Our top priority continues to be the highest possible protection of health not only of our own employees, but also that of our contact partners outside the M&C Group and its facilities. We also want to ensure that M&C maintains its operational capability and remains constantly available for its business partners.
We have adapted the protective measures of the early months of 2020 to the latest stage of knowledge, e.g. with extended home office operations or a modified group structure of the workforce in the production area to ensure our delivery performance. Important keywords in our internal conduct area are, for instance, strict distance regulations, the avoidance of touching such as shaking hands, the permanent use of mouth/nose masks on the company premises, good room ventilation at specified narrow intervals, etc.
Accompanying measures continue to include restrictive visiting regulations at all M&C Group locations as well as highly limited travel activities of our sales representatives and service specialists. We have therefore developed and implemented alternatives as long as the hazardous situation persists and/or the corresponding regulations remain in force.
Further elements of the comprehensive protection concept are the immediate obligation to report illnesses in the vicinity of employees, particularly extensive hygiene regulations including the enhanced cleaning of buildings, and other reasonable measures recommended by relevant medical and administrative authorities. This still includes strict and tightly defined rules for minimized internal meetings and working groups.
We hope that this comprehensive safety package will continue to provide a good contribution to achieving effective protection for the M&C team and all our contact partners.
