There’s a ton of information readily available to all businesses in both Ontario and Toronto specifically regarding how to responsibly manage your business during the COVID-19 crisis. So it is with no pleasure, but also no surprise, that a case study like this exists to highlight the errors of failing to heed the governmental advice.

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | September 28, 2020

There’s been two vastly different outcomes for every business during this time of global crisis; success from adaption or failure and closure. Some companies inherently have it easier in this department, with the office world and many other sectors easily able to migrate the bulwark of tasks online. But for restaurants, essential services and the retail sector, the need to evolve your business to suit the times is paramount. And those that have managed to synchronize themselves with the demand…

The Low Point for the Travel Industry

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | September 22, 2020

There’s very little that COVID-19 has left unchanged or unaffected during its rampage through 2020. Long the industry of luxury and opulence, travel is something that has notoriously come with a tremendous price tag. The high costs of airfare, hotels and other expenditures have left a gap in who can afford to embark on trips at all. However, now it’s those very airlines and hotels who are themselves struggling. An aversion to being close to one another, as well as general common sense, have…

The Perpetual Raincloud

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | September 07, 2020

Some days are permeated by a sense of dread that simply won’t leave you. This is sadly become the norm for many Canadians, as well as individuals globally when they face an average day at work. COVID-19 has spread fear far more quickly than it spreads the virus, and society has been crippled by the ensuing paranoia and anxiety that produced by trying to avoid the virus. As more and more businesses move towards opening, or relaxing restrictions in place, the worker must return to fill the roles…

There’s No Mild When it comes to COVID-19

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | September 03, 2020

Though it’s strange to think of COVID-19 as having anything “mild” attached to it, this can be the case. Some reports of coronavirus cases suggest that most are not severe or are “mild." However, the word “mild” may not accurately describe this group of cases; they may be more mild relative to the most severe cases requiring intensive care, but they may not be as moderate as the word implies. Mild cases generally are ones that do not require hospitalization. But scientifically, it’s…

Vaccines are a Global Effort

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | August 24, 2020

Despite the murky uncertainty surrounding the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s the responsibility of every nation to contribute what they can to the attempts at combating it. China may very well have had a hand early on in the creation or expedited transmission of the virus due to the Wuhan area and its seafood market. However, that isn’t stopping them from being near the forefront of vaccine research, an undertaking that Canada is working right there with them on.

Working From Home Isn’t Going Anywhere

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | August 07, 2020

While facing down the barrel of the transition from Stage 2 onto Stage 3 like the rest of the province, individuals in Toronto are wondering how long they will continue to work from home. Thousands of people across the province moved out of the offices and jobs in March when COVID-19 cases began spiking, but now more than four months later people are still working from their home offices. For some this has been a blessing, and for others not so much. But there seems to be very little change…

Workplace Cleaning is More Important Than Ever

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | July 29, 2020

As we draw into the 5th month of COVID-19, the “deep cleans” are becoming all the rage. Probably not the worst trend that could be sweeping a nation, but this is like all things a response to the growing concern about the disease and stopping it as best we can. National restaurants such as Jack Astor’s are deputizing sanitation chiefs to oversee the needed and constant scrubbing of window ledges, menus, railings, and high chairs. The gym chain Goodlife Fitness is boasting in advertisements…

Case Study: The Harboured Sports Grille

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | June 26, 2020

Safety is always a topic of conversation, but it needs to be more than a talk. It requires action and proactive vigilance to make sure that it’s enforced. Roughly five years ago there was a thriving sports bar on the Toronto waterfront area called The Harboured Sports Grille, and it is no longer open for business. After conducting several interviews with present and past employees, the Health and Safety consultant that was hired to conduct an evaluation calculated his conclusion on the state…

What does COVID-19 mean for Business

Category | Health and Safety    Posted by SafetyON | March 25, 2020

Owners and employees alike are facing a drastic shock to their quarters as March (and to a lesser extent February) have been some of the slowest in recent years. Every industry, from safety consulting and governmental agencies to restaurants and salons face a closure either self-imposed or mandated by the government. And the resulting slump in both earning potential and revenue has already been devastating for many small and medium sized businesses. For anywhere that’s able to stay open during…
