As cities and states begin to re-open and more injured workers are being transported to medical appointments and physical therapy facilities, MTI will continue to exercise caution. Ensuring the safety of our injured workers, drivers, and communities remain our priority. Over the course of the next few months, MTI will supply nearly 10,000 masks to our drivers and injured workers who do not have them.
We are requiring that all our drivers wear masks or face coverings and strongly recommend the injured worker does also. We will do our best to supply them to injured employees who we are transporting that do not have them.
Please see updated driver guidelines below:
- Continue to follow guidelines from your local and state government
- Use masks or cloth face coverings AT ALL TIMES when transporting an injured worker. Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it becomes damp and do not wear it again.
- If you have symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, dry cough, or severe tiredness, STAY HOME
- Disinfect and sanitize your car, door handles, and other frequently touched areas after each trip and as often as necessary to ensure the safety of your passengers
- Keep your car windows cracked or open when appropriate
- Maintain social distancing by asking all injured workers to sit in the back seat
We know that COVID-19 is spread from respiratory droplets when an infected person sneezes or coughs and that people can also catch it by touching contaminated surfaces. It’s important that you take every precaution you can to stay healthy. We hope these safety guidelines help empower you to make choices that protect you and the injured worker.
If you have any questions, or if you need new masks or additional car disinfectant, please contact Cesar Moreno, Transportation Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
