TrueBlue’s Coronavirus Action Plan: Ensuring Workplace Health and Safety

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to make headlines worldwide. At TrueBlue, the health and safety of our employees, associates and clients is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation in each of our global markets and operating with an abundance of caution.

Policy Approach:

In setting policies and taking action related to the coronavirus, our intent is, at a minimum, to follow guidance from relevant authorities such as the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Information Sharing:

We have established a coronavirus information hub for our employees and are sending ongoing communications to clients and associates to help them stay informed and protected.

Healthy Work Environment:

As part of our usual protocol, TrueBlue promotes a healthy work environment by encouraging sick workers to stay home and by providing office cleaning services and hygiene supplies such as hand sanitizers.

Client Support:

TrueBlue is committed to supporting our clients’ current and emerging business needs throughout the coronavirus outbreak, and is ready to provide cleaning, sanitation and other services.

Business Continuity:

We have well-planned and routinely exercised capabilities to provide world-class service regardless of environmental challenges. This includes crisis management, emergency response and business continuity plans, as well as client-specific protocols. We offer remote work options and are ready to implement regional and centralized command centers when needed.

Associate Protocol:

If an associate has been diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19, that associate will be not be assigned to jobs for a minimum of 14 days and must be in good health before returning to work. If an associate is diagnosed with COVID-19, we will immediately inform all clients the associate worked for over the prior 14 days, other associates who were on the jobs, our branch staff, our leaders and other stakeholders. If a client’s employee is diagnosed with COVID-19, we will immediately notify associates who were assigned to the facility where the employee worked and other stakeholders.

Supply Management:

We have implemented rapid-reporting cycles to enable us to quickly identify potential candidate or worker availability shortages and are enhancing talent benches for in-demand worker types.

Travel Policy:

We have temporarily suspended international travel and have restricted all non-critical domestic travel.
