May 11, 2020 – Protocol for Entering Homes: Door and Window Replacement
As we prepare for the potential lifting of any government enforced restrictions, SPS has developed the following protocol for entering homes.
Before entering a home, SPS will require that the Property approves this protocol with a signature. For each home SPS will require that the homeowner / resident (‘resident’) approves this protocol by signing a similar document. This protocol is provided to each resident in addition to being posted here.
The number of workers in a home will be limited to one where possible and a maximum of two. The same worker(s) will be in the home at any subsequent entry. Workers will endeavor to limit their path within the home. Workers will cover their walking area and path with drop cloths or plastic.
The resident is to move all personal belongings out of the work area prior to worker entry. Workers will not move any personal belongings. Any furniture or belongings left in the work area will be covered by single-use plastic.
Residents are to maintain physical distancing of 6′ from the workers whenever possible. The work zone will be delineated by ‘danger’ / ‘caution’ tape. Residents are encouraged to wear a mask at all times when in the home with workers.
Personal Protective Equipment and Health Guidelines
- The 6-question screening process will be completed daily for each worker.
- Workers’ temperature shall be below 100 degrees prior to entering the home.
- Workers shall wash and/or sanitize their hands prior to entry and after finish.
- Workers shall wear glasses, masks, gloves and boot covers at all times when in the home.
- Upon moving from one home to a different home, workers will use new and/or cleaned boot covers, gloves and masks.
When the work is complete, the workers will clean the work area using disinfectant wipes. Surfaces to be cleaned are those within 3′ of the work area that were touched by the workers such as windows, doors, door handles, stair railings, trim, etc. Wipes and plastic shall be disposed in a trash bag which is then disposed in the project dumpster.
