Return to Physical Workspace Procedures
Weatherford continues to actively monitor the risks associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic. In those facilities where we have transitioned to remote-working arrangements, we have commenced planning for a return to the physical workplace. Our approach is one of caution and prudence and will be linked to a number of factors including the disease profile locally, expert advice from organizations such as the CDC, and also local regulatory requirements.
Measures under consideration include an incremental return staged over several weeks, enhanced hygiene arrangements in all facilities, access controls comprising of thermal scanning/health questionnaires, and the widespread implementation of measures to afford social distancing as examples.
Additionally, we have commenced the procurement of the resources necessary to enable us to transition back to the physical workplace such as the cloth face covers recommended by the CDC.
At the point where we do decide to transition back into any facility or office, active supervision and coaching of our employees will be provided by our Safety and Service Quality team members.
It is emphasized that we are in the planning stages only and any decision beyond this will be made with the safety and welfare of our employees and customers as the principal consideration.
