JG Kern Team Members

We recognize that these are difficult times for everyone so we wanted to provide some additional information.  Please understand that J.G. Kern is doing what it takes to provide you with a safe and healthy work environment.


Governor Whitmer’s Pause To Save Lives Plan:

We wanted to touch base regarding Governor Whitmer’s latest COVID update. Manufacturing will remain open so we will be continuing business as usual. However, we must continue wearing masks, washing hands regularly, and social distancing. Environmental will continue spraying down high tough points throughout the day. Please see HR with any questions.

أردنا أن نتواصل مع القاعدة فيما يتعلق بآخر تحديث لـ COVID من Governor Whitmer. سيبقى التصنيع مفتوحًا ، لذا سنواصل العمل كالمعتاد. ومع ذلك ، يجب أن نستمر في ارتداء الأقنعة وغسل اليدين بانتظام والتباعد الاجتماعي. ستستمر البيئة في رش النقاط الصعبة العالية طوال اليوم. يرجى مراجعة الموارد البشرية مع أي أسئلة.

Deep Cleaning & Sanitizing Process:

J.G. Kern has purchased and has been using sanitizing misting fans to disinfect the surfaces of the plant. These fans cover 4,000 sq. ft. at a time and are rotated multiple times throughout the day. The product that we are using to mix with water and create the mist in the fans is called Non-Acid Bowl and Bath Disinfectant. Research shows that the product is safe to use in the plant setting and will kill 99.99% of all viruses and bacteria including coronavirus. See the SDS in the Quality Lab on Non-Acid Bowl and Bath Disinfectant for answers to your questions and important information on the product.

Furthermore, all high-touch and common areas are sprayed down manually by our Environmental team periodically throughout the day.

If you become sick or find out you may have been exposed to someone else, either at J.G. Kern or outside of work, please notify HR immediately. We want to act as proactively as possible in order to make sure high risk areas are sanitized immediately.
