CAITLIN MADDOCK-BAHR | Social Media & Digital Strategy Manager
The work has changed. We’re all in uncharted territory right now. However, our dedication to the safety, health and well-being of our people, our dealers, our customers and the communities they serve remains unchanged. Our priority is providing information and resources to help you navigate through these difficult times—especially as it pertains to your industry and your business.
Our association partners in various industries, from construction to waste management to agriculture, have created useful tips and tools for you and your business during this time.
The National Demolition Association (NDA) has provided information that can help you adjust to the recent changes that have come about in the past several weeks. NDA has a guide that covers all the essentials, from employee resources to ways to donate.
For those in the scrap recycling industry, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI) has a guide for staying safe on the job, including ways to protect yourself and others from spreading sickness while at work.
Disposing of waste safely on the job is more important now than ever. The National Waste & Recycling Association created a waste disposal guide that addresses whether you need to take extra precautions when handling waste.
Check out this helpful site from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). If your business is facing obstacles or if you’re looking for resources like webinars or podcasts to share with your crew, NALP has you covered.
NALP is also committed to keeping industry job listing resources updated during this time to further help landscapers who may already be feeling the effects of current events. Visit their site to view the latest job openings (or to send along to someone you know).
For landscape professionals looking to share best practices with other landscapers, they’ve also created a Facebook Group.
For composters, the U.S. Composting Council has created a handy guide that shares more information about what precautions must be taken on the job.
For the cattle ranchers, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has a hub with the most up-to-date news impacting the cattle farming industry.
The American Farm Bureau has a wealth of industry resources as well, including responses from fellow farmers about how they are handling current events.
A big concern we’ve heard from our customers is keeping their employees and operators safe and healthy while the work continues. Here are some tips for all industries to help everyone feel safe on the job.
Caterpillar has published a guide for disinfecting the cab contact surfaces for your equipment.
We know the work has changed, that your day-to-day lives have changed. It has for us, too. We’re working hard to keep our people safe and want to help provide resources for you to do the same. To all of you out there doing the work to support critical infrastructure and essential services, we see you. Thank you for all you do.
