Two decades of experience in Septic and Sewer Construction has taught me a lot of lessons about about septic and sewer system design, construction and maintenance. Four years studying and a college degree in the Engineering part of this business and ten years more running my own company have shown me how to do this job better than most. This blog contains my thoughts on all things Septic in Middlesex and New London counties. Contact us to suggest a subject for our next blog post.
We are working during the Connecticut COVID-19 Crisis
As per Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont’s executive order 7H, excavation and septic services companies such as Engineered Septic & Sewer are deemed Essential Businesses and are allowed to operate during this uncertain and disconcerting time.
While we are relieved to know that we can continue to provide our customers with essential excavation, septic tank and sewer construction as well as septic and sewer cleaning and maintenance services, we also know this comes with a responsibility to the community.
Therefore, it’s important that we make sure our customers as well as the community at large know that we will operate during this period with the utmost concern for our employees, customers and neighbors in mind.
What does this mean?
First, while going about our professional duties, we will employ safe interaction practices as per the CDC. We have reviewed the OSHA guidelines for operating a business during the Covid-19 outbreak and have trained all employees on operating safely in this new environment.
Second, when it comes to customer interactions and jobsite practices, we have adopted a “Covid-19 Hand’s Free” process from initial customer interaction to job completion. To protect both our employees and our customers, we will employ common-sense protocols such as employee fever monitoring, hand and sneeze/coughing sanitation practices as well as maintaining safe work distances between our workers and customers. You can learn more about these jobsite practices in guidance posted by The Builders Association.
Finally, we realize that many of our business acquaintances, friends and neighbors have been asked by Governor Lamont to remain at home during the foreseeable future. We here at Engineered Septic & Sewer view our ability to work as both a privilege and a responsibility. We have emphasized this with each of our employees and have asked them – safely – to check with neighbors to determine if they can bring anything to them while travelling back home from work.
If you have any needs during this time, please let us know. We are certain we will all get through this together; in the meantime please take care of yourselves and do whatever is necessary for your health and well-being.
