GUIDANCE FOR PRODUCTION RELATING TO COVID-19

The health and safety of our employees, clients, vendors, and families is everyone’s highest priority. The following ideas have been compiled to help us all prepare and plan. They are not intended to create any new legal or contractual obligations. The ideas are advisory in nature, informational in content, and are the result of consultation with several people representing various departments. Not every department is addressed herein. Personnel should use this planning guidance to help identify risk levels in workplace settings and to determine which control measures to implement. Additional guidance may be needed as COVID-19 conditions change. These ideas are not meant to be a perfect fit for every scenario, as we all know that no two are identical. Every person involved in production will need to collaborate and contribute in order for us all to be able to get back into production safely, cautiously, and confidently. Each of us must continue to bring a sense of personal responsibility to the workplace, and speak up when we have concerns or ideas.

We are all closely monitoring developments, and guidance will be updated based on current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, government, and our own learnings.

Guidance and information regarding taking temperatures at work and other medical questions that may be asked will be included as they evolve.

Please review the entire document. In an effort to reduce length, the choice was made to not repeat the same ideas in multiple places. Many of these practices are already commonplace, but were included to emphasize their importance.

This should be viewed as a link, as this is a work in progress:
