ACUREN COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS

As the transmission of the COVID-19 virus increases around the world and within our own communities, we want to make our customers aware that, in most jurisdictions, we fall within the essential services exception and we are able to perform the services customers require on their sites. As well we want to take a moment to update you on the measures we continue to implement to ensure business continuity and transmission reduction:

  • We continue to share regular communications with employees to ensure we are providing important news about the status of the virus and the actions taken by the company;
  • The Acuren COVID-19 email address continues to act as a valuable resource to which employees can send questions and concerns, and request other support related to COVID-19;
  • Our single point of contact continues to be a central resource to respond to issues related to the virus and associated company direction;
  • We have responded in real time to take appropriate measures in communities where we are informed of governmental restrictions that have a direct effect on our employees;

  • Where we have employees who test positive for the virus, we have implemented a protocol to ensure all potentially affected parties are notified and proper precautions taken.

Our primary concern is always employee and client safety. To this end, we will continue to add to, or modify, our preparedness program in reaction to this evolving situation.
