Our employees have access to ongoing communication and updates regarding the status of COVID-19, and we are providing them with information about best-practices for prevention and health.

  1. Enhanced cleaning procedures have been put in place from buses used for transportation of employees to works stations in facilities, cafeterias, etc.
  2. Every employee has their temperature taken before entering our manufacturing complex.
  3. Employees are required to wash their hands before entering the workplace with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing 70% alcohol or wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  4. Employees are also required to go through a foot sanitation process before entering the facilities.
  5. All workers must wear personal protection equipment.
