Our Commitment to Assiniboia and Surrounding Communities
Golden South Wind LP (GSW LP) and Borea Construction are serious about working safely through the phases of the pandemic as the Golden South Wind Project (GSWP) continues construction activities. In April 2020, GSW LP worked with Borea Construction to implement site-specific measures above and beyond what was required by provincial and federal mandates. These measures included having a full-time medic on site; verifying the body temperature of every worker, visitor and delivery driver before accessing the site; making quarantine rooms available if isolation was required; and providing curbside pick-up, on site gas and diesel and laundry services to employees and subcontractors.
In June, as Saskatchewan entered Phase 3 of its reopening plan, GSW LP and Borea Construction reviewed and adjusted the on-site COVID-19 protocols for GSWP. The restriction prohibiting employees and workers from the Town of Assiniboia has been lifted but many existing measures have remained in place, including:
Travel and Self-Monitoring
All employees and workers will be required to self-monitor for 14 days after travelling to Saskatchewan from other provinces in accordance with the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. Employees will also self-isolate at the first sign of even mild symptoms as per Saskatchewan’s requirements.
COVID-19 Orientation Questionnaire
Anyone upon arriving on site must complete the COVID-19 Orientation Questionnaire, and each worker and employee will complete the Prevention Measures Questionnaire at the end of each shift.
A full-time medic is posted on site and will take the temperature of every person entering the site to ensure that no one with a fever is inadvertently allowed on site.
Workplace will follow and exceed best-practice hygiene practices, and vehicles and surfaces are regularly disinfected.
Physical Distancing and PPE
Requirements of mandatory face masks and social distancing (when possible) will be abided by the workers and employees.
We will continue to update our protocols and information as they becomes available. We are committed to maintaining a good relationship with the landowners, local contractors and businesses, and the community.
