PRECAUTIONS TAKEN TO PROTECT OUR EMPLOYEES & OUR CUSTOMERS

  • We recently redeveloped policies for worker protection and provided additional training to all cleaning staff focused on preventing the spread of COVID-19 and recommendations by the CDC
  • Training program includes increased focus on PPE: when to use PPE; what PPE is necessary; how to properly don (put on), use, and doff (take off) PPE; and how to properly dispose of PPE
  • Employee work procedures have been modified to allow for proper social distancing
  • Employees are frequently reminded to wash hands while at work, every 30 minutes at a minimum
  • Managers and Supervisors are directed to be diligent in ensuring all employees are in prescribed PPE and reinforces proper use at every shift briefing, as well as throughout the shift
  • Employees are regularly retrained on the hazards of the cleaning chemicals used in the workplace in accordance with OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard
  • Retraining specific to complying with OSHA’s standards on Bloodborne Pathogens including proper disposal of regulated waste, and PPE

 

 

YOU TOO CAN HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF INFECTION

By following a few safe practices and following CDC recommendations for safely navigating the current state of the world, you too can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infections

  • Be diligent in maintaining social distancing
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough and shortness of breath), you should immediately call your doctor for further instructions.
