” said Laura Hearn, President & Executive Director of POST Promise. “As a community leader, Bruce Power is not only demonstrating its deep commitment to keeping Canadians safe but also inspiring other businesses to do the same in this challenging time.”
