As our country reopens, so do Schaefer’s offices. With the health + wellbeing of our team members our top priority, Schaefer has adopted a phased approach to returning to the office. Future phases are still being developed in order to adapt to the latest information + resources following local, state + federal guidelines. We’ll continue to update this post as we progress.

June 29, 2020 | Phase II

New for Phase II:
Welcome guests back into our offices with direction to follow the same protocols we expect of ourselves

We continue to:

  • Require masks
  • Require a wellness check including a temperature log to be completed prior to entering the office
  • Post maximum capacities for meeting + open collaboration spaces
  • Label a one-way path where feasible
  • Provide + promote the frequent use of hand washing, hand sanitizer + cleaning supplies when touching shared surfaces + equipment
  • Place six ft markers from high traffic equipment
  • Use a touch-free coffee machine
  • Set best practices to bring shelf-stable food to discourage refrigerator + microwave use
  • Discourage shared food
  • Close ping pong tables, dart boards + other shared recreational activities

June 8, 2020 | Phase I begins

While we echoed local recommendations to continue to work remotely if possible, we reopened our offices inviting team members to return by their choice (while following maximum capacity guidelines). We shared our new guidelines in advance so that only those willing + able to oblige would opt to return. During this first phase, we have:

  • Required a wellness check including a temperature log to be completed prior to entering the office
  • Mandated masks at all times; two reusable masks per person have been provided
  • Posted maximum capacities for meeting + open collaboration spaces; virtual meetings will start automatically
  • Labeled a one-way path where feasible
  • Provided + promoted the frequent use of hand washing, hand sanitizer + cleaning supplies when touching shared surfaces + equipment
  • Placed six ft markers from high traffic equipment
  • Replaced our touch screen coffee machine with a touch-free product
  • Set best practices to bring shelf-stable food to discourage refrigerator + microwave use
  • Discouraged shared food (a challenge when donuts run deep within our culture)
  • Closed ping pong tables, dart boards + other shared recreational activities
  • Asked that no guests enter our offices

While our team transitions back, clients + partners should expect no changes in our ability to provide quality engineering designs in a timely + collaborative manner. We have the technology available to effectively connect us.

As always, please reach out to us with any questions you may have, with our local phone numbers available on our contact page.
