Development of a Pandemic Disease Plan and the Appointment of a Coordinator

A pandemic disease plan or disease containment plan has been developed for Willamette Construction Services Inc. and a coordinator appointed.  There will be a workplace coordinator who will be responsible for dealing with disease issues and their impact at the workplace. This may include contacting local health department and health care providers in advance and developing and implementing protocols for response to ill individuals.



A pandemic disease will spread rapidly and easily from person to person, affecting all businesses due to absenteeism.  Businesses that are relied upon by other businesses will be facing the same massive absentee rates, and will be unable to provide essential components to maintain the daily operations.


Risk assessments to identify the essential/critical components of our business operation need to be conducted.  

Recognize that a pandemic includes:


  • Healthcare services not being available (they are already full at present with the usual ailments).

  • Schools, churches and other public places not being open.

  • Borders are partially or fully closed, especially airports, leaving people (our families, employees, business partners, customers and suppliers) “stranded”.

  • Essential materials and supplies may be limited due to distribution chains that are affected by the travel restrictions or absentee workers supporting those transportation means.

  • Essential services around utilities, food distribution/access and banking systems may not be at “normal levels”; access to cash flow could be tight.

  • People may not be willing to or able to come to work.



We will use our phone systems to text,e-mail or call employees with notifications and messages about alerts.  The use of the Willamette Construction Services Inc. web-site also will serve as a portal for sharing information with employees. 

Work At Home Considerations

There is a work-at-home and stay-at-home policy when employees are ill or are caring for others.  Flexible work policies will be developed as much as possible. Employees are encouraged to stay at home when ill, when having to care for ill family members or when caring for children when schools close, without fear of reprisal.  Tele-commuting or other work-at-home strategies will be developed.

Infection Control Measures

Guidelines for infection control are important to clarify the routes of transmission and the ways to interrupt transmission through measures of hygiene.  Infection control is an essential component of pandemic management and a component of public health measures.  Essential measures include:

  • Hand washing and use of hand sanitizers shall be encouraged by WCSI. supervision. Hand washing facilities, hand sanitizers, tissues, no touch trash cans, hand soap and disposable towels shall be provided by WCSI.


  • Workers are encouraged to obtain appropriate immunizations to help avoid disease. Granting time off work to obtain the vaccine is considered when vaccines become available in the community.


  • Social distancing including increasing the space between employee work areas of at least 6-10ft  and decreasing the possibility of contact by limiting large or close contact gatherings or meetings will be considered.


  • We will clean all areas that are likely to have frequent hand contact (like doorknobs, faucets, handrails) routinely and when visibly soiled.   Work surfaces will also be cleaned frequently using normal cleaning products.


    Additional examples of infection control measures include:

  • Stay at home when you are sick. If possible, stay away from work, school and from running errands. You will help others from catching your illness.

  • Cover your coughs and sneeze into tissue, or cough into your shirt sleeve.

  • Enhance existing housekeeping service by wiping down and disinfecting work areas (i.e. keyboards, telephones, desks, etc.) frequently.

  • Enhance housekeeping services for general public use areas several times throughout the work period.

  • Use personal protective equipment where appropriate to minimize exposure (i.e. gloves- for handling money, masks- for ill employees)

Course Description: 


The Heartsaver First Aid Course provides the skills to effectively assess and maintain life from the critical minutes immediately following an emergency until the arrival of emergency medical services personnel. The course also provides corporations with a complete health and safety training solution for First Aid, CPR and AED.


A testimonial from Casey Lane: 


Just recently on a Laneco job site an employee collapsed from medical complications and fell to the ground, another employee who was first aid and CPR trained rushed to his assistance.

The collapsed worker had no pulse and was not breathing, the responding worker started chest compressions for approximately 10 minutes and when the first responders arrived they were able to revive him. Thanks to the training and courage of a fellow worker the collapsed employee returned to work the next day!
