Our Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Dear Valued Customers,

As we continue to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ahern is committed to helping you continue your operations. 

You rely on us to deliver essential services every day to your facility and job site. Our 140-year history shows that we are resilient and have the resources to help keep your business safely operating and we will continue to be here to support you during these challenging times.
 
Below are the measures J. F. Ahern Co. has taken, in addition to those shared in our last communication, in order to serve you while keeping our employees’ health and safety a top priority.
 
We have implemented and will continue to:
 
  • Keep our Response Team active to work with internal and external stakeholders, to coordinate and implement our prevention, preparedness and response plans.
  • Monitor all CDC, OSHA, and State and Local Health Authorities guidance to ensure we have a real-time assessment of developing events to mitigate any potential impact.
  • Increase distribution of critical PPE and personal hygiene materials to all field and shop employees, while continuing to offer donations to our community healthcare partners.
  • Enhance screening procedures to ensure essential onsite personnel or vendors with illness or potential exposure are prohibited from entering our facilities or jobsites.
  • Implement and comply with applicable state and customer specific temperature screening protocols.
  • Manufacture and distribute cloth face coverings to all employees.
  • Work cooperatively with our trade association and jobsite partners.
  • Scale up our network capacity to handle the large demand of remote connections while also ensuring our employees have the equipment necessary to perform their job without downtime.
While COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation, I am inspired and incredibly proud of our employees who continue to safely serve you, our customers, and communities. While there is still much uncertainty, I am encouraged by how our employees have shown they can rise to meet the challenge and will continue to do so.
 
We wish for your continued health and safety and appreciate the ability to serve you.

 

Sincerely,
Tony Ahern
President and Chief Operating Officer
