Our Commitment to a Safe Return to Work
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. 
Saint Louis Area Fire Department Receives $2,000 Grant from Wolverine Pipe Line Company
Saint Louis, Michigan - Wolverine Pipe Line Company (Wolverine) has awarded Saint Louis Area Fire Department a $2,000 grant to support the Department’s fundraiser to replace and upgrade equipment. The check was part of Wolverine’s Good Neighbor Grant Program, where money is used to support first responders and other non-profit organizations in communities along Wolverine’s pipeline route.

“The check granted was critical to freeing up our equipment fund for upgrades like the replacement of a 1996 fire engine,” said Chief Bill Coty of the Saint Louis Area Fire Department. “The funds will go towards the replacement of $32,000 worth of fire attack and supply hose. We are grateful to sponsoring companies like Wolverine who contribute to our success. This kind contribution completed the funding needed for this project and will serve our community for many decades.” Read More
