Dear Valued Customers,
With all of the uncertainty and troubling events that are surrounding us concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), it’s more important than ever that we take care of ourselves and each other. We are all dealing with these unprecedented challenges and ML Utilities, Division of ML Cranes & Equipment, is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and helping our customers to do the same.
Recent events have shown us how quickly a new disease can take root and spread in a way that affects us all. In this climate, we understand that conducting business may not be your first thought, but we want you to know that we are ready to work with you as best we can to provide solutions for the new issues that you and your business may be facing. Our leadership team is closely monitoring the landscape and we are committed to being responsive to your needs and well-being as the situation evolves, all while adhering to the safety and health standards recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
OUR HEALTH & SAFETY ACTION ITEMS
Since coronavirus appears to primarily spread through close person-to-person contact, below are some actions that we are taking, adhering to the CDC’s recommendations, in order to maintain a safe workplace.
• Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces
• Regular hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoiding touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
• Refraining from handshakes
• Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
• Staying at home and away from others if sick
• Covering coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash
We are all doing things differently now. Some of our team members will be working remotely and we continue to reinforce safe hygienic behavior in all of our surroundings. This includes our team working in the field as they have been advised to take the highest safety measures regarding their health and those around them at all times. Most importantly if any ML Utilities employee feels sick, they have been told to not report to work. Equally important is that all visitors to our locations also adhere to the CDC’s recommendations to help maintain a healthy environment for everyone.
If I can be of assistance to you, please contact me directly at 704-509-2728. I want to thank you for your support and understanding during a rapidly evolving situation as we focus on the well-being of our customers, employees and the communities we serve.
