SCM ON CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Dear SCM Employees and Partners,
At Southern Concrete Materials, the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and the communities that we serve are always a top priority. We are actively monitoring updates regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and are striving to follow the guidelines and precautions provided by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), the WHO (World Health Organization), as well as those from public officials both Federal and State.
Our goal during this pandemic is to continue with all phases of our business processes that provide products and services to our customers and corresponding gainful employment to our family of employees as long as circumstances allow us to press forward in a safe and compliant manner. To do this we are implementing administrative and engineering control practices as advised by the CDC and WHO to endeavor to maintain safety, security, and awareness at our workplace. We have established a small team of managers as a task force to discover and provide our employees with constant updates as to the evolution of the disease, local outbreaks, local centers and procedures for testing and specific healthcare. We will also provide relevant information regarding any type of temporary workplace isolation and/or quarantine measure that may be required to accomplish our goal along with concurrent changes with government policies and provisions. These employee updates will be provided from our HR office in the form of company MEMOs and accompanying attachments.
During this very unprecedented time we ask that all our employees, customers, and vendors respect the seriousness of the situation as we work through changes due to this unsettled pandemic. This is not a time to panic but rather to champion common sense precautions, teamwork, and human decency.
