DATE: March 19, 2020
TO: All Project Team Members
Lamp Incorporated is following the current precautionary guidelines set forth by government agencies and is continually monitoring the situation for updates. Construction site operations will continue as normal, except as previously communicated and outlined below:
Employees may be working from home or may have varied hours in the office. If samples, submittals or any other items are required to by delivered to our office, please contact the Project Manager or Assistant Project Manager to coordinate.
All construction meetings are suspended until further notice. Project managers will be on site during the original scheduled meeting times but to talk in small groups. Weekly project meeting minutes will be generated based upon individual discussions and the project look ahead schedule will be updated. If a group meeting is required, a conference call will be initiated by one of the project team members.
Please continue to keep accurate daily logs noting all employees, both hourly and salary, working and/or visiting the project site. Include subcontractors and suppliers.
If any members of a trade contractor’s workforce, including their subcontractors and suppliers, have contracted, or is suspected to have COVID-19, notify the Lamp Incorporated Project Superintendent and Project Manager immediately. We will need to know who the employee came in contact with on the project site so proper notification can be given.
If the Lamp Incorporated Project Superintendent, Project Manager, or Safety Manager suspect a trade contractor’s employee, subcontractor, or supplier to be sick, we will ask the trade contractor’s superintendent/foreman to have the employee leave the site immediately. If the employee is your site leader, we will contact your office. Lamp will be stocking our safety kits with disposable thermometers for confirmation of fever.
If an on-site occurrence of COVID-19 is discovered, we will follow CDC guidelines which could include shutting down the jobsite in whole or partial, disinfecting, and asking all that came in contact to self-quarantine until they are cleared to return to work.
We ask that all trade contractors and subcontractors please update their safety plans to address COVID-19. We will be looking for steps that you will be using to minimize the outbreak of the virus on the project site.
All trade contractors are to contact their material and equipment suppliers to determine if any manufacturing, shipping, customs, or any other delivery delays may be anticipated due to COVID-19 and notify Lamp Incorporated of the potential delay and possible impact.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these uncertain times.
Ian C. Lamp, President
