Due to the COVID19 pandemic, Textron is communicating Textron’s expectations for any of your employees that may visit a Textron Business Unit site to deliver products and/or services.
Many locations within Textron have implemented employee and visitor screening processes and health and safety-related workplace rules that comply with CDC guidelines for use in preventing the spread of COVID19 in its facilities.
Visitor screening requirements may include, but aren’t limited to, restrictions on entry by supplier personnel visiting from overseas or from domestic locations with high levels of community spread, mandatory temperature checks and a self-certification that the supplier personnel has none of the known symptoms of COVID-19 as a pre condition of entry into any Textron facility.
Workplace rules may include but are not limited to, appropriate social distancing, required use of face masks when persons will be in close proximity, and mandatory cleaning of shared surfaces like those found in conference rooms etc.
Supplier personnel visiting any Textron facility during the COVID19 Pandemic are required to comply with all visitor screening requirements and workplace rules that have been implemented at the facility that the supplier is seeking to visit. Textron will not be responsible for any delay or expense associated with refusing to allow supplier personnel entry into a facility based on any failure to comply with specific site requirements. The supplier is responsible for verifying the specific site requirements prior to any visit and may need to be flexible for purposes of accommodating changing conditions around the local spread of COVID19.
In addition, for purposes allowing contract tracing, Textron expects suppliers to provide immediate notification to the applicable Textron Business Unit if it learns of any supplier personnel falling ill from COVID19 within four days of having visited a Textron facility to enable the business unit to take necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of its employees and contractors by disinfecting any suspect affected areas and to allows for testing of persons who may have come in contact with the infected supplier personnel.
