COVID-19 Update from Abell

Abell Pest Control is your trusted partner for pest prevention, and we are committed to the safety and health of our employees and our customers. As such, we have a dedicated committee that continuously educates and coaches staff to minimize risk and address health and business concerns.

As an essential service, we continue to provide pest management and pest control to our customers, and we are fully compliant with all recommendations from Public Health officials. Our technicians are trained in best practices around infection control, hygiene, and safety.

In keeping with our business continuity plan, we continue to evolve and reinforce our protocols during the third COVID 19 wave and follow all guidelines and procedures established by health authorities.

Our #1 priority is the safety of our employees and our customers. To support this priority, we have:

Implemented Mandatory Training for all Abell staff to ensure they are armed with practical knowledge such as hand washing, sanitation, and social distancing.

Provided Personal Protection Equipment such as hand sanitizers, sanitizing spray for shoes, and equipment and protective gloves to all Abell employees. Facemasks and gloves are required 100% of the time while inside a customer’s location.

Created a Work Safe environment- any Abell employee who is feeling ill will not visit customer locations and will quarantine at home for 14 days.

Introduced Customer Signatures with Abell Hand-Held devices which eliminates the need for printed tickets, reducing the risk of transmission.

e-Tickets are available for Abell customers producing an instant electronic version of the service ticket to the customer, reducing the need to hand the paperback and forth.

We are actively monitoring the health and wellness of all Abell employees with Mandatory Employee Questionnaires and are committed to addressing their needs.

These locations are monitored and updated daily.
