We Stand Ready.

Over the course of 127 years, we have seen our fair share of uncertain times. As Covid-19 causes disruptions across the globe, we want our customers to know that we stand ready. We prepared for crisis so that we can carry on without interruption the customer service you expect, even in the midst of turmoil.

We made these preparations because we are rooted in our communities. You are our neighbors. We not only stand ready, but we stand with you. As we deal with uncertain times, know that if you need us, we are here. We pivot, adjust and move forward, but we’re always here.

We do our job so you can do yours.

Here yesterday, tomorrow and especially today.

U.S. Engineering is continually monitoring the situation and will be updating this blog post over time. First posted March 13, 2020. Last updated March 23, 2020.

Like all of you, U.S. Engineering is taking the necessary steps to do our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19, while at the same time ensuring we meet the needs of our partners and customers. We are employing our Business Continuity Plan and are remaining agile as new information comes to light.

The following provides an overview of what steps and precautions we are taking. Of course, things are changing rapidly, and we’ll make updates to this post as necessary. 

  • Our COVID-19 Task Force meets daily as this situation evolves.  
  • Daily communications are sent out company-wide to keep all team members up to date and informed.  This information is also posted on our company intranet site.  
  • All business travel has been prohibited unless approved in advance by a company President.  We have encouraged Team Members to be mindful of CDC guidelines for any personal travel.  
  • “Tool Box Talk” has been developed and is being rolled out to all team members to educate them on the latest OSHA and CDC guidelines.  
  • We have implemented a ‘stay home policy’ – should a team member become sick, they will notify their supervisor and not report to work.  
  • We have implemented a temporary remote-work policy that allows people to work from home full time, if the job allows. 
  • We have upgraded our office cleaning protocol. This includes a complete building disinfection every weekend, and enhanced daily cleaning, which includes a mid-day “touch-point” cleaning of high-traffic areas. 
  • Emphasis and awareness to good hygiene practices are being communicated to all team members.  
  • Effort is being made to conduct all business through video conferencing and virtual means.  
  • We have established a plan to ensure that team members can operate remotely in order to keep essential services of our company  functioning.  

U.S. Engineering is committed to the well-being of our clients, vendors, suppliers and team members and will continue to monitor this situation and adjust our position accordingly.
