It was important that we collectively ensure that the Boisbriand site remain a first-class example in the application of those measures. Therefore, anyone with symptoms of cough, fever, respiratory problem, was returned home to quarantine. To ensure the wellness of everyone, all office workers who do not work in production were mandated to work remotely from home. Also, all interior doors of the building had to stay permanently open to avoid any unnecessary contact. Only one entrance remains open, where employees needs to fill out a questionnaire and have their temperature taken every morning. Workers also need to wash their hands when entering the building as well as before and after breaks and lunch.
In order to respect the distance between workers, arrows and one-way direction was determined and are clearly visible on the floor. Distance between workstations and/or workers was set to the minimum of 2 meters and stations are now separated by plexiglass separators. Physical distance was also defined in the cafeteria and meeting rooms have been transformed and are now being used to provide more spaces to accommodate our employees during breaks and lunch time. An external company ensures the disinfection of cafeterias between all breaks and dinner, as well as twice a day for all common areas. The disinfection process of all tools and workstations after each break and in the morning is done by the employees in the assembly department.
Protector separation in assembly lines
As for the shipping and receiving department, a secluded shelter for drivers was built so they could follow the same process as all LUMEC plant employees like completing the questionnaire and taking their temperature. Also, some of our parts are received by our transporters to be consolidated before being transferred to the factory.
Shelter for delivery drivers
We are happy that with all the precautions and new measures in place, no COVID cases have been reported among the 200 factory employees. In addition, we were able to recover the delay in production time thanks to everyone’s help and their ever-present team spirit. #GreatherTogether!
Despite some departments working remotely, communication was key and has continued with all company employees who stay connected via virtual meetings and friendly chat coffee-corners.
We’re all looking forward to returning to a normal life, but meanwhile, all those changes that were put in place in the factory (and other departments) are now part of our daily reality. It’s important that we collectively ensure the health and security of our colleagues and I sincerely think that everyone at the Lumec Boisbriand factory has that at heart.
Stay safe everyone. Cheers!
