HR provides support to our members through ongoing development of industry leading best people practices and policies. Collaboration through working groups to develop consistent practices and policies has been our approach – we work as a team.
Covid-19 Response Plan – April 2020
To ensure our teams have clear communication at this time and reassurance that they are working in one of the industries where standard practices afford them significant protection against Covid-19, some plants have expressed interest in working together to prepare a template of practices for their “Workplace – Covid-19 Response Plan”.
The Quality Team from each member’s facility joined a working group that developed protocols and practices to provide protection against Covid-19. The material the team created has been reviewed and approved by the PEI Chief Public Health Office, who worked in collaboration with the team during the development of the material. PEISPA Members have these COVID-19 practices in place and are working from a standard set of practices and material. Members of the PEIPSA can find the protocols and associated material below.
The working group continues to collaborate and share best practices.
