Responsibilities of Employees

Responsibilities of Employees Every person on our jobsites must help with the control and mitigation efforts. In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 at our jobsites, we all must play our part. As set forth below, the Company has instituted various housekeeping, social distancing, and other best practices at our jobsites. All persons on the jobsite must follow these. In addition, persons on the jobsite are expected to report to their managers or supervisors if they are experiencing signs or symptoms of COVID-19, as described below. FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH ALL PARTS OF THIS POLICY AND FOLLOW IT If you have a specific question about this Plan or COVID-19, please ask your manager or supervisor. If they cannot answer the question, please contact the COVID-19 Site Supervisor. Follow the Jobsite Protective Measures, housekeeping, social distancing, and other best practices described in this Plan.

PRACTICE SOUND PERSONAL HYGIENE Water, soap, and disposable hand towels will be available on every jobsite. Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Wash your hands regularly, before and after going to the bathroom, before eating or smoking, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. • Follow appropriate respiratory etiquette, which includes covering for coughs and sneezes. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 Learn the symptoms of COVID-19 and notify your supervisor if you develop symptoms or if you have a family member at home with COVID-19.

The symptoms are: • Coughing; • Fever (100.4°F or higher); • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing; and • Early symptoms such as chills, body aches, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and runny nose. If you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, or if you have a family member who does, or if you have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive person, DO NOT GO TO WORK. Instead, call your healthcare provider right away and notify your supervisor. Any employee/contractor/visitor showing symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to immediately leave the jobsite and return home.


JOBSITE PROTECTIVE MEASURES

JOBSITE PROTECTIVE MEASURES The Company has instituted the following protective measures at this jobsite.

FOLLOW REQUIRED SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS AT ALL TIMES Social distancing of at least six feet of separation must be maintained by every person on the jobsite at all times. All persons must avoid physical contact with others (no shaking hands). Where work trailers are used, only necessary persons should enter the trailers, and everyone should maintain social distancing. All in-person meetings will be limited. To the extent possible, meetings will be conducted by telephone. Weather permitting, in-person meetings limited to less than 10 people will be conducted outdoors with appropriate social distancing maintained at all times. Whenever possible, conduct bid walks/inspections via video, such as Skype. Everyone on site will be required to stagger breaks and lunches, to reduce the size of any group at any one time. Because masks must be worn by all persons at all times on the jobsite, we recommend that meals not be eaten on the jobsite.

SCREEN ALL WORKERS AT THE BEGINNING OF THEIR SHIFT FOR TEMPERATURE AND SYMPTOM CHECK Ask workers if they have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, or new loss of taste or smell. Thermometers used shall be ‘no touch’ or ‘no contact’ to the greatest extent possible. If a ‘no touch’ or ‘no contact’ thermometer is not available, either every worker can be provided its own thermometer, or a site thermometer may be used provided that the thermometer must be properly sanitized between each use. Any worker with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher is considered to have a fever and must be sent home. Workers may not begin work on a jobsite until a daily temperature check and symptom check has been completed. WEAR ALL REQUIRED PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) AT ALL TIMES ON THE JOBSITE In addition to regular PPE for workers engaged in various tasks (fall protection, hard hats, hearing protection), employers will also provide for use by employees:

Gloves: Gloves must be worn at all times by everyone on the jobsite. The type of glove worn should be appropriate to the task. If gloves are not typically required for the task, then any type of glove is acceptable, including latex gloves. Employees may not share gloves.

Eye protection: Eye protection must be worn at all times by everyone on the jobsite. Employees may not share eye protection.

Face masks must be worn at all times by everyone on the jobsite. The type of mask worn is governed by Washington Department of Health guidelines Link and by Washington Department of Labor and Industries safety rules. Employees may not share masks. In order to ensure strict compliance, we recommend that employees do not eat meals on the jobsite. NOTE: The CDC is currently not recommending that healthy people wear N95 respirators to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Employees should wear N95 respirators only if required by the work.

• You must make a thermometer available to any employee who needs one for their individual use to take their temperature before beginning work on the jobsite. Alternatively, a hands-free thermometer can be used on the jobsite. Daily temperature screening of all individuals is required. If appropriate PPE can’t be provided, the jobsite must be shut down. A worker who does not believe they are safe to work is allowed to remove themselves from the jobsite. SHARING TOOLS, RIDES, EQUIPMENT, FOOD AND BEVERAGES IS DISCOURAGED Workers should limit the use of co-workers’ tools and equipment. To the extent tools must be shared, the Company will provide alcohol-based wipes to clean tools before and after use. Objects handled by more than one worker must be cleaned when the items are transferred. Physically wiping the object so it is visibly clean (no obvious soiling, smearing, or streaks) is sufficient.
