We recently sat in on a webinar hosted by Canadian Manufacturing, Plant, and Electronic Products and Technology magazines. The webinar addressed the challenges facing manufacturing businesses and teams during the COVID-19 crisis, and featured keynote speakers Dennis Darby (President & CEO, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters) and Stephen Loftus (President/Co-Owner, Innovative Automation Inc.).
It can seem like a daunting task to keep teams safe in a manufacturing environment, but Darby and Loftus offered great suggestions including:
- Limiting who is on site – people who can work remote, do so,
- Aid social distancing by staggering shifts and lunch breaks,
- Increased signage,
- Regular communication, and
- Implementing special procedures for shipping and receiving.
You can access the webinar in its entirety here. Be sure to continue listening through the Q&A – there’s a lot of good information there, too.
And remember – keep washing those hands.
