We’re ready when you need us!
• Many of our customers have inquired about potential service interruptions, so we wanted to take this time to let you know how we are planning and responding.
• We are not currently experiencing disruptions and are providing the service our customers have come to expect. If there are changes to the recommendations or restrictions placed on businesses that could materially impact any service levels, we will keep you informed.
• In response to the COVID-19 situation, we are monitoring updates closely and following best practices as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as local, state, federal and provincial authorities. We continue to update our Pandemic Plan as conditions change. Additionally, we have a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan designed to help us to continue to deliver the highest levels of service to our customers.
• Our Operations Team meets daily to provide all areas with the latest updates to our plans, and the precautionary measures we are taking to maintain safety and operational readiness.
• Badger has taken immediate steps to limit the possible exposure to our team and clients by dispatching single operator crews. We have taken this action to ensure appropriate social distancing for our employees. Should your project require additional operators, we will accommodate those needs by dispatching the extra person in a separate crew truck. Please contact your local Badger office should your project mandate a two-person crew.
• The safety of our people and clients will continue to guide us, and the decisions we make as we all work together to get through and beyond this current situation.
