The impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic was felt all over the world. It has also been seen to have impacted all sectors of life, economical, educational, social, religious, etc. Currently, some company industries have even suspended their operations to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. However, in these difficult times Dynapack Asia, as part of the rigid plastic packaging industry, continues to operate. We continue to run our operations to supply our products to customers, hence they are able to provide the basic necessities and medical needs to the communities, as well as goods used to prevent the spread of COVID-19 such as medical supplies, personal care products, food, beverages, lubricant, and household items.
In carrying out the operational activities amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, Dynapack Asia continues to focus on the safety of all employees by implementing several preventative efforts to minimize the risks of COVID-19 spreading in our facilities. Below is Dynapack Asia’s preventive efforts based on our BSP (Business Continuity Planning):
1. Doing Temperature Check.
It applies for all employees and external parties who will enter Dynapack Asia’s facilities.
Temperature check is one of initial detection to prevent COVID-19 spreading.
2. Providing Masks and Gloves.
Masks are one of the main personal protective equipment in preventing COVID-19 from spreading. All employees are required to wear mask while working in our facilities. We also provide gloves for our employees as additional protective equipment.
3. Providing Hand Sanitizer and Hand Wash Area.
Personal Hygiene is the fundamental way to prevent COVID-19. Employees are trained and required to maintain personal hygiene by frequently washing their hands with soap or hand sanitizer before entering the surrounding facilities.
4. Providing Supplement / Vitamin.
Physical endurance is another main factor to prevent COVID-19 transmission. For this reason, the company will provide supplements / vitamins for employees who need it to support their immunity while working.
5. Applying Physical Distancing.
Dynapack Asia will apply physical distancing of about 1.5-2 meters, following recommendations from the World Health Organization, as well as limiting the amount of people in the room. We’re also applying a group shift transition system and a working from home (WFH).
6. Establishing COVID-19 Handling Team.
A COVID-19 Handling team at our facilities will be equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE) and will be on standby in handling COVID-19 suspected/positive individuals in our facilities based on government instructions.
7. Regular Intensive Cleaning.
We do intensive and regular cleaning for working equipment and public areas in our facilities that have been used / touched often by employees.
Besides what’s mentioned above, we also create promotional media in preventing COVID-19, shared in health campaigns through posters, social media, paging, providing training to employees, as well as providing updated information / news from the local government & WHO (the World Health Organization) about the direction in handling the spread of COVID-19. We hope that through these efforts, all employees will be able to stay healthy and avoid COVID-19 transmission.
