Billings, MT Plumbing Company Recommends Safety for Plumbing, HVAC, and Construction

March 26, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Billings, Mo. – As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread through communities, the safety and welfare of workers and customers in the plumbing, HVAC, and construction industries remain in the high-risk category of catching the virus. A Billings, MT plumbing company, Williams Plumbing, has taken immediate steps to ensure the safety of their residential and civil workers, but advise that there is still a lot to learn.

The company has shared a list on their Blog adapted from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) of industry-specific best practices and resources to follow over the next several weeks and months.

Agencies across the globe agree one of the most proactive and immediate measures that can be taken is to increase the frequency of handwashing. It is recommended that individuals use just soap and water washing for 20 seconds. This is especially true after being in public places or after blowing one's nose, sneezing, or coughing. If one is unable to use water and soap, the next best alternative is to use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.

Due to the national shortage of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, all of Williams plumbers and service technicians are supplied with their supply of hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes and advise all companies and trades professionals to do the same, if possible. Additionally, Williams technicians are avoiding physical contact, such as shaking hands with customers and co-workers.

The company acknowledges that much of this kind of behavior is a habit, however, WHO has advised respiratory viruses like COVID-19 are highly contractable through skin-to-skin contact. Contact with eyes, nose, or mouth with an unwashed hand can lead to becoming infected with the virus. They instead suggest wave, nodding, bowing or generally be neighborly from a distance.

The CDC says coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. While it appears that infection is more likely person-to-person, they still recommend cleaning and disinfecting regularly used surfaces and items. This includes tools and materials. The Billings, MT HVAC company suggests that these items are first cleaned to remove dirt and lower germ count, then followed up with a chemical disinfectant to kill the remaining germs.

Furthermore, Williams is advising all their technicians to screen potentially infected customers by asking the “Big Three” questions to protect residential plumbers and service technicians from contracting and spreading the virus. These questions include:

“Have you or anyone in your house traveled out of state in the last 14 days?”

“Have you or anyone in your household recently experience a fever, runny nose, sore throat, or cough?”

“Have you or anyone you have been in recent contact with tested positive for COVID-19?”

If customers answer “Yes” to any of these questions, then service may be denied and delayed for a minimum of two weeks — as determined by the service technician.

Williams Plumbing and Civil Construction of Billings, MT remains committed to the safety and service of their customers and employees alike throughout this crisis.

Solidarity march against anti-Semitism, acts of hate

Apr 5, 2020

NEW YORK — Throngs of demonstrators joined by elected officials walked solemnly across the Brooklyn Bridge in a solidarity march Sunday against anti-Semitism and all acts of hate. The “No Hate, No Fear" march was organized by New York's Jewish community in the wake of recent anti-Semitic attacks, including a knife attack at a Hanukkah celebration north of New York City that left five people wounded and a fatal shootout at a kosher grocery in Jersey City, New Jersey. The crowds of participants jammed the streets in lower Manhattan as they waited their turns to get across the bridge. “It...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Apr 5, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Apr 5, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Apr 5, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
