MARCH 20, 2020

To our Sterling Team and Community Partners

 

Safety:

The health and wellbeing of our Sterling community is what matters most as we all battle COVID-19. Our Pandemic Plan has been in operation since early February and our team has worked hard to protect us. We have been monitoring all the updates from the health unit, federal, provincial and local agencies for expert advice and direction.

Safe physical distancing within the workplace, internal electronic communication, alternate work schedules, work from home programs, restricted production, plus aggressive hand washing, sanitizing, and disinfecting protocols have been implemented to keep everyone safe. Only essential service personnel and mission critical service providers are allowed to enter.

All of our team have been instructed to exercise heightened awareness for safe physical distancing and social concern in their individual activities at work and at home. COVID-19 is a new world order that none of us have ever experienced and changing our behaviours is critical in defeating COVID-19.

                          Old habits must be changed to protect us all!

Service:

With the complex concerns around COVID-19 evolving hourly in our communities and around the world, it is clear that we must all do our part to protect and help. We continue to update our knowledge, actions, and reactions to keep our Sterling Team members safe and support our customers who are critical to keeping manufacturers and service providers. For a safe physically distanced interaction please visit us at www.sterling.ca where we can serve you from afar.

 

Hundreds of small and large businesses, health care providers, government agencies, food processors, medical supply producers, essential good manufacturers, government offices and communities rely on us to provide the products and services they need to continue operations in this uncertain time. We are taking all possible precautions to protect our team members as they work to serve the needs of the community and their co-workers.

 

We are proactively managing our supply of products to ensure we continue to have what is needed. As one would expect, this is not a time for “business as usual” and our exceptional team is proving that they are anything but “usual” as they step up to minimize the hardship in our communities.

Security:

To minimize the impact of this pandemic, we need to come together, be kind and caring, responsible, with each of us doing our part to keep each other safe and healthy.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone on our Sterling Team for your intelligent and cautious actions as we try to maintain the service levels required.

We will work with the local, provincial and federal agencies to help our team members deal with the economic hardship of COVID-19.

Sincerely

 

Bob Schram
