Staying safe in 2021

Whether you are at work or working from home, as we begin the new year in a continued lockdown with COVID-19 cases on the rise, it’s vital that we take the necessary precautions to protect ourselves, our co-workers and our family members from the virus.

By working together, and adhering to recommended control measures, we’ll ensure that we’re staying well and preventing the spread of the virus.

We’re steadfastly committed to a safe and healthy workplace for our people, and a safe service for the public we serve. Safety-Before-Production is a standard that we can all stand behind while we work together to continuously strive for additional resiliency and improvements in the workplace.

Please remember to self-monitor for symptoms at all times. Stay home if you’re not feeling well. And if you exhibit symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (cough, fever, shortness of breath) or were in close contact with someone who has tested positive, contact Occupational Health at 416-393-4572 or OHEW@ttc.ca to be connected with a Disability Management Specialist.

Emotional wellness is equally important. For anyone feeling anxious or alone, confidential support through the Employee and Family Assistance Program is available 24/7 at workhealthlife.com or by calling 1-800-572-0039.

If you have any questions related to your personal health, please contact your family doctor or Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000. Toronto Public Health also has a coronavirus hotline that provides the public with a place to get information, ask questions about COVID-19 or connect with a health professional at 416-338-7600.

We ended 2020 with back-to-back Board meetings that addressed a number of important issues as well as our 2021 budgets. Highlights from those meetings are attached below in case you didn’t have an opportunity to read them before the holidays.
