Over the past 20 months, Toromont has employed many protocols to help keep our employees, our customers and our communities as safe as possible throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The Health and Safety team prepares Rapid Test Kits for shipment across the TIL Enterprise. Multiple varieties (shown below) have been purchased to support our teams.

One of the recent measures implemented is our Rapid Testing program. This program was introduced in stages late in 2021, with a specific focus on non-vaccinated essential workers. By asking employees to disclose vaccination status, we were able to identify potentially high-risk areas for the deployment of rapid test kits.

By early February, all branches across the Toromont enterprise will have been supplied with Rapid Test kits to ensure that asymptomatic non-vaccinated and non-disclosed workers are screened prior to entry to the workplace – this creates an additional layer of safety to keep all employees as safe as possible. 

This measure does not replace protocols in place for all employees including daily screening, masking, or physical distancing. As we’ve learned over the balance of this pandemic, there is no magic bullet in safety – rather there are many strategies we need to take in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Additional kits are available as needed in circumstances where any employee, independent of vaccination status, experiences symptoms. With the recent increase in COVID-19 infection rates and hospitalizations, PCR testing through public health has been difficult to access, so Toromont has secured and made available Rapid Test kits in our branches providing our employees with an additional layer of protection.  In addition to the Rapid tests, KN95 masks have also been deployed to high-risk areas to further minimize the spread of the virus. 

Working together, respecting protocols, and retaining our “Safety Starts with Me” mindset, we will continue to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our workplaces and our communities, and support the continuity of our operations.
