COVID-19 Industry Survey Results – Trends in Changes to Policies and Procedures in Phased Reopening
BakerRisk recently surveyed industry organizations on steps they have taken or plan to take to help mitigate workplace hazards during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since organizations have not previously experienced or planned for operating under these circumstances; this survey was intended to help industry openly share actions taken in response. Running from May 21st – June 8th, this survey received a range of responses from R&D facilities and corporate offices to large O&G/Petrochem/Chem facilities with over 1,000 employees. We appreciate the numerous responses and comments to the survey, the results of which demonstrated a strong commitment to timely implementation of preventive actions to protect employees, contractors, and visitors.
Key points of the survey include:
- On-site staffing reduced to essential personnel only,
- Modifications made to procedures and training to meet government and corporate guidance recommendations, and
- Many facilities implemented physical separation protection changes inside buildings, along walkways, and other on-site occupied areas.
The survey results are further summarized in the downloadable report below.
We greatly appreciate the industry’s participation in the survey and the timely responses. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of service to support your future initiatives and projects to further protect your personnel and facilities from the COVID-19 pandemic.
