Employee Safety

The health and safety of our employees is our highest priority. We have corporate, regional and local crisis management teams in place actively monitoring, preparing and managing our COVID-19 response around the clock. We are implementing our safety plans and protocols based on World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and recommendations to help prevent the spread of the virus.

As cases expand globally, we've updated travel restrictions, and are providing new guidance to ensure we continue to serve our customers’ needs while practicing safe and healthy measures to contain and mitigate the spread of infection at our sites and offices. In that regard, we have taken several strong actions, including:

  • Suspending international travel and restricting all other travel to business critical only.
  • Mandatory self-quarantine measures for employees at risk of exposure.
  • Limiting access to our sites.
  • Conducting enhanced and more frequent cleaning services at all facilities.
  • Encouraging employees to practice social distancing, proper handwashing and hygiene practices.
  • Canceling participation at all large meetings, both internally and externally.
  • Requiring employees to work from home where possible.
