Canadian contractor SNC-Lavalin group has provided a company update on the measures it has undertaken as part of a “business resilience program” due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Ian Edwards, President and CEO, SNC-Lavalin, said, “From the onset, SNC-Lavalin has monitored the evolving COVID-19 pandemic closely and followed the guidelines issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as those from home country governments. A robust business resilience program and a dedicated Executive-level global crisis management team and regional counterparts have been activated.
“We are taking appropriate action to protect our staff and business operations by following the latest health and safety measures. In addition to following WHO best practises on personal hygiene throughout the organisation and implementing the most up-to-date travel restrictions, the company is also leveraging its digital communication tools and technology to enable its global workforce to work remotely.
“Although the situation around the world is uncertain, I want to reassure our clients and stakeholders that as a client-facing business we are doing our utmost to ensure that performance and supply chain disruptions are minimised during this challenging time.”
