ATTENTION: ALL EMPLOYEES
RE: MANDATORY ENTRANCE POINTS AND DAILY SCREENING
THK St. Catharines has made it mandatory that all employees MUST enter through either:
• the Plant 1 North Gate Employee Entrance or
• the Plant 2 Security Entrance.
These are the only entry points for Plant 1 and Plant 2.
Anyone entering Plant 1 and Plant 2, must be pre-screened by an official representative on a daily basis. Your temperature will be taken, and a short mandatory survey must be completed. Based on the results of your pre-screen, they must approve your access to enter the plants.
If you are denied access, they will notify HR and your supervisor and you will be contacted about next steps.
