Coronavirus (COVID-19)

This coronavirus (COVID-19) company policy is susceptible to changes with the introduction of additional governmental guidelines. If so, we will update you as soon as possible by email.

This coronavirus policy applies to all of our employees who physically work in our office(s). We strongly recommend to our remote working personnel to read through this action plan as well, to ensure we collectively and uniformly respond to this challenge.

Policy elements

Here, we outline the required actions employees should take to protect themselves and their co-workers from a potential coronavirus infection.

Sick leave arrangements:

  • If you have cold symptoms, such as cough/sneezing/fever, or feel poorly, request sick leave or work from home.
  • If you have a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, you can return to the office only after you’ve fully recovered, with a doctor’s note confirming your recovery.
  • If you’ve been in close contact with someone infected by COVID-19, with high chances of being infected yourself, request work from home. You will also be asked not to come into physical contact with any colleagues during this time.

General measures:

  • If you are feeling ill, but you are able to work, you can request to work from home.
  • All work trips and events will be cancelled/postponed until further notice.
  • In-person meetings should be done virtually where possible.
  • If you are planning to travel voluntarily to a high-risk country with increased COVID-19 cases, we’ll ask you to work from home for 14 calendar days. You will also be asked not to come into physical contact with any colleagues during this time.
  • You must follow our clients’ COVID-19 policies and procedures when working at their locations.

 

General hygiene rules:

  • Practice Social Distancing (Keeping 6ft between you and other people) whenever possible
  • Where a face mask when social distancing is not possible.
  • Wash your hands after using the toilet, before eating, and if you cough/sneeze into your hands (follow the 20-second hand-washing rule). You can also use the sanitizers you’ll find around the office.
  • Cough/sneeze into your sleeve, preferably into your elbow. If you use a tissue, discard it properly and clean/sanitize your hands immediately.
  • Open the windows regularly to ensure open ventilation.
  • Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands to prevent from getting infected.
  • If you find yourself coughing/sneezing on a regular basis, avoid close physical contact with your coworkers and take extra precautionary measures (such as requesting sick leave).

 

Routine Office / Vehicle Cleanings:

  • There shall be routine cleanings of common surfaces in the office i.e. tables, counters, desk tops, keyboards, printers, doorknobs, chairs, faucets, handles of any kind and any other areas that are touched by more than one person.
  • There shall be routing cleanings of surfaces in the company vehicles i.e. door handles (inside and outside), steering wheels, all dashboard controls as well as the dashboard itself, and any other areas in the vehicles that are touched by more than one person.
