Partners, the protocol outlined below is to be implemented based on what is currently known about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Partners who do not own or have access to a personal thermometer are asked to discuss purchasing one with their supervisor, if needed.
See CDC's general protocol here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/risk-assessment.html
If your customers have different requirements or protocols than the above, please coordinate with your customers to ensure you meet their requirements. For detailed information regarding this CDC guideline, please visit here.
Per CDC recommendations, employees who appear to have acute respiratory illness symptoms (i.e. cough, shortness of breath) upon arrival to work or become sick during the day will be separated from other employees and be sent home immediately.
Partners who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness are required to stay home and not come to work until they are free of fever, signs of a fever (100° F ) or greater using a forehead thermometer, and showing no signs of symptoms for at least 72 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. Tylenol, cough suppressants).
Partners should immediately notify their supervisor and stay home if they are sick.
Employees who are well but who have a sick family member at home and/or have been in close contact with a person with COVID-19 must stay home and notify their supervisor and refer to CDC guidelines for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure.
If any Partner is diagnosed with COVID-19, they should follow their healthcare provider’s recommendations as well as notify your HR Business Partner. TD will inform fellow Partners of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace while maintaining confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
TDIndustries is committed to the safety of all our Partners, both internally and externally. The above action plan is consistent with the CDC’s Interim Guidance plan.
TD’s leadership is committed to providing the best work environment possible for all Partners and jobsites. These prudent preventative measures will serve us well to minimize risk to all our Partners and their families.
