Focus on Safety

COVID 19 has changed our personal interactions and Lakeside is doing a lot to make sure you feel safe. Here’s what you should know:

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!

Most importantly, know that we’re here for you. Whatever you need from us, we want to provide it. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

WE’VE DRAMATICALLY INCREASED OUR SAFETY & SANITATION PROCEDURES

For now, and for beyond the crisis, we’ve conducted extensive training for our field, manufacturing, and office staff.  The health and safety our employees and customers is our first priority. We ask you to assist us in ensuring a collaborative effort while working onsite. If you have a project that we will be involved in, please understand the following:

  • Before we arrive on site, you will be contacted to participate in a survey regarding health and safety those related to the job site. We will need a phone number to reach the person who will be on site at time of template, and at time of install.
  • Sanitization practices are essential. Before our arrival, you must sanitize all surfaces our workers will come in contact with. We will do the same before we leave.
  • On site, we will not be conducting “business as usual”. This means some of our typical customer service practices (signing documents, shaking hands, etc.) will not be happening. We apologize in advance for the lack of personal interaction during this unprecedented time. Please know this is essential for keeping everyone safe.
  • When our workers arrive, it is important that you are located in a separate room, until we leave, to minimize the exposure between individuals

Our new procedures are receiving high praise from our customers. Our most recent blog talks about precisely what we are doing to keep everyone safe. See below for some feedback from recent jobs:

Lakeside Surfaces Inc. is committed to ensuring that we are following social distancing practices and other mitigation measures to protect our employees and customers. The following practices include, but are not limited to:

  1. Restricting the number of workers present on premises to no more than is necessary.
  2. Promoting remote work to the fullest extent possible
  3. Increasing standards of facility cleaning and disinfection to limit possible employee exposure to COVID-19.
