The health and safety of our workforce, their families and communities is Trans Mountain’s first priority in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We have been working diligently to ensure adherence to all advice and direction from government and health officials, and maintain the uninterrupted and safe operation of the Trans Mountain pipeline system.

We have implemented a wide range of COVID-19 safety protocols throughout our operations, from our offices and control centres to our facilities and maintenance work in the field.

We are promoting expectations surrounding personal hygiene, including hand washing and sanitation stations.

We have implemented a work from home approach wherever possible.

For the workers carrying out essential work in our facilities and in the field, we have a policy in place to stay home and self-report if they feel sick or have any symptoms. Our employees are encouraged to self-isolate if they are feeling ill, and they do not need a doctor’s note for an absence when experiencing symptoms.

We are ensuring non-essential workforce members are not entering any of our worksites or offices.

We are following physical distancing guidelines between workers.

We are minimizing or eliminating in-person meetings and holding necessary meetings outside (for example, safety meetings), in smaller groups or via technology.

Where work cannot be safely undertaken without working in close proximity, a health and safety advisor and supervisor must be consulted for approval, and enhanced PPE and appropriate hygiene practices will be used to carry out the work. 

We continue to revisit and update our plans and protocol while monitoring the implementation daily. For a full list of our COVID measures, click here.
