What We are Doing to Keep Everyone Safe
- Business Travel – only essential travel is permitted (essential travel is deemed as travel directly affecting business continuity and must be approved by Bob Clark, Steve Sieckhaus, Kevin McKenna or Kapil Khanna)
- Personal Travel – those coming from COVID-19 “Hot Spots” will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days
- Visitors to Offices – all in-person meetings with visitors to the office are postponed indefinitely and will utilize video conferencing instead.
In the Office:
- Staff – Rotating 50% work from the office and 50% work from home to get additional social distance in the office
- Work From Home – Tips for working from home for rotating and self-quarantined staff can be found here.
On the Jobsite:
Separation: Goal is to keep everyone separated as much as possible – at least six feet of personal space.
• Meetings – remove seats from conference rooms so people can spread out or hold meetings via video conference
• Work Areas – coordinate daily with subcontractors to prevent crews from working too close to each other (work on separate floors or opposite ends of floor)
• Break Areas – stagger break times and/or provide more areas for crews to be able to spread out
• Orientation – Limit groups to 10 or less – 6’ of space per person. Have subs make appointments to get people into orientation
• TBT | Stretch & Flex – Move outdoors to spread out or have crews perform individually (provide TBT script and sign sheet to foreman)(Stretch and Flex Program: here)
• Paperwork – If possible, stage paperwork in building or outside trailer. Post a mailbox outside trailer for foreman to turn in completed forms
Cleaning: Means to frequently and thoroughly clean common areas must be put in place.• Make sure adequate supplies are available
• Areas of extreme focus: Door knobs/handles; Restrooms and porta-jon facilities; Kitchen counters, sinks, refrigerators, water coolers; Conference room tables and chairs; Break area tables and benches/chairs
• Increase staff to focus on these tasks, as necessary
Hygiene: Insure that adequate information and facilities are available.
• Post signs/posters in areas around the site
• Install extra washing facilities spread out around the site
• Install hand sanitizers in multiple areas around the site
• Focus on break areas, restrooms, stairs (hand rails)
• Avoid sharing tools, but if you must, sanitize with Clorox wipes between users
• Clean equipment between users
Screening: Projects need to make accommodations for screening all workers that enter the site for body temperatures.
• Establish a single entry point for all workers
• Procure scanning, non-contact temporal thermometers
• Workers with temps of 100.4 or higher moved to additional screening
• Questionnaire to be completed/reviewed by nurse for recommendations
• Testing for COVID-19, quarantine off-site
