Coronavirus Preparedness Plan
The well-being of our employees, customers, and community is our top priority. Our executive team is closely monitoring reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and additional government agencies to ensure that we are staying up to date on the evolving health and safety risks of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As news about the COVID-19 continues to unfold, we feel it is important to provide you with an update on our preparedness and ability to serve you.
Our Commitment to You
Our team is committed to keeping you up-to-date with the latest information regarding COVID-19 and what products can be used to disinfect spaces. We are prepared to continue serving all our clients’ needs throughout this crisis. Our team is taking prudent and common-sense precautions to prevent the spread of illness and we are strictly following and in some cases surpassing, all CDC guidelines for facility cleanliness. We have communicated protocols with all temporary and full-time staff and continue to reinforce and reiterate best practices.
We are also working with our manufacturing partners to help safeguard the healthcare industry by getting them the products they need when they need it. Due to the significantly increased demand for products related to infection prevention, and since all manufactures of these products have placed distribution on allocation, Beshet Supply has implemented an allotment policy until further notice. Our policy:
- Serve our existing healthcare customers first and foremost
- Ensure we do not create inventory challenges down the road
Our procurement team is exploring all available products to meet current demand, so during this surge period, a few products may be offered in substitution. It is up to the customer to determine if the substituted product will satisfy their specific need. All substitutions will require customer approval.
A shortlist of items affected include certain brands of disinfectant sprays, liquids and wipes, and all hand sanitizer products.
While the allotment policy is in place, Beshet Supply will continue to review all open orders and release products as inventory becomes available. Please continue to only order quantities needed to meet current demand!
All new customers purchasing items on allocation are subject to order review and approval.
