After a six week shutdown, honoring the Governor's request to shelter at home, we are back in the field doing what we love. We are operating with an increased safety protocol, which includes strict adherence to government guidelines regarding Covid-19.
Is it safer working outside?
Although it is generally safer to be working outdoors among the trees, there are still aspects of our day that put us in closer proximity to others. To address this, we have instituted the following company protocol.
* Our crews bring lunches to avoid unnecessary trips to stores
* We have staggered start times to limit the number of people at the shop
* Each crew member is assigned his own vehicle - one person per vehicle
* Trucks are sanitized each day
* Each truck is outfitted with a sanitation kit and washing stations
* All crew members have masks and gloves with them
* No crew members will approach clients or knock on doors
* Gloves are worn when filling the trucks at gas stations
* All time clock activity happens through employees' phones
* Time inside the shop is limited to essential business by crew leaders only
* Masks are worn at all times in the shop
* Disposable germ barriers are replaced on all common surfaces in shop daily
* Our office staff continues to work at home until further notice
Our client care team is still meeting with clients via phone, video, and select site visits to keep your projects moving along. Masks and social distancing protocol is followed.
