Keeping all of us Safe
Covid-19 Protocol and Safety Measurements
What We Do Differently:
We have implemented several new policies and procedures, which follow recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are in constant communication with our employees to reinforce our sanitization safety procedures in both our drivers and our office staff. We are sanitizing high-traffic public areas at an increased frequency.
1.Hand sanitizers are located throughout our offices and our vans. Sanitizers are refilled and checked regularly.
2.Public touch points, such as handrails, elevator buttons, door handles and knobs are cleaned multiple times throughout the day.
3.Our vans are cleaned throughout the day with disinfectant wipes and surfaces are cleaned and wiped down daily.
American Transit Team vehicles go through and extra daily disinfection process using EPA-approved and CDC-recommended products. That’s in addition to the standard cleaning that vehicles receive on a regular basis.
4.American Transit Team provides disinfectant solutions and cleaning cloths to our drivers to ensure that they can clean their workspace throughout the day. We are also providing equipment like masks, latex/vinyl gloves, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes to employees.
5.Mask or face coverings are required on all passengers above seven years of age. We ask our passengers if they have symptoms of coughing, fever, chills and/or sore throat. We also ask if they have been in close contact or living with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19
6.Our employee’s temperatures are taken at the beginning of each shift to ensure they are well
Our employees are prohibited from reporting to work if they have a respiratory illness that can be transmitted to others. We have instituted and new sick leave policy with offers a 5-day paid sick leave to ensure employees who are ill remain at home. If any employee were to be diagnosed as having coronavirus, they would be placed on a Medical Leave of Absence and would be paid for the duration of physician-mandated time off.
