COVID-19 Coronavirus: Ideas and Guidelines for Manufacturing Site Access

Home / Blog / COVID-19 Coronavirus: Ideas and Guidelines for Manufacturing Site Access

by | Mar 18, 2020

As the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to impact manufacturers, the Polaris MEP team has been collecting tips from our network and sharing “best practice” guidelines. 

One of our Project Managers reports that a client has instituted several pandemic response procedures:

  1. Requiring all visitors to sign a declaration confirming they have not traveled to a “hot spot” country. 
  2. Monitoring employee temperatures.
  3. Adding new site access procedures to their emergency response plan. (An emergency response and preparedness plan is required for ISO certification and a general smart practice for any manufacturer.)

Another project manager recently found this visitor self-declaration questionnaire from Ford that could serve as inspiration for your company in controlling access to your manufacturing site. Ford’s questionnaire includes questions about travel and about current health, another best practice.
