Dear Valued Stakeholder,
iAutomation is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our employees and their families, customers, and partners as we continue to manage through COVID-19. I wanted to take the opportunity to provide guidelines for our current approach to conducting safe and responsible business, including protecting iAutomation employees and protecting customers when we visit them or host them.
iAutomation’s management team is closely monitoring local developments and new regulations and guidelines daily. In March, iAutomation established a Cross-Functional Response Team that meets regularly to create and adjust plans with employee safety and business continuity central to all planning initiatives. As we continue to move forward, we will update our response plan as appropriate.
Employees: Hygiene and Safety Guidelines
If an employee is exhibiting any signs or symptoms of the flu or common cold, we ask them to stay home and inform their manager. Additionally, we support practicing good hygiene, including asking employees to wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, and covering coughs or sneezes with a tissue and then disposing of it. We follow the latest guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control, as well as local governmental guidance. At all our facilities, we have increased the frequency in which we professionally disinfect with a focus on high-touch surfaces. Our employees are required to wear a face-covering when social distancing of six feet is not an option and while in public locations. Employees are required to follow our mask policy at all times, except where they are exempted by the Department of Health. We enforce and encourage social distancing whenever possible. Our facilities are equipped with PPE, sanitizing supplies, and sanitizing hand gel that is available to all employees whenever possible.
Travel and Customer Site Visit Guidelines
All iAutomation employees will be required to follow our internal safety practices, both while in the office and while visiting external locations for work purposes. Our employees are asked to limit travel for situations that are better suited to be conducted in-person and are required to follow our internal safety practices, including, usage of a mask when 6 feet social distancing is not an option. In addition to iAutomation’s safety practices, our employees will also follow the customer’s safety policies at all times. iAutomation employees who are visiting an external site will be required to gain access to the site’s safety policy ahead of the visit to ensure adherence. We ask that our employees limit their on-site presence to the area of the facility that is in line with the nature of their visit and maintain 6 feet social distancing whenever possible.
All visitors will be required to sign-in with information regarding their potential exposure risks and current wellbeing. All visitors will be required to follow our employee internal safety guidelines. We ask that visitors limit on-site visits for situations that are better suited to be conducted in-person. Temperature checking will be a requirement for entry and will follow CDC guidelines. Visitors will only be allowed access to a limited area of the facility that is in line with the nature of their visit. We will have disposable masks available to all visitors. We request that any visitor who is exhibiting any signs or symptoms of the flu or common cold to reschedule your visit.
While these are certainly challenging times, please know that iAutomation is taking every action to prioritize the wellbeing of our colleagues and all those we interact with.
On behalf of iAutomation, thank you for your continued support in the fight against COVID. We wish good health and safety to you and your families.
