The management has rolled out a comprehensive program that includes safety measures and social distancing protocols to protect over 3,000 employees working at the plant in the post-lockdown world. The facility has been integrated with layers of protection to ensure the safety of all employees, this includes cleaning, disinfecting and social distancing and regular monitoring of employees' health status.
All employees and visitors will go through a temperature check when entering and exiting the facility and everyone has to submit a self-assessment questionnaire digitally. All employees have been educated about the importance of maintaining social distance and regular sanitising of the facility. The company has also provided medical support inside the facility and outside as well. All employees must wear PPE kits and adhere to safety protocols. The company has also managed to get a dedicated ambulance with a ventilator for emergency situations. The company has appointed a 50-member task force of employee volunteers who will supervise the employees while working in the facility. The company will closely monitor the developments in the near future and take actions accordingly while working in the post-lockdown world.
Ravi Gogia, president at FIAPL, said, "We have restarted operations with a lean workforce. Our absolute priority is the protection of employees, ensuring we provide them with a work environment that maintains the highest standards of safety, health and hygiene. Our responsibility is to also educate them on a regimen they should follow after work hours so that their families are also protected."
He added, "We have also activated our supply chain which is vital to ensuring smooth and efficient operations. Our aim is to gradually step up with assured supplies and a careful increase in the density of our working population. We hope to reach a regular production schedule as the value chain becomes seamless and it's safe to do so."
