As we navigate the effects of the pandemic COVID-19 virus, our priority is to ensure the safety of our employees and co-workers. Our goal is to keep everyone safe on and off the jobsite.
In all workplaces where exposure to the COVID-19 may occur, prompt identification and isolation of potentially infectious individuals is a critical first step in protecting workers, visitors, and others at the worksite and throughout our locations. To be sure these guidelines are followed, the jobsite foreman and or direct team member leader/manager for Zebby Sulecki, Inc. will be the designated competent person for enforcing the actions listed in this plan.
Pay attention for potential COVID-19 symptoms including, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you feel like you or someone on your jobsite or workplace has or is developing symptoms, remove them or yourself from the environment and report it to the proper authorities including, superintendents, project managers, operations managers, department managers, executives and safety directors so that appropriate actions can be taken.
If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. In adults, emergency warning signs*:
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
Control and Prevention:
- Workers with any symptoms – will NOT be allowed to enter the jobsite or workplace.
- Any worker with symptoms must contact the Vice President of Operations or their direct Leader/Manager immediately.
- Maintain social distancing with at least 6’ of separation at all times.
- If you are not able to maintain social distancing take necessary precautions by wearing added PPE.
- Promote frequent and thorough hand washing. If soap and running water are not immediately available, utilize alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60% alcohol.
- Encourage respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
Discourage workers from using other workers’ phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment.
- Maintain regular housekeeping practices, including routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, equipment, trade specific tools + surfaces. This should be done daily.
- Only one person may work from a man lift or platform lift, unless all are wearing gloves and face masks.
- No more than two workers shall work in a single room under 150 square feet (approximately 12 ft. x 12 ft.) and those workers shall make all practical efforts to maintain six (6) foot social distancing while they work. Rooms smaller that 70 square feet (approximately 8 ft. x 8 ft.) may only have one worker in that room at a time.
- All gatherings such as toolbox talks, breaks, or lunch must observe the social distancing guidelines providing distance of six (6) feet or more from each other and limiting the size of any gathering to 10.
We will keep updating our team members with any changes that arise, and will work to be vigilant that our team members and stakeholders take all safety precautions possible during this time of uncertainty.
