At Stericycle, we are taking proactive measures to keep our team members, healthcare workers and communities safe in the wake of the current global Coronavirus situation. We have a global, cross-functional team monitoring the situation to ensure precautions are taken accordingly and communicated effectively.
To date at Stericycle:
- We have established a ban on all travel to high-risk countries. Additionally, we are limiting business travel to matters critical to safety, compliance, maintenance and essential customer support.
- We are communicating governmental guidance on infection prevention and when to self-isolate and seek medical assistance to each one of our team members, and we require them to follow this guidance.
- We have established procedures for the safe and compliant management and disposal of clinical waste arising from the treatment of patients with COVID-19.
- Our Environmental, Safety and Health and leadership teams are routinely communicating with our organisation and providing guidance on precautionary measures for both work and home.
At present, we will continue to service all our customers, taking into account the above precautions. Our regulatory and safety teams are continuously monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19, and we will adapt our practices as necessary should the situation evolve
