Our Response to COVID-19

Personal Health and Safety
BnR 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 disinfectant. 

 

Mitigation Measures at Project Sites
BnR’s projects are implementing project mitigation measures that include requirements for maintaining social distancing, temperature screenings, health and hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting. 
 
BnR’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.
 
To ensure the health and safety of every person on a BnR 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.

BnR s 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.

BnR projects provide access to hand washing stations. Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of objects and surfaces helps to maintain a safe site.

 

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 BnR jobsite or office for 14 days from the date of contact.

 

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

 

Meetings and Travel

BnR is limiting in-person meetings, using remote conferencing technology tools, practicing social distancing when meeting in person.

Financial Transactions
