While making cities safe has been the mission of the Optimum Seismic team since 1984, health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 situation have become very important to the clients and communities Optimum Seismic serves.

In response, the Optimum Seismic team acted swiftly to comply with new health and safety requirements issued by the City of Los Angeles and other jurisdictions:

  • Morning health checks are made before employees go out to job sites.
  • Construction employees carry a letter identifying them as “essential workers” under California guidelines
  • Social distancing is practiced by maintaining a 6-foot distance from others.
  • Large gatherings are precluded
  • Workers and visitors wear face coverings over their noses and mouths.
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE) is provided as appropriate.
  • An on-site COVID-19 supervisor at each site enforces health and safety requirements
  • “High-risk areas” where workers are forced to stand together, such as hallways, hoists and elevators, are controlled so social distancing is maintained
  • Interactions are minimized when picking up or delivering equipment or materials.
  • Work by trades is staggered to reduce density and maintain social distancing.
