WHK BioSystems Response to Coronavirus Pandemic
The world health community continues to monitor closely the spread of “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, TSE, TSE-OK and WHK are taking proactive steps to address the COVID-19 Pandemic as well as concerns expressed by you, our valued customers, vendors, and employees.
Safety In the Workplace
First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and adopt practices protecting the health of employees, customers, visitors, and others. We ask all employees to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace. Employees are reminded of the following:
- STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK! We cannot stress this enough.
- Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use hand sanitizer when available.
- Refrain from shaking hands.
- Cover your mouth whenever you sneeze or cough.
- Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
- Clean frequently touched surfaces with disinfectant wipes or sprays.
Business Continuity Plan & Checklist for Pandemic
In order to ensure the continuity of business, TSE and WHK have activated its Business Continuity Plan & Checklist for Pandemic. This comprehensive plan addresses steps we are taking across all of our Divisions to maintain all necessary functions of management, production, inventory, communications and IT, and shipping in the face of a pandemic. The Plan is flexible and will be modified and adjusted as necessary to respond to changing conditions in real-time. Customers with questions are encouraged to communicate with your normal Customer Service contact, who is ready to assist you. Employees are encouraged to contact any HR Representative.
Finally, let’s all remember that we have overcome challenges far greater than this in the past and will overcome this one as well. Thank you for your confidence in TSE and WHK Biosystems!
