An Update from Jamison Door Company Regarding COVID-19
During this COVID-19 pandemic, the Jamison Door Company is determined to continue to safeguard the health of our employees while continuing to supply the needs of the temperature controlled industry with high quality products, delivered right, and delivered on time.
We want to share with you measures we’ve implemented to achieve the above goals. First, a few weeks ago, we posted the CDC recommendations and installed hand sanitizer stations outside restrooms, time clocks, and entry areas. We instructed our cleaning personnel to do deeper sanitizing of surfaces touched by personnel. We are emphasizing social distancing. We are limiting visitors including vendors at our plants and any business travel requiring use of mass transit such as airlines. Last week we again distributed and posted the CDC recommendations. This week management met with all our Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Montana employees to discuss COVID-19, measures taken, and to try to answer all questions. We took a new approach by meeting in small groups so we could maintain social distancing while seriously discussing the CDC recommendations. The small group approach worked out really well. As anticipated, there were a lot of thoughtful concerns and people felt much more comfortable voicing and discussing those concerns in small groups of coworkers. From our discussions, more hand sanitizing stations are now on order as well as sanitizing wipes, sprays, and tissues. Management continues to discuss and create additional needed response protocols. The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) has been very helpful with their management materials, as well as, our Federal health organizations.
We’re all in a very dynamic changing landscape, every so many hours there seems to be another announcement that affects us to some degree, but please know that your Jamison team will do what it can and is allowed, to protect the health of our employees while taking care of the needs of our customers.
