Employees at Louisiana Pacific in Golden were informed that from 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 9, only employees with the vaccine will be allowed on-site due to the Admissions Health order.
All employees, contractors or visitors must show a vaccination card by September 19 to visit the site. This will only affect the Golden Site.
According to LP, the company received a verbal notification from the Admissions Health Authority (IHA) that it would issue a stop work order today for all LP Golden employees who have not provided proof of vaccination against Covid 19. What is it.
A formal notification was issued this afternoon, September 9.
Under IHA regulations, businesses with one or more active COVID-19 cases in staff may only work with vaccinated staff for up to 10 days after the last day, while CoVID 19 positive individuals worked, if IHA deems it necessary.
“The IHA’s order only allows us to work with our own vaccinated employees,” said Brianna Strasell, LP’s director of corporate communications.
When the IHA allows them to return to our facility after the 10-day ban expires, we look forward to the return of our other employees.
The aim is to prevent further positive cases at the mill, as “a large number of sent employees have tested positive for COVID.”
LP clarified that only 2% of its staff have had a positive experience in the last two weeks.
As more information emerges, a run plan will be drawn up and employees will be updated.
LPs do not need to vaccinate employees. LP has a 50-page Covid 19 Employee Guideline that includes several security protocols.
“At LP, our top priority – now and forever – is the health and safety of our employees,” Straisal said.
“The guidelines and rules that health and government officials have developed in response to the COVID-19 epidemic are taking the necessary steps to prevent and reduce transmission among LP employees. Our goal is to maintain a healthy work environment. While ensuring the integrity of our business operations.
