3D perception (3DP) is continually monitoring public health communications for updates and guidance about COVID-19. We hold the welfare of people first and foremost and recognize there are potential business impacts. Of course, we want to do our best to minimize business disruption and continue to move ongoing programs forward. It is also very important to 3DP to contribute to the worldwide community effort in containing and the spread of the virus. Early identification of risks and open communication are the strongest defense to avoid disruption. 3D perception is taking the following measures:
HEALTH & SAFETY
We are evaluating 3DP employee travel and restricting this to business-critical only. Internally, 3DP uses videoconferencing or teleconferencing when possible for work-related meetings and gatherings. In the rare instance when videoconferencing or teleconferencing is not possible, 3DP holds meetings in open, well-ventilated spaces continuing to maintain a distance of 6 feet apart and require cloth face coverings to be worn and hand sanitizer is provided.
Visitors to 3DP facilities in both the United States and Norway will need to complete a COVID-19 prescreening form prior to visit. Please coordinate with your 3DP POC for this process. Visitors originating from or traveling through at-risk countries will require 3DP senior level leadership approval. Visitors are provided access to tissues and no-touch trash cans, disposable face masks and hand sanitizer for their use at reception.
In addition to visitor and travel management, note that we regularly sanitize working and common spaces in our offices to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19, and regularly share exposure-prevention protocols to reinforce healthy behaviors.
Individual 3DP Program Managers will be contacting customers with active or upcoming programs to align on affected/updated scheduling and mitigation strategies to address the needs of your programs in an optimal and safe manner. We will do our best to be flexible to find alternative solutions, including remote support sessions in lieu of on-site visits when possible. We also ask our customers to inform 3DP of any preventative measures taken on sites we are scheduled to visit.
Employees adhere to the following protocols outlined in the 3DP COVID-19 Prevention Checklist when performing work at customer sites:
If you become aware of potential adverse impacts to the performance of contracts for 3DP, including potential delays in deliveries, transportation, availability of materials or other impacts, please advise your 3DP POC as quickly as possible. Include in that communication all available facts including efforts planned to mitigate any potential impact.
Nothing in this message is intended to alter the terms and conditions of any contract you hold with 3D perception, nor serve as the basis for any claim, adjustment to price or schedule or other legal action.
COVID-19 presents an ongoing dynamic business situation for us all. Please stay in communication with your 3DP POC.
Thank you for your time and attention to the matter.
Knut Krogstad, CEO
