Health & Safety Standards

Our business has followed WorkSafeBC guidelines and will decide the graduation dates between phases based on current government and health authority recommendations.

Cleaning Intensification

coLab has created cleaning procedures that our employees and members follow. 

We use health authority-recommended products that both clean and disinfect, and all sanitizing products are kept in easily accessible areas and will be available for use by all members.

Informational posters are mounted around the space containing information about cleaning procedures and instructions for employees and members.

Air Regeneration 

coLab has implemented several measures to increase the rate at which the indoor air is purified of contaminants, including increased airflow and HEPA Air Purifiers.

Access Control

coLab controls access to its physical space to allow for appropriate social distancing. 

Redistribution of Space

coLab has reorganized the physical office space in several ways to maintain physical distance between members.

All coLab Member’s are oriented on our Guidelines & Cleaning Procedures.

What Hasn’t Changed: Our Sense of Community

This is a challenging time for all of us. We recognize that these new measures may be an inconvenience and that some members may find the physical office space less useful or less efficient to navigate as a result.

But we’re doing these things for a very important reason: We care about our community. 

As we move forward into our new normal, we must remember to prioritize the well-being of the people around us. We must rely on each other to make the right choices, and we must each make the right choices for those who rely on us.

What Comes Next

These measures will remain in place for the foreseeable future — that is, until there is either a widely-available vaccine or a highly effective treatment for COVID-19.

We are committed to a gradual reopening and will follow recommendations of our Public Health Officer, and we will continually monitor and reassess the situation as things change. We will make adjustments to health and safety measures as needed.

And finally, this should go without saying, but:

  • If you’re sick – even with only mild symptoms — stay home.
  • If a member of your household is sick, stay home.
  • If you are immunocompromised or part of a high-risk group, stay home.

If you don’t think you can follow the guidelines, stay home.
