The lockdown during 2020 has dramatically changed how our industry is dealing with carrying out our services. It is tricky because people who are infected by the virus can still spread it because of the virus’s asymptomatic spread. Safetech’s services heavily relies on moving from place to place as our technicians collect samples from multiple locations. We do not have the luxury of working remotely 24/7 as many of us need to physically go to sites. According to the Ontario Government, our industry of environmental service is classified as an essential service, so we did not have to close when the Ontario Government declared lockdowns. We did not want to put our staff at risk as they continued working, so they were provided masks, reminded to upkeep basic hygiene, and encouraged to social distance.
