Our Commitment to a Safe Working Environment
Thanks to the relentless efforts of healthcare workers, emergency responders, and other COVID-19 heroes, many states are recommending businesses return to full capacity in the workplace. Wolverine Pipe Line Company falls into this category and is currently implementing its return to work plan while following CDC and MIOSHA guidelines. With safety as our top priority and core value as a company, we are keeping the following protocols in place in order to achieve the safest possible outcome:

  • Pre-Screen: Measure employee temperature and assess symptoms prior to start of work
  • Regular Monitoring: Employees complete “Are You Sick?” questionnaires upon arriving to work, self-monitor for symptoms, and report concerns to supervisors
  • Wear a Mask: Employees wear face masks when unable to maintain a proper social distance of six (6) feet outdoors and in enclosed spaces
  • Social Distance: Employees maintain six (6) feet and practice social distancing as work duties permit in the workplace
  • Disinfect and Clean Workspaces: Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting in all common areas

For the past year, we have been doing our part to reduce the spread of the virus. With a vaccine that is becoming more readily available, we are all confident that steps can be further taken to protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors.
