In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, A&J Energy Consultants has changed our office operations team to work remotely for the time being.

In discussion with our evaluators, all are in agreement that the testing process presents minimal risk in terms of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. However, as added precautions, please note that A&J Energy Consultants will be adopting new safety guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

These are as follows:
  • House should be move in ready, please see readiness checklist.
  • Evaluators will no long be physically checking into the construction site office but will announce their arrival with a text message or phone call.
  • Please ensure that they have reasonable access to the house.
  • We request that the house be empty, without working trades, for the duration of the evaluation process.
  • The evaluator will announce their departure with a text message or phone call.
  • To limit the risk of exposure for our team we will not be performing any inspections or air tests on occupied residences. 
  • Our team is committed to fighting COVID-19 and keeping our communities safe.
COVID-19 protocol for evaluations:
  • Not attending site if experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 OR if a known exposure has occurred
  • Washing hands before and after each house visit
  • Wearing surgical/disposable gloves
  • Sanitizing areas and touch points where work is performed
  • Practising social distancing (2 meters)
  • Sanitizing inspection tools at the end of each job
  • Sanitizing touch points inside personal and work vehicles at each job
  • If there is any change in status on any sites, please advise your AJEC contact so that they may adjust their scheduling accordingly.
  • A&J Energy Consultants will keep staff up to date and aware of Ministry of Labour, Provincial and National Public Health guidelines.
