Workplace Safety

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government has begun the gradual reopening of our government buildings. We would like to welcome all of our returning staff. We hope you are enjoying your time back in the office. In the weeks leading up to today, our government has put in place new measures within our government buildings to ensure a safe and healthy work environment for our staff. Please note, all LMG buildings will remain closed to the public.

The LMG has made every effort to ensure a safe work environment for our staff. We are pleased to report that each building has been disinfected and deemed safe for the gradual return of LMG employees. Listuguj Health and Safety have inspected all LMG buildings and workstations. Cleaning products have also been checked to ensure that they can adequately fight against COVID-19. Listuguj Health and Safety have also implemented new measures such as maximum room capacity, social distancing, mandatory cough etiquette, and the washing of hands. These measures have been put in place to protect your health and safety, and must be followed at all times.

In addition to this, Listuguj Health and Safety in collaboration with Human Resources have provided training for facilities management staff to ensure thorough sanitation of LMG buildings; the Listuguj Community Health Services had also organized the cleaning of the air ducts within LMG buildings; and the Unified Command have made masks, hand sanitizer and mental health services available for staff. The Unified Command will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates through LMG Communications related to LMG’s Response to COVID-19.
