We are the only Canadian co-working company with this certification. All iQ Offices locations have completed the COVID-19 Safe Workplace Assessment from Get Ready Global , based on compliance of regulatory measures from Public Health Agency Canada (PHAC), Public Health Ontario (PHO), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) and the Provincial Ministry of Health.
Foundations of Safety
All spaces and practices at iQ Offices reflect our COVID-19 safety protocols.
Anyone entering an iQ Offices location is provided with the opportunity to complete a self-screening questionnaire and pass through a touchless temperature screening station. We have also added the Rapid Antigen Testing Program to our overall IPAC (Infection Prevention and Control) Program to confirm our staff are not Asymptomatic Shedders and do not have COVID-19. The Government sponsored Rapid Antigen Testing is easy to do and results are known within 15 minutes.
All shared spaces and high-contact zones are cleaned by trained professionals every two hours. Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and other precautions are available throughout all spaces.
From replacing shared snack containers with individually packaged portions, to encouraging personal reusable mugs and water bottles and replacing onsite mugs and glasses with recyclable ones, we’ve adapted many of our shared amenities. Most importantly to many Members, Co-working Cocktails will be offered by bar-cart, so you can still enjoy a beverage on days designated for Co-working Cocktails.
The integration of Poppy Pathogen Monitoring System is exclusive to iQ Offices. This technology is the world’s only pathogen sensing and detection network that continuously monitors the air for the COVID-19 virus and all other known pathogens. Your safety and security onsite remains our greatest priority.
Accurate information and advice have never matteredmore, which is why we are proud to be exclusive partners with Get Ready Global to ensure we have the latest and most relevant safety information for our Members.
Members can ask iQ Offices Location Staff for a complimentary workplace consultation: a personalized back-towork safety plan for your business.
