Employee safety measures include a daily health risk assessment, temperature check and thermal imaging cameras to verify temperatures, staggered start times and added time during breaks to minimize large gatherings, 10 minutes dedicated to cleaning and disinfecting workstations at the start of each shift, and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of common and high traffic areas.
