Covid-19 Safety Protocol
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and have an impact on all of us, we want to ensure we are doing our part to keep our customers and staff members safe, and to minimize the risk of any possible transmission in the communities where we live and work.
Woodgrove Chrysler is committed to the health and safety of our employees and customers. We have made significant changes to the way we do business in order to keep our workplace safe during the pandemic. Here is our safety plan that will be updated from time to time as necessary depending on the current recommendations and directives of the Provinicial Health Officer of BC as well as Worksafe BC.
– Our Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee will continue to work together, along with other employees and directives from the Provincial Health Officer and Worksafe BC, to ensure we continue to assess all potential risks in our workplace
– Communication Plan : Worksafe posters have been hung in prominent locations throughout the workplace in order to communicate safety protocols and measures with employees and customers.
– All entry doors have reminders that masks must be worn at all times in common areas of the workplace as well as reminders not to enter the workplace if exhibiting any covid-19-like symptoms, have travelled outside Canada within the last 14 days, or have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for Covid – 19.

– High touch areas like door handles and light switches are cleaned and sanitized twice daily and nightly janitorial services have been stepped up to include enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures.
– Keys, steering wheel and other touch points of all customer vehicles are cleaned and sanitized prior to being worked on in the service department, as well as being cleaned and sanitized before being returned to our customers.
