Objective: To do our best in preventing the spread of COVID-19 within the workplace, and to help protect our Employees, Customers and Visitors.
Fidelity PAC Metals Ltd has implemented the following precautionary measures:

b) The telephone call-forwarding functionality has been tested and confirmed to be properly functioning, for each office employee.
a) Office staff have been 100% segregated from warehouse staff, which includes having no shared-areas whatsoever (separate entrance ways, washrooms, and lunch rooms).
b) 2 of our warehouse members have been moved to the office where they will remain separated from the other warehouse members. Note: should any of the other warehouse staff contract the virus, the 2 separated warehouse members will be ready to move into the warehouse.

c) Office Cleaners will utilize the office entry, and will wear masks and gloves while in our office. They will not enter the warehouse (warehouse cleaning will be done by the warehouse staff).
