Our Plans for a New Normal
Well, it sure has been an interesting year. All our lives were flipped upside down last March when California went into a two-week quarantine. That two-week quarantine turned into a year long battle with a global pandemic.
At IFS, our main priorities have always been to keep our employees safe and our customers supported. As a fire and life safety company, these goals are essential to the welling being of our customers and their properties.
In the past year we have experience many difficulties as a company due to COVID. In the beginning we had a hard time finding PPE for our employees, then it was difficult to schedule inspections due to our customers own fears and COVID regulations, now it is difficult to manage the ever-changing COVID guidelines in the many different counties that we service.
If anything, this has been a learning year for our company. We have all learned how to lean on each other for support, even when we can’t all physically be together. We have learned how important our jobs actually are in making sure that numerous properties throughout Northern California are protected from fires, even when the buildings are not inhabited.
Our goal is to move forward and use the lessons that we learned this year to help grow and evolve our company. While we are nowhere near the end of dealing with COVID and its many side effects. Our team hopes that we have learned enough to keep some of our new practices in place.
We will continue to follow the State of California and OSHA’s guidelines for social distancing and mask wearing. We also will continue to supply our employees with supplies to keep their tools, trucks, workstations, and hands sanitized.
Here at IFS we also understand that all of our customers have their own guidelines for how they handle COVID at their facilities. As a service company, we will not only uphold our own COVID policies, but yours too.
If you have any questions about our company’s COVID policy’s and how our Technicians will stay protected at your facilities give us a call at 888-987-5322.
