As stated before, we will stringently adhere to OSHA and Washington State Department of Health’s COVID-19 guidelines. Emphasis will be placed on the following protocols:
1. Warehouse employees reporting for essential work are asked to check their temperature prior to leaving home. If their temperature, or any family member’s temperature is 100 degrees or higher they employee is not eligible to report to work. They are to call the warehouse sick line.
2. Employees will be tested for elevated temperature prior to warehouse entry. Employees with temperatures of 100 degrees or greater will be sent home
3. All work stations are to be disinfected prior to start of operations.
4. All PPE such as hearing and eye protection shall be disinfected prior to being issued.
5. Personnel are to operate only their assigned work stations. If anyone other than the assigned operator uses the work station, that work station shall be disinfected prior to the assigned operator resuming work.
6. All warehouse staff shall maintain social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from each other. Warehouse work stations are, by design, greater than 6 feet apart.
All warehouse staff shall maintain social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from each other. Additional tables have been stationed in the warehouse for breaks and lunches. These tables shall accommodate no more than 2 people each – seated at opposite ends. Tables shall be sanitized by use of disinfectant wipes prior to use, and at the end of the break/lunch period.
As warehouse staff shall have their temperature taken prior to start of work – the warehouse supervisor shall manually enter the employees start, lunch and finish times. This will eliminate the use of a common keyboard and mouse.
As a reminder, best practices at work include:
• Wash your hands frequently
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue away immediately after use.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using household cleaning spray or wipe. (Your phone/tablet, vehicle surfaces, etc.)
Do not report to work if:
• You or a household members’ temperature is 100 degrees or more.
a. Please take your temperature prior to leaving your home for work.
• If you have developed a new cough or sore throat within the last 48 hours
• If you are experiencing a shortness of breath.
• If you are known to have had contact with a person that tested positive for COVID-19 or has been instructed to self-quarantine as a result of displaying COVID-19 symptoms
