Due to the recent guidance issued by Illinois Governor Pritzker instructing residents to “shelter in place,” PRI has made arrangements to continue to serve and support our customers with the critical systems they need, while limiting the number of employees in the building. PRI engineers, manufactures and supports essential biowaste treatment systems for government, pharmaceutical, diagnostic and healthcare sectors, and is making arrangements to continue to meet customer requirements amid the global pandemic.
We have outlined the following plans to reduce exposure and maintain operational status through this “shelter in place” directive. Technology has been provided and arrangements have been made for as many office employees as possible to allow them to work from home, while still having access to networked files and databases. Service and support staff is being equipped to be able to answer phones and support tickets while working remotely, while our field service team is unable to travel. Our manufacturing team will split, and begin working in shifts to limit the number of people in the building at one time, while still aiming to meet existing deadlines wherever possible. These arrangements, coupled with our existing in-house daily sterilization wipe-downs, reduced in-person meetings, and visitor restrictions will allow us to maintain a safe work environment while complying with health guidelines.
During this pandemic, it is critical that we do as much as we possibly can to comply with government and safety official guidance, while also continuing to provide essential business needs for our customers, particularly those in government public health and safety, pharmaceutical and healthcare.
