New online screening for employees working on campus

As part of the ongoing effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, British Columbia's Provincial Health Officer has ordered employers to complete daily active health screening for all employees entering a workplace in the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions. KPU is subject to this order.

Employees who are working on campus must complete KPU's online self-assessment form before starting their shifts. If for any reason you are unable to access the online tool, please call Security to confirm that you have met the requirements on this WorkSafe BC poster prior to beginning your shift.

All contractors working on campus will still be required to check-in with Security when they arrive on campus each day to confirm that they have met the requirements listed on this WorkSafe BC poster.

At this time, KPU continues to tightly limit the number of people working on campus in order to remain compliant with all public health orders and WorkSafe BC regulations.  Accordingly, the majority of our employees will continue to work from home for the foreseeable future.

All employees and contractors working on campus must complete a health check prior to starting their shift. Anyone coming for a quick visit to campus must do the same.

Employees who are working on campus must complete KPU's online self-assessment form before starting their shifts. If for any reason you are unable to access the online tool, please call Security to confirm that you have met the requirements on this WorkSafe BC poster prior to beginning your shift.

All contractors working on campus will still be required to check-in with Security when they arrive on campus each day to confirm that they have met the requirements listed on this WorkSafe BC poster.

If you have any of the symptoms or potential exposures listed on the poster, do not come to work. Please consider calling 8-1-1 or contacting your health-care provider for advice. Anyone who refuses to take part in the health check will not be allowed to enter the workplace.

It is mandatory to wear a non-medical mask in all indoor public spaces on our campuses, including hallways, corridors, washrooms, lounges, atria and study areas, the libraries and the Bookstore. There are exceptions if you are eating or cannot wear a mask for medical reasons.

Program and department safety plans address the need to wear masks in classrooms and office spaces.  Students and employees are to adhere the approved safety requirements when in those areas.

KPU asks that you wear a mask when you are outdoors on campus unless you can guarantee that you can stay at least six feet away from others at all times.
