  • Shortly after the COVID-19 outbreak occurred in China, we established a dedicated COVID-19 task force representing all parts of the company to begin reviewing and implementing actions to prepare for the inevitable impact on our company’s operations. The following actions have been taken to help our company prepare for and actively manage this issue.
  • We have worked closely with all employees, subcontractors, suppliers, owners and others to ensure that anyone who is ill or believes they have been exposed to COVID-19 refrain from entering our office and project locations. This includes, in some locations, requiring pre-and post-access health questions and pre-access and periodic temperature screening. We have also severely restricted visitor access to our office and project locations and have required non-essential office personnel to work from home.
  • We developed protocols, procedures and best practices to ensure employees practice recommended social distancing (separation of 6 feet or more) to the extent possible. On our project sites, we are providing surgical masks for specific operations that may require closer proximity to ensure the safety of personnel, and other face-protection tools for daily operations.
  • We established dedicated processes and personnel, trained to use detailed exposure intake questionnaires to document, to closely track all confirmed and presumptive positive COVID-19 cases, and implement strict cleaning, quarantine and return to work protocols.
  • We are fully engaged in active and ongoing monitoring of this issue, including disease progression, federal, state, provincial and local government actions, CDC and WHO responses, supplier and supply chain risks, and prevention and containment measures to maintain business operations.
  • In addition to our existing site crisis management plans, our operations expanded and implemented their pandemic response plans to ensure a consistent, comprehensive response to various COVID-19 scenarios.
  • With the guidance and direct involvement of industry-leading industrial hygienists, we implemented more stringent office and project site cleaning and hygiene protocols in all locations and developed specific viral contamination protocols to address confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 exposures. We also developed more stringent tool, vehicle and equipment cleaning protocols.
  • For employees, we established a, regularly updated COVID-19 important communications, regularly updated protocols, business planning tools, best practices, signage/flyers and other important resources.
  • We have significantly increased communications, signage and oversight of personal hygiene requirements to drive better prevention practices.
    We postponed social gatherings, large in-person training sessions and other activities involving groups of 10 or more.
  • We have prohibited virtually all company travel unless approved by Senior management. We have also required all employees to report their personal travel schedules so we can closely monitor and take any necessary steps to maintain the safety of our workforce.
  • While travel is effectively prohibited, we have significantly increased the use of company communication technologies that we already have in place.
  • We take the COVID-19 threat seriously and are taking measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 to our team members, our clients and our business. The work we do is very important, even critical to sustaining the needs of society. As long as we can operate our projects safely and deliver high-quality work, we’ll continue to support our clients and the many people across North America that count on us.We wish good health and safety to all our business partners and their employees and families.

Personal Health and Safety

Greenbridge is taking intentional, creative approaches to keep people safe. The company has increased hygiene and employing a wide range of tactics to keep people healthy.

To reduce the chance of spreading infection avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. We should also frequently clean “common” surfaces with alcohol based disinfectants.

Mitigation Measures at Project Sites

Greenbridge projects are implementing project mitigation measures that include requirements for maintaining social distancing, temperature screenings, health and hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting.

Greenbridge’s social distancing guidelines respect a six-foot or greater distance. Projects are reducing encounters by staggering trade arrival and departure times, establishing distinct work areas, and limiting the number of people in all work spaces, common areas, and hoists. People are discouraged from facing each other while riding in a hoist.

To ensure the health and safety of every person on a Greenbridge project, workers must stay home if they are not feeling well. All persons should be encouraged to proactively self-check their temperature prior to coming to the office or job site and not come to work if they have a fever.

Greenbridge is implementing temperature-screening measures to detect potential infection and minimize the spread of the virus. At temperature scanning stations, people complete a safety-check assessment prior to entry.

Greenbridge projects provide access to hand washing stations. Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of objects and surfaces helps to maintain a safe site. These areas include: hoist, tables, microwaves, coffee machines, turnstiles, handrails, buses for transport of workers, doorknobs, bathrooms, and all common areas.

Remote Work

Greenbridge supports all employees in focusing on what they need to do to take care of themselves and loved ones. We want as many people as possible, especially those with high risks, to work from home.

Visitor Restrictions

Site access is restricted to those essential for project continuity.

If you had close contact with an individual who has a confirmed positive test result for COVID-19, you are not permitted on a Greenbridge jobsite or office for 14 days from the date of contact.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and stay away from others. You are not allowed in a Turner facility.

Meetings and Travel

Greenbridge is limiting in-person meetings, using remote conferencing technology tools, practicing social distancing when meeting in person.
Employee participation in business meetings, conferences or events are suspended.

COVID-19 Action Team

Greenbridge has an Action Team in place devoted to establishing the manners in which we protect and support people, share information, reduce the potential for the spread of the virus, and support the continuity of our operations. The team has developed and will continue to refine protocols for responding to this dynamic situation.

Supply Chain

Greenbridge is monitoring worldwide supply chains for actual delays that may affect our ability to maintain the schedule on our work.

Financial Transactions

There are individuals who are using this situation to target the financial dealing of companies. We will not change payment instructions via email or text. Please do not act upon or accept any requests to change the payment instructions specified in your contract with Greenbridge unless the communication comes directly from a Vice President of Greenbridge in writing by regular mail, and you follow up with a phone call to Greenbridge at a number you know to be accurate.
