Ottawa – BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX.V: BLM), a full-service environmental consulting and engineering cleantech firm, completed an important project to support health and safety for students, educators and child care workers in Nunavut.

BluMetric’s industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety experts delivered training, technical support and logistical support for 45 schools and 58 child care facilities under the jurisdiction of Nunavut’s Department of Education. The Company worked with educators and custodians to provide safe and protected environments for daily operation, and the tools to respond to evolving pandemic conditions.

“We’re privileged to have been awarded this critical opportunity,” said Scott MacFabe, CEO of BluMetric. “The Covid-19 pandemic presents unprecedented challenges and requirements. Our extensive experience working in the area, recent and similar projects at schools in the north, and our expertise in occupational health and safety were all deployed to help the Nunavut Government mitigate risk as children return to school and child care facilities”.

“BluMetric delivered an excellent service in these uncertain times, with limited time to prepare and implement the program,” said Deputy Minister of the Department of Education, Kathy Okpik. “They respected Nunavut’s public health measures and supported the safe return of our children, students, and staff to schools and child care facilities across Nunavut.”

BluMetric supplied materials and equipment for each of the facilities and developed and delivered training in cleaning and the effective use of personal protection equipment by staff during the school term.

This assignment highlighted BluMetric’s ability to respond under tight timelines delivering industrial hygiene and health and safety services, while working in remote communities under challenging pandemic conditions. BluMetric recently completed a chemical inventory and management project for the Department of Education in Nunavut, and this familiarity with complexities of delivering projects in Canada’s north, a niche market for BluMetric, ensured a successful project.
