Artworx Print's Response To COVID-19
At Artworx Print, we're committed to providing a safe experience for our team members, for our customers, and for our communities. We’re taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously, and we are doing everything that we can to minimize the risks to individual and public health.
What we're doing to protect our teams
Teams who work in our offices
We’ve instituted a mandatory work from home policy for all positions that can be performed effectively from home. Additionally, we’ve encouraged team members (or Inkers) to follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC for their own health and safety.
Teams who work in our stores and sales
To ensure public health and safety, we have decided to close our stores to the public, and we have suspended all in-person visits with our customers. Those team members and others remain available to assist customers by email, phone, and chat.
Teams who work in our production facilities
Our production facilities remain open, so the business can continue to operate, but we’ve taken a range of additional precautions to help ensure the safety of all team members working in those locations. First and foremost, Inkers in production facilities who believe they are at risk themselves or have at-risk family members at home have been asked to remain at home. Additionally, all Inkers who aren’t feeling well are being asked to be safe and stay home until they are healthy.
For those Inkers who are reporting to work at a production facility, we’ve implemented additional safety and social distancing measures to reduce their risk:
- We’ve hired full-time professional cleaners to deep clean our common areas on a continuing basis.
- We’ve provided disinfectant cleaning supplies to all team members for use on their own workspaces.
- We’re staggering our shifts, break times, and lunch times to make it easier to practice social distancing and reduce close interactions, and we have suspended all in-person meetings.
- We’re postponing all non-essential visitors to our sites.
- We’re concentrating our cleaning efforts on high-touch areas like tools, screens, door handles, light switches, etc.
Generous health plan and personal benefits
Beyond the specifics related to this issue, we offer Inkers a great health plan, generous amounts of personal leave, and flexible management style to meet unanticipated needs and ensure Inkers are protected and safe.
What we’re doing to protect our customers
Everything that we’re doing to protect our teams also benefits our customers. At our decoration facilities in Riverside our team members are following the CDC’s recommendations about hand washing, social distancing, and other hygiene policies. Please note that we also work with many outside vendors/partners as part of our supply chain and believe they are also following all CDC guidelines. Please contact us if you have specific questions.
