Doing our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19
American Transmission Co. cares about the health and safety of our employees, contingent workers, contractors and visitors. We have implemented a number of safety practices in our workplace and in the field to help ensure we have a healthy workplace and minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Prior to visiting or working at an ATC facility or field site, please familiarize yourself with the following safety measures and resources, which have been developed with the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other agencies:
Prior to reporting to an ATC work location, please conduct a weekly, anonymous, self-health assessment. Use the link below to access the interactive form.
SELF-HEALTH ASSESSMENT FORM
Record the name of anyone with whom you have had close contact during work activities, along with the date and location of the interaction. Capturing this information in ATC’s electronic form linked below will expedite our ability to trace exposure in the unfortunate event that someone tests positive for COVID-19. This information will be retained for 14 days. Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of someone for 15 minutes or more.
CONTACT TRACING FORM
Face coverings are required to be worn at all ATC facilities by anyone who is not fully vaccinated or who has not provided proof of vaccination. Visitors who are fully vaccinated and present proof of their vaccination when entering can choose to go without a face covering while in ATC facilities. ATC follows the CDC’s definition of a fully vaccinated person as someone for whom at least two weeks has passed after receiving the final dose of an FDA-approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccine.
A face covering may be removed only when an individual is alone in an enclosed room, it causes a safety or health issue, or temporarily to eat or drink. If you wish to bring your own face covering, it needs to be multiple layers, with an inside layer of a tightly woven natural fiber. If you do not have one, ATC will provide one.
Face covering requirements may vary across different field site locations. Contact ATC Safety or your ATC point of contact to determine specific requirements of the site you are visiting.
Physical distancing is essential to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends staying at least 6 feet from other people and avoiding large groups. Signage and floor markings are displayed in common areas throughout ATC facilities to support physical distancing.
Cleaning and sanitizing
ATC has enhanced cleaning at all facilities and applied anti-microbial treatments to office surfaces. Hand sanitizer and other sanitizing equipment has been provided at each location to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Please help keep ATC facilities clean by following CDC guidelines for hand hygiene, covering coughs and sneezes, avoiding handshakes and minimizing touch of common surfaces and touch points.
If you have questions about any of ATC’s COVID-19 safety measures, contact ATC Safety or your ATC point of contact.
