EnviroTrac’s utmost priority is the health and safety of our employees. In response to the emerging pandemic from the COVID-19 Coronavirus, EnviroTrac has implemented the following practices to help alleviate the spread of COVID-19:
• An informational packet was prepared and reviewed with EnviroTrac employees that included safe practices for social distancing, avoiding potentially contaminated surfaces, effective handwashing and use of hand sanitizer, and protection from airborne particles. This informational packet encouraged employees to seek further information and cited resources, including the CDC web link.
• EnviroTrac’s Human Resources department completed a re-evaluation of the company’s sick policy and reiterated to employees the requirements to notify their supervisor and not to report to work or remote locations when feeling ill, including presenting symptoms associated with COVID-19.
• EnviroTrac has established processes for our employees to work remotely, including working at home to allow for social distancing and for self-quarantined workers to continue to work while not jeopardizing others.
• A Health and Safety Plan (HASP) has been prepared by EnviroTrac’s Safety Department to address health and safety measures that protect our employees. The HASP includes safe hygiene practices, the proper use of personal protective equipment, and information on disinfecting equipment and facilities to prevent the spread of the virus.
• EnviroTrac will follow CDC guidance on employees returning to work following a COVID-19 confirmed diagnosis or following symptoms of COVID-19 either self-diagnosed or in consultation with a medical professional. CDC recommends that an employee not return to work for at least 3 days (72 hours) following recovery, defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and, at least 7 days after symptoms first appeared.
