Here at Western GMC Buick our customer and employee’s safety is a top priority. It is for this reason that we have continued to adjust our processes and procedures to ensure that we are not only meeting government health guidelines but also delivering a quality experience. As further developments take place, we will continue to review and monitor our practices to ensure the safety of our clients, our staff, and our communities.
For the immediate future, Western GMC Buick will remain open for business and operating with caution. In response to the various provincial health authority’s recommendations, we have taken the following steps:
We take cleanliness very seriously and have adopted daily procedures to ensure we provide as clean of an environment as possible. This includes taking steps such as
- Continuous, daily cleaning of the dealership.
- Asking all staff to be diligent in cleaning their surroundings, and to increase handwashing and person hygiene techniques.
We appreciate your desire to also maintain a clean environment, which is why we offer complimentary hand sanitizer with your vehicle service.
We use an all-natural, non-toxic disinfectant in a fogging machine that
- Is safe on all surfaces, skin, clothing and children’s toys.
- Kills over 99.99% of Bacteria including Virucidal, Bactericidal, Fungicidal, and Tuberculocidal spores (eg : COVID-19, HIV-1, Influenza A including H1N1, Norovirus, Mold, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, E-coli, Rhinovirus, etc).
- Is made from plant extracts containing Thyme oil and other germ-killing essential oils.
- Is safe for use around children, pets, elderly, pregnant women, and chemically sensitive individuals.
- Does not require any rinsing or wiping afterwards.
- Is made in Canada.
Friendly Greeting & Social Spacing
We have changed the way we greet each other to respect the two-meter guidelines. This includes taking steps such as
- Maintaining 6ft of space between staff and customers alike.
- Wearing a mask while inside the building as per the Alberta Health Services guidelines.
- Adopting the Health & Safety Advisory’s “no handshake” policy until further notice. We are still the friendly service providers you have grown accustomed to, and you can now expect a smile under the mask or a wave.
Travel Concerns & Further Development
We are following the Alberta Health and Health Canada guidelines regarding travel. These measures are being taken out of an abundance of caution to keep our communities safe. As such, we are asking
- Any employee who has travelled outside of Canada to self-isolate for a 14-day period prior to returning to work.
- Customers with upcoming appointments scheduled with us who may be experiencing flu-like symptoms, have recently travelled outside of Canada, or have been in contact with someone who may have the virus, we ask you to reschedule your service appointment to a later date.
Preventative tips during your visit
There are a few steps you can take to maintain a clean environment. These include:
- Carrying personal hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes. Hand Sanitizer is also available throughout our dealership.
- Washing your hands in our sanitized restrooms with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
- Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Staying home & rescheduling your appointment if you are sick.
- When coughing or sneezing:
- Covering your mouth and nose with your arm or tissues to reduce the spread of germs.
- Immediately disposing of any tissues you have used into the garbage as soon as possible and washing your hands afterwards.
