Expect enhanced safety measures
Like so many other essential businesses, Fire Systems has made extensive changes to the policies and procedures for all employees, especially techs who are in the field on a regular basis. We’re using CDC guidelines along with some individualized policies that are unique to our company.
“The biggest changes we have made are the guidelines that everyone is starting to follow,” explains Adam W., Fire Alarm Service Manager for Fire Systems, Inc. “We are encouraging techs to keep their distance from everyone, including other employees.” This separation in-house is an extra layer of protection Fire Systems is putting into place.
To ensure employees keep a safe distance, we’ve set up staging areas, isolating the office staff from the field staff. Typically, the techs who work in the field would enter the office space and the office staff would visit the warehouse. By isolating areas, the company is limiting exposure even further for those critical employees who are out servicing systems and conducting needed repairs during this time.
Another new set of guidelines involves protective wear. Again, per the CDC, Fire Systems is supplying techs with hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves. If techs cannot access an area to wash their hands regularly while on-site, they are still equipped with appropriate protective measures like sanitizer.
