Over the last several weeks, we’ve had to quickly adjust to changes in all areas of our lives in support of one priority: the safety and well-being of our employees, our customers, and our communities. 

For over 75 years, the core of our business has been to provide skilled trades, professional services, and 24/7 response under all circumstances. Egan Company continues to operate daily, ensuring your needs are met. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, the Task Force team at Egan has also continued to evolve prevention, preparedness, and response plans.

The thoughtful and decisive action we’ve taken over the last two months remains in-place

Here’s a quick summary of what is active, in response to COVID-19: 

  • Business continuity – maintaining operations and minimizing disruptions in our shops, the field, and the office, disinfecting equipment and tools before delivery, and closely monitoring potential impacts in the supply chain.
  • Shop work area adjustments – employing practices that will help prevent the spread of germs and creating multiple and separate work areas in our shops and on the jobsite.
  • Precautions and key actions – following CDC guidance for precautionary measures, daily self-monitoring and screening protocol, social distancing, instituting field safety guides for jobsite and shop practices, supplying disinfectant/sanitizer/masks, practicing good hygiene, and cancelling nonessential meetings.
  • Team support – providing direct support for COVID-19 questions/concerns from employees and preparing in the case of potential exposure.
  • Industry relations – remaining connected with many organizations and suppliers to keep apprised of movements that could affect our work.

Reach out at any time – we’re here to support you with unwavering service

There is no doubt this pandemic has presented new challenges for everyone. As government officials begin to lift “Stay at Home” Executive Orders, Egan is here to help transition facilities to ensure all sites are operational. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you.

Thank you for working alongside us through this unprecedented time. We’ll continue to assess our plans and adopt new methodologies based on guidance from national and local governments and health authorities—and ask you to do the same.

Egan Company COVID-19 Response and Preparedness Plan

Friday, March 13th, 2020

We’re all experiencing an unusual time with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak developing throughout the United States and in our communities. Like you, the safety and well-being of our employees and their families, our customers, and our colleagues are of utmost priority.

Across the company, we have taken preventative measures to stay prepared

Below are the precautions and practices Egan has implemented over the last week to “slow the spread”:

  • Mobilizing a Task Force team that is meeting daily to closely monitor the situation, quickly implement safe working environment strategies as outlined by public health agencies, and continuing to develop our prevention, preparedness, and response plans
  • Encouraging all Egan employees to self-monitor daily for symptoms that could be associated with viral respiratory infections (fever, cough, shortness of breath) before coming into work
  • Enacting key CDC guidance, including social distancing, hygiene measures, and minimizing large social gatherings
  • Leveraging technology and various communication avenues to keep employees informed of changing expectations and updated tactical plans
  • Implementing screening protocol (cruise or recent travel, known exposure, symptoms)
  • Limiting all non-essential in-person meetings and placing restrictions on visitations
  • Encouraging remote work wherever viable

Asking for your support by following similar precautions

To ensure the safety of everyone on the job, Egan is asking all customers, partners, subcontractors, vendors/suppliers to also follow similar protocols. This includes:

  • Adherence to CDC and MDH guidance
  • Maintaining ongoing communication and informing Egan of any anticipated project changes or supply chain interruptions
  • Screening all visitors prior to visiting or working at any Egan site, shop, or office

We are also committed to doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19 and maintain a healthy workforce

At this time, Egan is not experiencing (and does not anticipate) delays in responding to customer needs. We will continue to uphold our commitment to providing responsive, high-quality, skilled trades services to keep our customers’ facilities and their systems operationally sound. We will also continue to serve our customers’ construction and fabrication needs, while implementing necessary precautions on jobsites to monitor and maintain the health of our workforce.

Our thoughts are with anyone who may be affected by the coronavirus. As the situation evolves, we will work alongside you as we all manage through this unique challenge together.
