The vaccination policy requires all employees of the Craftsman Group, which includes Craftsman Collision, Distinctive Auto Works, MB Autoworks, Craftsman Auto Glass, Wedge Clamp Systems and Craftsman Ventures, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Employees are to report their vaccination status before Nov. 30, 2021. In addition, the MSO collision center is making full vaccination a condition of employment for any individual hired by the company.

It is a top priority for the company to ensure that employees’ health, safety and welfare at work are protected, promoting a positive work environment. Craftsman’s safety was further enhanced by the hiring of a health, safety and environment manager in August 2019 to ensure that day-to-day operations at 42 locations are compliant with all provincial regulatory bodies.


The decision to require all employees of the Craftsman Group to be fully vaccinated, which includes subsequent dose and/or booster shot(s) by an approved Health Canada vaccination, is another initiative to ensure the safety and well-being of all employees and customers. Craftsman will accommodate those employees who cannot be vaccinated for valid reasons under the applicable human rights law and/or medical condition(s).

“Recently, we have seen many of our shops cross the threshold of 100% vaccination rate,” said Rick Hatswell, president of Craftsman Collision. “I thank all of the employees that have stepped up to get the vaccinations that protect all of us. This pandemic is greater than each individual person, so please do your part to keep us all safe and let’s get back to life without this pandemic.”


The company is committed to the implementation of new safety measures as they become available, as well as ongoing review of current policies in order to provide a safe and healthy work environment in response to the unprecedented challenges faced by COVID-19.

“These measures are to ensure the safety of our employees and customers and to keep the Canadian economy moving,” said Bill Hatswell, owner and CEO of the Craftsman Group. “We highly encourage others in our industry to follow Craftsman’s lead and implement a vaccination policy to create a healthy and viable industry.”
