Clayco’s Response to COVID-19 Outbreak

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
