During this unprecedented time in our industry, Dale Corp remains committed and focused on protecting and supporting our employees, clients, subcontractors and operations. By sharing knowledge and information, we can help reduce the potential of spreading the Coronavirus by developing protocols to follow while performing our work. Every construction project is different, and site-specific protocols should be implemented to each project site.
This document was derived from and developed by Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC) on March 25, 2020 and revised by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) March 30, 2020. This document refers to managers, supervisors and employees and is incorporated by reference to mean those of any contractor, subcontractor, material supplier or vendor on all Dale Corp. construction sites.
Dale Corp. is a proud part of the construction industry, which has been deemed “essential” throughout the country during this Declared National Emergency. In order to be safe and maintain operations, we have developed this COVID-19 Exposure Prevention, Preparedness, and Response Plan to be implemented, to the extent feasible and appropriate, throughout the Company and at all of our jobsites. The Company’s Risk Management Team will continue to monitor the related guidance that U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) make available and implement the recognized best safe work practices on our projects. Our Safety Plan, along with this addendum, is a living document and is subject to change based on further information provided by the CDC, OSHA, and other public officials.
COVID 19 is a respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Symptoms typically include high fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. These symptoms are somewhat complicated by the fact we are still in the midst of Flu season and now allergy season. Regardless, the rules remain the same. We are directing our subcontractors to follow our daily sign in protocol and if any of their employees have any of those symptoms, direct them to contact their healthcare professional immediately and stay home. We ask in the good fellowship and morality of all contractors during this time, that if any of your employees are sick, to please stay home.
