AMS’ safety record is no accident: Workforce safety during COVID #17
Posted by AMS / Thursday, February 4, 2021
In our previous blogs we have talked about the many ways that AMS is taking the necessary precautions to keep employees safe during the pandemic, In all of those months we have learned what works and how to make things work better; we have dealt with covid fatigue, we have gone through peak season, with temporary workers and lots of pressure. And we’re still learning.
AMS has recently increased their sanitizing process across all buildings. In a past blog we described what AMS was engaged in with regard to sanitizing:
- We placed additional hand washing/sanitizing stations, pumps and wipes in our buildings for convenient and frequent hand hygiene.
- We brought in a 3rd Party cleaning agency to first do a deep cleaning in each building, and then provide 2-3 people onsite at each building each day to provide incremental sanitizing and cleaning services. In addition, after an employee tested positive for COVID-19, we engaged the cleaning agency to deep clean the facility again.
- We developed a checklist for all high-risk common touch areas that must get sanitized a minimum of 4x per day by our dedicated employees, and we reallocated revenue generating employees to cleaning duties.
Now we can add to that list a recent improvement. AMS has stopped using steam cleaners and switched to spraying guns equipped with UV lights. The UV light is used in conjunction with a special mix that kills all viruses including COVID-19. We are sanitizing all areas three times per day.
AMS is continuously working to make employees safer and our dedication is helping them to not only be safe, but to feel more confident and secure in coming to work.
