PIP® COVID-19 Update

It has been a few months since the country has been dramatically transformed by the current global pandemic. During this period, we have learned a lot about the importance of safety protocols and educating employees on workplace best practices that keep them safe and productive. PIP® continues to comply with federal and local state directives to do our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. The protocols enacted in mid-March continue to be effective in keeping our employees and their families safe while enabling us to efficiently serve our customers.

As a Safety company, it is our duty to not only provide critical PPE to frontline and essential workers, but to serve as a role model so workers understand the purpose and capabilities of the PPE they are using – and how it supports new safety protocols. As an essential business with twenty plants and warehouses across the world, we’ve continued operations over the past month – thankfully, without incident – under elevated safety protocols and by utilizing the appropriate PPE for employees who remain on the job at these critical locations helping to maintain our flow of goods.

This pandemic is not over, but we are seeing some states – primarily those less affected – engage in preparations to reopen under very strict government guidelines. Our Operations team possesses firsthand experience with procedures related to working while maintaining safe distances and practicing proper hygiene to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We have trained our employees and continue to reinforce the fact that this is the new reality for the foreseeable future.

By leveraging these best practices and our experience in maintaining a robust supply line, we are announcing the second phase of our PIP® ESSENTIALS™ program which is focused on doing our part to help restart and reopen America. To support this, we have developed a succinct best practices guide that we will freely share with our distributor partners to help them advise customers on basic protocols related to safe distancing, hygiene and new PPE. We are calling this our PIP® ESSENTIALS™ SafetyBook which was a collaboration between key members of our Operations, Marketing and Product Development teams.

Like you, we mourn the loss of so many lives and continue to be concerned about the ongoing effects of this virus. We remain dedicated to doing our part in the Safety industry and within the communities our employees are part of to help beat the virus and keep American workers safe.
