SFU is not concerned about supply shortages, but does ask you to be safe, yet conservative in your use of PPE and cleaning products. SFU’s primary supplier, Staples, has a robust supply chain with multiple vendors within each category of PPE and SFU’s needs are being prioritized.
If you need other COVID related supplies, you should consult with EWay, they have a wide-range of supplies including body temperature scanners, barriers (meeting tables, reception, cubicles, etc.), signage and floor decals (please consult SFU Document Solutions), waterproof keyboards and covers, waterproof computer mouse, distance learning hardware (please consult with SFU IT Services), and Victory/Clorox surface sprayers (please consult with SFU Procurement).
Every effort should be made to use an off-the-shelf or customized barrier from EWay, but Facilities’ Stores has also secured bulk Plexiglas to make custom barriers for public-facing areas.
Departments should refer to the SFU COVID-19 Guidance for Safe Work on Campus document for direction on recommended PPE and cleaning products.
The use of bleach is being discouraged at this time due to safety concerns including potential hazardous interactions with the surface cleaning products used by Best Cleaning Services.
