Like so many of our customers, family, friends, and neighbors, the entire team at Standard Insulating has been watching the news and ongoing developments regarding the global COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic.
While we will be following local and federal guidelines and recommendations as they are updated, we wanted to provide our customers with a brief note about our current operations and health and safety protocol.
1. Employee Sick Day Policy
No Standard Insulating Company team member will lose employment if they are sick and need to miss work. Employees are encouraged to use their paid time off in the event they are feeling sick or if they need to stay home to care for someone else who is feeling sick.
2. Safety and Protective Gear
Due to the nature of our line of work, our employees are fully trained in and follow a strict safety protocol. The protective gear we already use every day on the job, including respiratory masks, vastly exceeds guidelines recommended by the CDC for COVID-19, and we will continue to use them during appointments.
3. Social Distancing
The vast majority of work that Standard Insulating Company does is already located in areas of the home that you and your family are unlikely to spend much time in, like the attic, basement, or crawlspace. We’re happy to discuss in advance how our team can access these areas to perform work—there are many creative solutions to ensure you’re completely comfortable with our presence in and around your home.
As news continues to develop, we will be constantly reevaluating our operating practices, and welcome anyone who already has a scheduled appointment with us or is considering our services to give our offices a call and talk with a member of the Standard Insulating team.
