Risk Management

Dedication to Safety

The goal of the Risk Management Committee is to review, develop, and maintain policies and practices that promote a safe and healthy workplace for all 49er Shops employees, customers, and guests. The Risk Management Committee has three primary objectives. The first is to mitigate any workplace risk by ensuring compliance with local, state, federal, and CSU regulatory standards. The second objective is to develop and maintain safety and health training programs that address the unique needs of our various operations. The third objective is to assess the financial impact of risk mitigation and to strategize opportunities to maximize corporate wide outcomes. 

The Coronavirus Pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our organization. We have not been immune to the challenges our country and the world has faced, in providing efforts and best practices to mitigate risk. Below are highlights of our efforts to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, and guests. It includes a detailed COVID Response Plan, and links to efforts in conjunction with our CSU campus. 

 

Response to COVID-19

COVID-19 Prevention Program

Our COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) is designed to control exposures to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that may occur in our workplace. These standards and procedures are developed in response to CDC and Cal/OSHA regulatory guidelines, as well as regulatory compliance through the local health department and campus safety requirements. 

City of Long Beach Social Distancing Protocol

The City of Long Beach requires a Social Distancing Protocol for all its employees and guests. Similar to the COVID-19 Response Plan, it provides high level detail of our efforts, that align with the requirements set by the Long Beach Health Department and local government

Our Employee Training Program

Training is critical, as we all work in a new environment. The Shops has always prioritized the health and safety of its employees, but this is now at a greater forefront, more than ever. Employees are required to complete the following trainings

All employees

  • General COVID Awareness Training

All supervisors and management

  • General COVID Awareness Training
  • Supervisor Guide - Return to Work
  • Alliant Risk Management - COVID Awareness Training 

Our Employee Symptom Survey

It is critical that as we continue to work, and begin to reopen locations we need to ensure that all employees and guests are safe and well. In partnership with the campus, we are asking that all 49er Shops employees and vendors who are coming to work, and into our locations complete and Employee Symptom Check before they report to work. Ideally, this should be completed at home. The survey is accessible via the campus Single-Sign-On. Employees that are sick are asked to stay home and to not report to work.
