To keep our people safe and minimize risk to human screeners during temperatures checks, Team members in Italy and elsewhere around the world are using autonomous temperature screening stations before entering the facility

IDEX reacted quickly to the Covid-19 pandemic and then, in the spirit of community safety, shared its playbook with other manufacturing companies looking for how to protect their workers. The actions taken at our facilities worldwide include:

  • Implementing travel restrictions before government restrictions were in effect
  • Developing response protocols and quarantine policies and communicating transparently when employees tested positive or were exposed to the virus
  • Performing temperature checks for anyone who comes onsite
  • Requiring face coverings be worn inside
  • Establishing and enforcing social distancing protocols (6ft/2m)
  • Redesigning workspaces to ensure distancing and installing barriers where distancing isn’t possible
  • Launching enhanced routine cleaning in line with CDC and global health protocols
  • Providing hand sanitizer/cleaning solutions for employees to use
  • Instructing employees to stay home if they aren’t feeling well
  • Directing employees who are able to work remotely to do so in order to minimize risk to those whose roles necessitate them being onsite
  • Providing hygiene information, including reminders to keep your hands away your eyes, nose and mouth, and sneezing/coughing into your elbow

As a result of this and of your sustained vigilance, despite continued spread in the communities where we do business, we are proud that we continue to have very few employees infected with the virus and of our quick actions to prevent spread within our facilities.

 

With air conditioning being used less because of pandemic concerns, Vetter team members designed “refreshment showers” to keep employees cool during the Summer. Employees maintain social distance while using the shower and make sure to remain upwind of any spray while others use the equipment.
As businesses find ways to exist during a pandemic without a vaccine, IDEX companies around the world are using plexiglass barriers to maintain social distancing
