Royalty will provide support to all clients and prospects in deep cleaning, sanitation, and disinfection in accordance with guidance from the CDC and the use of hospital-grade disinfectants. Royalty is closely monitoring the most up-to-date and effective methodologies to determine the best approach for each client.

Each company and situation is unique and we will do our best to provide the best care in a timely and convenient manner.

Please keep in mind that disinfectants do not have a residual effect. Disinfectants kill the viruses they come in contact with, but if someone were to spread the virus by touching a surface with infected hands, the virus is certain to come back. It is best
to disinfect as frequently as possible within operational limits and Royalty is able and willing to work within your operational schedule.

Jobsite Guidelines for COVID-19

PRACTICE THE RECOMMENDED “SOCIAL DISTANCING” ‐ LIMIT ALL PERSON TO PERSON CONTACT

  • Avoid eating lunch and taking breaks in large groups

  • Avoid in‐person meetings if possible. In the case that an in‐person meeting is unavoidable, make sure to have it in a well‐ventilated area with sufficient space for attendees to distance themselves from one another (6 feet of separation).

  • For meetings such as huddles and toolbox talks, consider breaking them up into smaller group meetings versus one large meeting, ensuring 6 feet of separation from each other.

  • No visitors should be at the jobsites, unless fundamental to the execution of the work.

TRAVEL PROTOCOL

  • All employees are advised to discuss any travel plans with their supervisor prior to making any reservations.

  • Employees who do any traveling outside of their local area for any reason should disclose this to their Supervisor and be prepared for possible restrictions on their ability to return to work.

 

IF YOU BECOME SICK

  • If you are sick, we ask that you stay home. For the safety of all our employees and clients ‐ please immediately communicate with your Supervisor if you have fever, cough or difficulty breathing.

  • In addition, if you have a coworker displaying these symptoms, please alert your Supervisor.

  • Use an infrared thermometer if available to check for temperature

  • Supervisors should immediately separate an employee displaying fever, cough or difficulty breathing from other employees, and then send that employee home.

  • Move potentially infectious people to a location away from workers, customers, and other visitors.

  • Take steps to limit spread of the person’s infectious respiratory secretions. This may include providing them a facemask and asking them to wear it, if they can tolerate doing so.

  • Restrict the number of personnel entering location of infectious person.

  • Protect workers in close contact with the sick person by using personal protective equipment.

  • The affected person should seek medical care as appropriate and stay away from others.

  • Employees will not return to our jobsites or offices until they show no signs of illness or fever, without the use of a fever reducing medicine, for 48 hours.

  • If an employee has had close contact with an individual that has confirmed COVID‐19, that employee will not be allowed to return to the office or jobsite until they have been symptom free for 14 days

Disinfectants & Chemicals Guidelines

  • Products with EPA‐approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expected to be effective against COVID‐19 based on data for harder to kill viruses. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method and contact time, etc.)

  • Workers who conduct cleaning tasks shall protect themselves from exposure to blood, certain body fluids, and other potentially infectious materials by using PPE, an example would be, N95 – is the current respirator we use for silica and dust or HEPA respirator, gloves, face shield and safety glasses
