National, state and local agencies have deemed the vast majority of work in the construction industry as ‘essential’ to our country’s infrastructure and economy. Grocery stores, pharmacies, water treatment plants, healthcare facilities and other critical businesses are also in this category. We join our colleagues in the AEC community in an all-out effort to balance getting the work done and keeping our people safe. To that end, we have put in place a variety of protective measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees, trade contractors, industry partners and clients remains our top priority – all while continuing to support the building needs of our communities.
During normal operations, we make safety the most important thing we do – whether in the office or on our jobsites – but during this unprecedented period of time, it is even more critical that our focus on day-to-day operational safety is heightened. Our Operations and Safety teams are taking a personal approach to the CDC guidelines by educating teams on preventive hygiene measures, taking temperatures prior to arriving on site – and placing specific emphasis on the ‘six-foot rule’ in terms of social distancing while working.
In addition to complying with all CDC and government regulations, we have expanded upon them to take the safety and health of our people to the next level in the areas of communication, manlift/buck hoist, social distancing and cleaning/sanitation. A few examples include:
We are committed to staying on top of each new development and to being as proactive as possible in the effort to keep our teams and our communities healthy.
