The heart of ESCFederal has always lied in the strength of our people, passion, and performance. As the news of Coronavirus (COVID-19) changes day-to-day, we know you have questions. We want to address concerns about our properties, our workplace, and the safety of our employees and clients.
First and foremost, though, we want to express our appreciation and gratitude to the entire ESCFederal team. While we’ve always prided ourselves on having the best people in the industry, our team members have demonstrated unparalleled leadership and heart. At every level we have seen our employees rise to the occasion, take charge with swift decisions, overcome daily challenges, and passionately support one another and our clients during this global pandemic. As our building and facility services team members continue to work tirelessly to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we remain optimistic. We know that as a company, as a community, and as a country we will overcome this adversity and get through these challenging times together.
COVID-19: Staying Educated & Trained
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our team members and the occupants of the building we serve. To that end, education about COVID-19 is our most important effort. Our Executive Management Team is proactively staying informed on the latest guidelines and health safety procedures through educational training, bulletins, and updates from:
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- National Safety Council (NSC)
- The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
- World Health Organization (WHO)
- Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA)
- Plus, various risk management, safety, and local health agencies nationwide
All levels of staff have participated in Work Hygiene Training as well as the most current and effective disinfecting and surface sanitizing procedures to prevent the spread of colds flu, Norovirus, and COVID-19. This training includes guidelines to reduce cross-contamination on surfaces, as well as advice for social distancing and proper communication techniques. We also continue to advise employees to follow the same precautions they would normally follow during cold and flu season, including staying home when sick and using disposable gloves and personal protective equipment.
COVID 19: Quarantine Policy
Self-quarantining is recommended by numerous medical organizations, as well as the CDC, for those who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or those who have been knowingly exposed to an infected person. ESCFederal is taking self-quarantining seriously: our Regional and Site Management team is educated on the symptoms of COVID-19 and will send an employee home to quarantine according to all CDC guidelines.
