Staying Safe while Serving America during the COVID-19 Pandemic
At MetroPower, safety goes beyond holding ourselves accountable for maintaining the highest safety standards and safe working conditions. It’s also about taking care of everyone we interact with — on and off the job.
Since the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak began, MetroPower has been taking the necessary precautions to protect our employees, our clients and business operations. This includes following CDC guidelines aimed at reducing the transition of COVID-19, such as proper and frequent handwashing, maintaining at least six feet of distance between people and staying home if you are sick.
In addition, we have modified our operational procedures regarding:
Travel restrictions: All non-essential business travel has been cancelled.
Vendors: Are prohibited from visiting offices and encouraged to conduct business by phone or e-mail until further notice.
Group meetings: We are restricting group meetings, and all employees are conducting business via telephone, e-mail or by web conference.
We’re doing our best to keep everyone informed, healthy and safe in our workplaces while also minimizing disruptions to our day-to-day operations.
Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has deemed our business as essential, it is imperative that we continue our work. We have a responsibility to support the critical infrastructure that will help us through this crisis.
How is our work essential?
• We support hospitals and healthcare facilities by providing electrical, plumbing, communication, security, nurse call and fire alarm services. Our healthcare facilities are caring for the sick.
• We ensure our military can run effectively by performing electrical, systems and communication services. Our military secures our nation.
• We service facilities that supply food, make paper products and engineer protective equipment. These facilities support critical supplies that Americans need most right now such as food, toilet paper and PPE.
We are extremely grateful to all of our employees—our teams in the field and in the office—for the essential work they are performing to keep our country running and to help protect our citizens during this unprecedented time.
