What is the POST Promise?
The POST Promise is a self-declaration from a business to its customers and employees that it is working hard to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Once completed, a business is provided with the communication and implementation tools needed to educate employees on the five key steps to workplace safety, which were created to be consistent with what has been recommended by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
Businesses who make the promise are then able to use and display the POST Promise logo, which will act as a clear indication to employees and customers that they are doing their part to protect Canadians’ health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The POST Promise brings together all businesses across industries to implement a common approach which is then communicated by a consistent visual cue.
What it is
The POST Promise is a national effort to help raise and restore consumer confidence. Participating businesses voluntarily commit to following the steps needed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. There is no cost to make the POST Promise, and it was specifically designed to complement what businesses are already doing.
What it is not
The POST Promise is not a “certification” or “approval” from any regulatory body. All businesses are still required to follow the laws and recommended guidelines from their local public health officials and government bodies.
It is for the common good.
The POST Promise brings together all businesses across industries to implement a common approach to help keep Canadians safe during the pandemic. When people see the POST Promise logo, they can have confidence that that business is doing what it can to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The more businesses and workplaces that adopt the use of the POST Promise logo, the more recognizable it will become to the general public, thus increasing consumer confidence.
