COVID-19 Policyand Procedures

The Alberta painting Contractors Association (APCA) is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely and are fully committed to protecting all personnel and others we encounter to the best of our ability.

Active participation is critical to stop the spread of the virus and keeping construction sites open. We understand this is a difficult time for everyone and circumstances are changing rapidly.

When performing QA paint inspections on job sites, the APCA inspectors will follow the site specific COVID-19 plansin placeon your job sites.

Our inspectors will not report to any project site if they have exhibitedany of the COVID-19 symptoms, such as:

  • A new dry cough
  • fever
  • tiredness
  • shortness of breath
  • aches and pains
  • sore throat

When conducting QA paint inspections, our inspectors will perform them maintaining physical distancing requirements.

Together we can ensure the construction industry stays an essential service, project sites stay open all our people keep working!

In August 2018 our friend and QA Paint Inspector, Wilf Grapentin passed away. APCA decided to start a scholarship in his name. Since the provincial government has suspended the Painting & Decorating program in Alberta, we decided to do something else. So yesterday we donated $10,000 in Wilf’s name to The Calgary Dream Centre, specifically their woodwork shop.

Helping people move forward when experiencing challenges in life is what the Dream Centre does and APCA and its members are happy to help. We will be helping them whenever we can.
