As an emergency support provider to our clients when electrical services need to be safely restored or maintained, we would like to keep you informed about the increased measures we are taking regarding the novel Coronavirus and its disease, COVID-19.

Our goal continues to be to deliver the service and support that you depend on --while implementing preventative measures for your safety, and that of our employees and the public.

Magna considers the safety of its employees, contractors, neighbors, clients and the general public to be of primary importance. Safety is ingrained in our core values and is one we share with our clients, vendors and partners.

We want you to communicate that we have taken the following steps to address COVID-19:

  • Our leadership team is actively monitoring the situation across all regions and the potential impact on the public, our clients, employees, operations and projects. Magna's COVID-19 Advisory Committee has daily meetings to review developments, assess risks, update information to be distributed to stakeholders, update status reports and implement action plans.
  • Additionally, our Health and Safety team is continually monitoring the World Health Organization, CDC and Health Canada websites.

    • Frequent hand-washing
    • Social distancing
    • Working from home protocol implemented where possible
    • Self-isolation for employees with affected household members
  • We have asked any employee not feeling well to stay at home and consult with their doctor and advise us accordingly
  • Consistent with government and health authority guidelines, we are instituting the following travel policies:

  • While we will normally welcome our clients into our office, please note that we have the technology available for online meetings. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you wish to take advantage of this.
  • We are communicating with our suppliers and sub-contractors that they must also comply with preventative measures similar to those mentioned above.

As always, we appreciate your trust and partnership as we continue to monitor this situation and adjust our policies accordingly.
