Harold K. Jordan & Company, Inc. held a Covid-19 Stand Down on April 16th, 2020. The purpose of this Stand Down was to educate subcontractors and vendors of the current changes being made within the construction industry due to the virus outbreak. Municipalities have started inspecting jobsites making sure companies are adhering to the new safety standards during the Covid-19 crisis. We asked all employees to pause on our jobsites for a national safety stand down. This effort was led by the National Association of Home Builders, Multifamily Builders, and other organizations in the construction industry.
“It is imperative that workers on construction sites work to alter their behavior to follow guidance from health officials to flatten the curve of the spread of the virus,” says Glenn Turner Environmental Health and Safety Director for HKJ. “We even went the extra mile making sure subcontractors didn’t use sign-in sheets and our employees sent a list by email of those who attended,” he continued.
“We would like to thank everyone that took part in the Covid-19 awareness stand down. Our safety program is designed to preserve one of the most important assets we have, YOU,” said Hal Jordan.
The Covid-19 information expressed to HKJ Employees and subcontractors were specific data instituted by OSHA, CDC, and Insurance Providers. Additionally, HKJ will comply with the standards of all applicable regulatory agencies. It is the obligation of each employee to use safe work practices and to insist that all others on the site do likewise. A primary responsibility at all levels at HKJ, is regard for the safety of the public, our customers, our own employees, and the employees of our subcontractors. Our intent is to prevent any human suffering. Accidents, even minor ones, cause pain, both physical and mental. Prevention of injury and illness is a goal worthy of all our best efforts.
