frequently asked questions

Scott Safety has advised they can provide masks with 1-3 weeks delivery. When a BP is not able to provide a mask, Chevron has ensured that sufficient quantities are available. The expectation is still that the BPs supply their own workforce, but Chevron can assist when possible. Full list of current mask suppliers.
A. The SAS tool is to be completed every day prior to departing home for the worksite. All workers are required to complete the SAS tool and visit a screening site, (if one is not already located on your site) prior to beginning work. The Central Screening Site location has been changed to the Timber Ridge Hotel Parking lot in Fox Creek (314 – 1st Avenue, Fox Creek, AB).
A. At present, there is no shortage of PPE for Alberta Health Services personnel. Private medical services may have a different approach or access to these resources, which may be communicated in social media. At this time, there are no known restrictions in place to prevent the acquisition of COVID-19 PPE in Alberta. Distributors in Alberta are served notice when they are part of the provincial supply chain to restrict where this equipment goes when resources are scarce. Alberta Health Services is encouraging the use of masks when performing tasks that require you to break social distancing. In fact, Alberta is procuring millions of masks to be used for the public on transit, in public buildings, etc. Chevron adheres to the highest ethical standards with regards to supporting local authorities COVID-19 response.
Both the N95 and P95 masks have an efficiency of 95% under NIOSH 42 CFR 84. The P rating refers to the filter’s ability to resist oil particulates. A P99 or P100 mask provides greater protection. All are required to be fit-tested if used in a non-voluntary application, as outlined in the CBU Mask Guidance. If a wearer chooses to wear a P95 over a disposable surgical mask, this is still considered involuntary usage and would meet the manufacturer's requirement for fit-testing. If the mask is not being worn as designed, the 95% efficiency rating of the mask is no longer valid. 3M uses OSHA and the CDC for guidance. Health Canada and AHS defer to the CDC as well during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for guidance around non-NIOSH mask authorizations.
A. The use of cloth re-usable masks is voluntary when not performing a task on a Chevron site. If a worker is performing a task for Chevron, they are required to use a disposable surgical mask or N95/KN95 mask (or equivalent) as the task dictates. The risk with cloth masks is the handling, care and maintenance of them to ensure they maintain a protective factor and don't inadvertently expose others when not in use. They are suitable for travel in your own vehicle with others or interaction with the public in a non-Chevron venue.
A. Chevron SCM will work with Business Partners to aid in the procurement of adequate supplies of masks. When a BP is not able to provide a mask, Chevron has ensured that sufficient quantities are available. The expectation is still that BPs supply their own workforce, but Chevron can assist when possible.
A. Drivers hauling fluid for Ryder Logistics are still required to do the pre-access screening; however, they are not required to complete the temperature screen, unless they are hauling to a site that has a screener. All other drivers are still required to do both the pre-screening and the temperature screening when they get on site. Keep in mind, if a driver is hauling multiple loads during the day, they only need to do the pre-screen and temperature screen once.
A. If you are hauling through Ryder Logistics and the site is unmanned, then this activity may be considered fluid haul. The pre-screen is still required prior to coming out to site, and if you haul to a site with a Screener, a temperature screen will be done. When in doubt, visit the Central Screening site located at the Fox Creek airport and do a daily screening.
A. Screening paperwork has been replaced with the SAS Screening tool. In cases where the worker does not have access to a smart device, they can complete the screening paperwork and dispose of it on site. The Screener will not touch the document but visually verify it was completed. For other paperwork, such as permits, etc., a verbal acknowledgement is being used and documented by one person on site. The other option is to use your own pen and sign without touching the paper. Preference is certainly given to the verbal method. This process has not been formalized and may vary from site to site.
A. For tasks that require the worker to enter the 2m social distancing exclusion zone, the disposable surgical mask is the recommended product. If an N95 or KN95 mask is the only thing available, it too is acceptable. Masks are not expected to be worn unless we need to break social distancing. This is still the preferred method to avoid contact with COVID-19. Personnel can opt to wear a cloth face mask for times they are not performing a task for Chevron. This is a personal decision. Cloth masks must be handled and maintained carefully to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19.
A. The suggested equipment for entering the 2m social distancing exclusion zone is the disposable surgical mask. If a worker chooses to wear PPE that provides a greater level of protection, or if their company has a higher standard, they are encouraged to follow that standard.
A. The use of cloth masks is at the discretion of the worker. However, if they are performing work that requires them to be within the 2m social distancing exclusion zone, then a disposable surgical mask is required. An FR cloth mask is suitable for use elsewhere on site. Cloth masks require diligence to ensure proper handling. They also need to be frequently swapped out as they saturate. Please ensure that if your worker has an FR mask, they are able to verify that the material is FR.
