Pandemic Response Return to Work Plan

COVID-19 Return to Work Safely

 

March 11, 2020 – MER is committed to providing a safe workplace and encourages and/or adopts practices that protects the health of employees, your families, and our clients. Below you will find workplace guidelines to be followed (guidelines are developed within all applicable regulatory guidelines).

  1. If MER is notified that an employee has come in “close contact” (within 6 feet per CDC guidelines) with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, MER should:
  • Identify when the employee believes they came into contact with the confirmed positive individual (to identify a timeline of potential workplace contamination).
  • Ask the employee to monitor their health and follow CDC guidelines if they begin to experience flu- like symptoms (specifically: fever, cough, shortness of breath per CDC).
  • Ask the employee to communicate to the Company if their health condition changes and/or if they’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Identify which areas in MER’s workplace (if any) that the individual came in contact with; perform cleaning procedures per MER’s COVID 19 SOP for all areas where the employee has come in contact.
  • The employee has two (2) options as it relates to the workplace:
    • a. The employee can remove themselves from the work environment for 14 days after last exposure.
    • b. The employee can continue to work while adhering to the following CDC guidelines:
      • i. MER will perform daily pre-screens of that employee; MER will measure the employee’s temperature and assess symptoms prior to them starting work.
      • ii. The employee will wear a face mask at all times while in the workplace for 14 days after last exposure. This face mask can be issued by MER or can be supplied by the employee (employee’s preference).
      • iii. Practice social distancing as work duties permit.
  1. MER is notified that an employee has been diagnosed with COVID-19, MER should:
  • Follow the applicable procedures outlined in the document, “Procedure When an Employee is Ill.”
  • Identify when the employee believes they contracted the virus (to identify a timeline of potential workplace contamination).
  • Identify which MER employees (if any) that individual came in contact with and communicate the confirmed diagnosis.
    • Follow section 1 for all individuals who came in close contact with the employee.
  • Identify which areas in MER’s workplace (if any) that the individual came in contact with; perform cleaning procedures per MER’s COVID-19 SOP for all areas where the infected employee has come in contact.
  1. If an employee is showing symptoms of acute respiratory illness (but no known exposure), MER should:
  • Ask the employee to leave the workplace and not return until they are no longer symptomatic for at least 24hours.
  • Follow the applicable procedures outlined in the document, “Procedure When an Employee is Ill.”
  • Ask the employee to monitor their health and follow CDC guidelines if their symptoms become worse or if they begin to experience flu-like symptoms.
  • Ask the employee to communicate to the Company if their health condition changes and/or if they’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19.

3/11/2020 Business Travel Policy (effective until further notice.)

The health and safety of our employees is our number one priority. As such, we have established a temporary travel policy to be followed until further notice. Employees shall seek written approval to travel from their manager. Managers will follow the guideline that nonessential travel will not be allowed. Travel that is already booked or may be considered essential will be considered on a case-by-case basis. This policy covers travel that requires any mode of transportation other than in a personal (or company) vehicle. Travel beyond 500 miles in a vehicle must be approved by a manager.
