Change has been a constant over the past several weeks and we have all had to be quick to adapt to new guidelines and procedures. As the pandemic evolves, APG is committed to following the latest guidance and using best practices to ensure that we can continue providing an essential service to our community while maintaining the health and safety of our employees. No matter what the future brings, our mission to make a positive difference in the lives and businesses of our customers, partners, employees, and community remains the same. We will always be a team who goes above and beyond in serving our customers and each other.
Safety has always been and continues to be our highest priority on every jobsite. In order to stop the spread, we have implemented an exposure prevention, preparedness, and response plan. At the beginning of each workday, the project superintendent or foreman must ask each employee a series of questions to determine if they have been exposed. If the employee answers no to all of the questions, they are cleared to work. If not, they are sent home and given specific instructions to follow. They will be asked to provide clearance from their doctor and/or a negative COVID-19 test result before returning to work. All employees must follow the CDC guidelines to prevent illness, such as maintaining social distancing and practicing good hygiene, and are being provided with personal protective equipment. Extra steps are being taken to regularly clean and disinfect all equipment, tools, and vehicles and to minimize the sharing of these items among employees. We appreciate the efforts of Safety Director Sean Hendry and Safety Compliance Officer Dale Rive in developing and implementing this plan.
