Tri-Tec and Covid-19
Tri-Tec has taken a number of steps to support our employees and maintain our ability to design and manufacture quality products for our customers. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and our workplace. Please be aware of the following practices in place at Tri-Tec. These may change at any time as local and national guidance changes.
- All visitors must enter by the front door at either our main building (east campus) or west campus.
- Visitors need to have an appointment and confirm that the person they are meeting will be on site. We have a number of people who are working at home or off site, and the number changes daily.
- Visitors will be asked a number of health screening questions and may have their temperature taken or other observations relevant to determining if they have an active case of Covid-19, as recommended by public health authorities. Persons who have an elevated temperature or any other visible symptoms should not expect to be admitted. Please take care of yourself and avoid infecting others.
- Visitors will receive a badge which must be worn at all times.
- Visitors will be escorted during their visit.
- Visitors are asked to observe community health precautions: maintain social distancing (6' or more separation), wash or sanitize hands (Tri-Tec has supplies), and use the inside of your elbow to catch all coughs and sneezes.
- Employees are expected to stay home if they are symptomatic (feverish, dry cough, or other symptoms as described by public health authorities for Covid-19). Tri-Tec has revised its PTO and leave policies to provide as much flexibility as possible so that employees can make the best choices for their health, the health of their families, and the health of all of our employees.
- If an employee shows up with symptoms, they can expect to be sent home and should understand that this is a common precaution to protect everyone.
- Employees who can work remotely are encouraged to do so. Tri-Tec will provide equipment and technical support to enable employees to work remotely.
- Employees may expect Tri-Tec to continue to follow orders and recommendations from public health authorities, which may include checking temperatures one or more times a day and other precautions intended to ensure the employee can be cared for as early as possible and to minimize the risk of exposing others to any contagious disease.
- Employees should wash their hands frequently.
- Employees may be assigned facility sanitation tasks in addition to their regular job duties.
- Please read this letter from Mark Haller, Tri-Tec's president.
