The world health community continues to monitor closely the emergence of "coronavirus disease 2019" (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that the flu virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address key concerns. 
First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and encourage and adopt practices protecting the health of employees, contractors, visitors or other stakeholders, as well as comply with other requirements imposed by or under the OHS legislation.
We plan to achieve this by providing health information and training as well as maintain and monitor health conditions of staff and contractors.

 

We ask all employees, contractors and clients planning to attend any Loumain project site to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of diseases in the workplace.
