A spokesperson for the Ministry of Labor, Training and Skills Development confirmed receiving a complaint on Monday.
“It has been reported that the employer was not taking reasonable precautions regarding COVID-19. A ministry inspector has been appointed. No orders or requirements have been issued. “
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada also provided a 570 NEWS statement.
“The health and safety of our employees is our top priority. We continue to follow the advice of local health authorities, and our safety protocols follow their guidelines and the protocols that other companies currently operating in Ontario have in place. “Said Michael Bouliane, director of corporate communications.
Although production was suspended at Toyota’s manufacturing plants in North America until May 4, some essential work has still taken place.
Bouliane explained previously: “Essential work must be done to ensure that our installation is functional and safe for our employees when we finally return to production. For this reason, some of our team leaders and maintenance personnel have been invited to return to the facilities. “
He noted that there are strict health and safety protocols, which follow the guidelines of the authorities.
Last month, two workers at the Cambridge plant tested positive for COVID-19.
