Morcon Updates Safety Protocols in the Face of Global Pandemic
At Morcon Construction we are committed to operating safely and effectively throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Being in construction, we are no stranger to working around risks, however, most accidents transpire by factors that are identifiable, controllable, or even eliminable. Our culture of operating under strict safety protocols will not only be carried through, but will also be heightened to both help flatten the curve as well as keep our employees, project partners and community healthy. We continue to promote a safe work environment to mitigate both accidents and injuries as well as the spread of illness.
We do not take short-cuts with the well-being of our employees. Safety is everyone’s right and responsibility, and it happens because all of us take an active, enthusiastic role in making it happen. Following are some of the protocols we have put in-place:
- Office employees have been given the option to work from home
- Additional cleaning and sanitation measures are in place on all job sites, job site trailers and in our office
- All employees are required to wear masks at all times on the job site and in the office
- Social Distancing procedures are being enforced on job sites and in our office, including:
- Maintain a minimum of 6 feet at all times
- The use of video conferencing technology is encouraged whenever possible vs meeting in person
- Group lunches and shared meals are prohibited
- Tool and equipment sanitation must take place after each shift
- Handwashing stations and/or hand sanitizer will be made readily available for all employees
- Washing hands thoroughly, for a minimum of 20 seconds, when arriving to work and prior to leaving is highly-encouraged
- All employees are required to report any COVID-19 symptoms to their immediate supervisor, followed by testing. Employees are not allowed to return to work until a negative test result has been received. Employees with a positive test result are required to self-quarantine for a minimum of 15 days prior to returning to work.
