Mozer Works, Inc. is closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and rapidly evolving situations across the nation. First and foremost, our goal is to maintain a safe workplace and adopt practices that protect the health of our employees, subcontractor partners, clients and the public at-large. Mozer Works, Inc. is following the advice and guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the various local governments and agencies on how to best address the COVID-19 crisis. The following is a partial list of precautions that we are undertaking to protect our employees and our valued customers;
- Social distancing requirements - Enforcement of social distancing measures in all work spaces including maintaining 6’ spacing, wearing cloth face-coverings and/or respirators, limiting numbers of persons within our working facilities, disinfecting regularly and wearing gloves.
- Routine cleaning – We’ve adopted regular disinfection of work surfaces, tools, materials and vehicles with antiviral/antibacterial wipes or spray. In addition, common surfaces, break areas and bathrooms are cleaned at regular intervals throughout the week and after use. Employees are reminded to wash their hands with soap and water regularly, especially (but not limited to) the following situations;
A) Before and after wearing facemasks
B) Before and after entering client residences
- Employee monitoring - Employees will be checked daily for fever prior to beginning work. Any employee that develops symptoms during the course of the work day will be sent home immediately. Any employee that exhibits symptoms of an upper respiratory infection will not be allowed to return to work until resolution of their symptoms per CDC guidelines.
- Personal Protective Equipment during removal and installation – In addition to following the above stated guidelines, our employees wear NIOSH approved respirators to protect against lead particles during window or door removal while at customer’s homes. These respirators are rated to filter lead particles (100 nanometers), which are smaller than COVID-19 particles (~120 nanometers) and are in fact superior barriers than the N95 masks commonly used against this virus. During window/door re-installation, lead precautions are no longer required but our employees follow the mandated social distancing requirements and will wear either their respirators or N95/N100 masks.
