COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

The SPS culture is rooted in trust. We expect our people to follow safety guidelines under the honor system. Safety is our first priority. Simplicity is also important. Additionally, storing vaccine records is complicated and not necessary. After analyzing our options, we propose the following changes to our safety guidelines.

Job Site Safety Guidelines

SPS MANAGEMENT TEAM RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Workers are encouraged to wash hands often with soap for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer
  • Restroom facilities and hand washing stations are cleaned and well stocked
  • Hand sanitizer is available on the job site and in the portable toilets
  • High-contact common areas – toilets, office trailer, etc. – are sanitized as needed
  • High-contact surfaces (desks, laptops, etc.) have been cleaned as needed
  • Any worker showing or complaining of symptoms has been removed from the site
  • Any exposures on the site have been handled according to the guidelines
  • Common areas were sanitized if a worker with COVID-19 symptoms was on the job site
  • Areas identified for cleaning and sanitizing after possible contact by a worker with COVID-19 symptoms were isolated from workers until the sanitation process was completed and area was deemed safe for use

EMPLOYEES & INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS

Fully vaccinated employees may come and go without any safety restrictions EXCEPT while inside homes.
Non-vaccinated employees should continue to follow the previously established safety guidelines which include:

  • Use face-coverings in common areas
  • If in shared spaces, discuss comfortability of removing masks while seated at work stations

INTERIOR WORK

Face coverings are required for all workers performing interior work until further notice.

Each homeowner may require additional safety protocols which we will honor.

Should there be any objections, we can review alternative options at that time.

Office Safety Guidelines

OFFICE SPACE

We will remove one-way travel and remove capacity limits in conference rooms.

We will return the chairs and tables to the training area to accommodate the prior capacity.

Hand-sanitizer and cleaning supplies will continue to be available in conference rooms and throughout the office. These should be used at individual’s discretion.

EMPLOYEES

Fully vaccinated employees may come and go without any safety restrictions.
Non-vaccinated employees should continue to follow the previously established safety guidelines which include:

  • Use face-coverings in common areas
  • If in shared spaces, discuss comfortability of removing masks while seated at work stations
  • Masks may be removed in conference rooms if socially distanced

GUESTS

Please wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

Once situated in a conference room, office, etc. the host and guest(s) may discuss comfortability with removing masks.

Effective 5/29/21

The State of MA has permitted all industries to open and lifted COVID-19-related restrictions (In addition to the states of RI, NH & VT). Fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a face covering or social distance except in certain situations. Non-vaccinated individuals are advised to continue wearing face masks and to continue distancing in most settings. All industries are encouraged to follow CDC guidance for cleaning and hygiene protocols. Face-covering requirements will remain in effect for public and private transportation systems and facilities housing vulnerable populations.
