8/31/2021 Webinar: Navigating the Challenges of Employee Vaccinations

 

Challenging times call for creative solutions. Commercial customers are demanding that only vaccinated employees can enter their facilities. You cannot operate your routes when unvaccinated employees are out sick due to Covid-19. NPMA assembled a panel of industry leaders and HR experts to provide some insights on what measures are being taken to navigate these unique issues. Hear candid feedback from pest control company owners on what is working to encourage a vaccinated workplace and what is not. During these challenging times we need to work together to help our industry continue to succeed and prosper.

Thank you to our panelists for their participation:

  • Bobby Jenkins, President, ABC Home and Commercial Services
  • Kylie Luff, Senior Vice President and Managing Partner, Seay Management Consultants
  • John Myers, President and CEO, Rentokil NA
  • Ross Treleven, President, Sprague Pest Solutions

Vaccine Update for Canadian Pest Management Professionals

Vaccines are widely available in Canada, and the government has indicated it will begin mandating vaccines for specific sectors. Federal employees will be required to show proof of vaccination, although the date of implementation is unclear. It is also expected that vaccinations will be required in the federally regulated transportation sector—employees of and passengers on airlines, rail, and cruise ships— although the date of implementation is unclear. Those who are unable to be vaccinated (which the government has determined is different than those who choose not be vaccinated) will likely be offered the option of  additional testing.
