Health and Safety Protocols

Health and safety is always our first priority.

Our rigorous pandemic and business continuity plans remain in effect across the company. Our goal has always been for everyone to return to our workplaces when it is safe to do so. We are taking important precautions to keep our teams safe, including those working from home and those working in critical roles in our facilities and in the field. For example: 

  • Masks are required in shared office spaces, and in all common areas.
  • In operating areas where employees are able to work in office, team members are required to do daily health screenings, stay home if they aren’t feeling well and get tested if they’re experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • A ban on business travel remains in place. 
  • Good hygiene and physical distancing remain critical tools in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
