The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the lives of Canadians: workplaces, homes and socially. MCI has worked with clients since the start of the health crisis to support the safest workplace practice through the provision of various services designed to safeguard the health of employees as well as support the business continuity of our clients.
Our clients additionally benefit from the information and best practice resource of MCI’s Medical Directors and collective group of physicians as Public Health knowledge and resources have evolved over the past several months.
MCI’s Corporate COVID-19 suite of services focus is on the elements of prevention, protection, diagnosis and education. We will continue to expand our workplace and clinic offerings as Health Canada approved testing and devices are made available.
Currently, the only Health Canada approved test to diagnose the disease is PCR testing, either in the laboratory or by a point-of-care (POC) device. There is the availability of lab-based PCR testing for workplaces in Canada.
MCI can implement the on site collection of samples for COVID-19 PCR testing to start up within 1-3 business days.
MCI offers Physician Telephone Consultation for COVID-19 RTW which can provide HR and H&S teams the confidence that the RTW recommendations have been validated and are following best practice public health guidance.
MCI has conducted Site Access Advanced Health Screening for unionized organizations as well as private sector clients since the pandemic threatened essential services.
MCI provides all resources, including PPE for staff, equipment and staff labour, to conduct questionnaire and temperature screening for all employees, visitors and contractors who access Intercontinental properties.
MCI offers clients access to the telephonic support of an MCI Nurse and Physician (if required) for employees who may have additional questions or concerns about COVID-19.
