These are certainly unprecedented times—in our country and throughout the world. Your personal well-being, and the well-being of your family, is our top priority.
Please continue to follow along with our latest COVID-19 technician updates, and review our on-site safety recommendations below:
1. Stay out of harm’s way.
Before accepting any work orders, check local COVID-19 trends and cases with your local government or the CDC before heading out the door. Put your safety first!
2. Contact the buyer with any questions before you go on-site.
To empower your decisions regarding your personal safety on-site, Field Nation has asked buyers to be as clear as possible about on-site specifics when posting work orders, including details around:
- how many people you may come into contact with
- available parking locations nearby
- bathroom or handwashing station locations
As soon as you’re assigned, immediately review your work order details, including location, site information, and any other previously confidential information. If you’re concerned about site safety, contact the buyer to resolve the issue. If the issue cannot be resolved, remove yourself from the work order as soon as possible. If the confirmation window has already begun, Field Nation will ensure this does not negatively impact your access to the marketplace.
3. Clean any surfaces or equipment you work with on-site.
Keep in mind, the CDC recommends wearing disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces as well as cleaning your hands after removing gloves.
Ask buyers about available cleaning supplies, and if they aren’t able to provide them, ask if there is an on-site supervisor who can let you know the location of the nearest restroom where you can wash your hands.
With shortages of disinfectant cleaners and hand sanitizer around the country, we understand it may be hard to find proper cleaning agents. The CDC has posted cleaning and disinfecting tips, along with a list of disinfectants for use against Coronavirus. Using this list, try searching for the brand and product name along with its main active ingredient to look for available products online.
