A Call to the Construction Industry for N95 Masks
The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has expressed a desire to plan ahead for Saskatchewan’s battle with COVID-19. To improve the available supply of “N95” masks to assist with the treatment of COVID-19 patients, construction companies are being asked to help augment the supply of these masks. The SCSA knows how important it is for members to support front line healthcare workers.
If your organization has a supply of "N95" masks that could be made available to health care workers, please drop off donations at the RRHBA Administration Office 1801 MacKay Street, Regina, Saskatchewan from Monday to Friday 9:00am - 12:00pm. The RRHABA offices are closed to the public but donations of masks can be placed in the foyer area (between the front door and the door to the Office). The SCSA will provide donation drop-off locations in other communities when they become available.
As industry knows, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a last line of defense. The SCSA is offering a number of resources about COVID-19 prevention such as hand hygiene, cleaning practices, and identifying workers who are ill. SCSA Safety Advisors (Regina, Saskatoon) are also available by phone and email to provide advice, guidance to our members who need assistance with toolbox talks, safe job procedures and emergency planning.
