COVID-19 Preparedness Plan
To our valued customers,
Together, we are facing trying times. Wilmington Marine Center (WMC) and Wilmington Marine Service LLC (WMS) are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all our workers and customers, guests and visitors. To ensure we have a safe and healthy workplace, WMC and WMS has developed a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 in our workplaces and communities, and that requires full cooperation among our workers and management. Only through this cooperative effort can we establish and maintain the safety and health of all persons in our workplaces.
The COVID-19 Preparedness Plan is administered by Michael Loch (WMC), who maintains the overall authority and responsibility for the plan. However, management and workers are equally responsible for supporting, implementing, complying with and providing recommendations to further improve all aspects of this COVID-19 Preparedness Plan. WMC and WMS’s managers and supervisors have our full support in enforcing the provisions of this plan.
Our workers are our most important asset. WMC and WMS are serious about safety and health and protecting its workers. Worker involvement is essential in developing and implementing a successful COVID-19 Preparedness Plan. The WMC and WMS’s COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows the guidance developed by the state of North Carolina, which is based upon Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It addresses:
- Ensuring sick workers stay home and prompt identification and isolation of sick persons;
- Social distancing—workers must be at least six-feet apart;
- Worker hygiene and source controls;
- Workplace building and ventilation protocol;
- Workplace cleaning and disinfection protocol;
- Communications and training practices and protocol.
Please reach out to any of our team members with any questions and concerns. And please be reassured that at every level of our company, we will continue to be responsive and proactive to your needs. Best wishes and stay well.
Michael Loch, Manager WMC
