Nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our customers, employees/teammates, and the local communities we serve.
As the U.S. and many other countries continue to battle the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), we wanted to let you know what we are doing and how we can assist you. We understand how unsettling this time can be, and we are committed to supporting you every step of the way.
Here are Ten Risk Control procedures to help reduce any potential transmission of COVID-19 in the workplace:
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Maintain social distancing protocol of 6 feet in the office, facility, lunchroom, etc.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and immediately wash your hands.
- Wash your hands regularly with anti-bacterial soap for 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer or antiseptic handwash that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Wipe down frequently touched areas with anti-microbial wipes or spray.
- Call your supervisor with any of the following symptoms and seek medical advice:
- Shortness of breath
- These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of the COVID-19 virus).
- Keep abreast of the constant changes provided by the CDC, OSHA, EPA and other state Departments of Health for daily recommendations.
- Work from home, if possible. If working at home, follow good ergonomic principles; use a good ergonomic chair, use a detached monitor/keyboard properly adjusted at a workstation and take regular micro-breaks.
