This is a quick post. We’ve been seen a lot of companies having problems dealing with the Coronavirus Outbreak. And we are here trying to make our part in this difficult time, providing reliable information.
After the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared pandemic status for Covid-19, many companies are already feeling the impact. And of course, the manufacturing industry has been affected by this crisis.
Far beyond the economic impacts mentioned in the news, the most important thing is to take care of people’s health, whether in the factory, the office or home.
That’s why we’ve selected 3 links from trustworthy sources to help you spread important information in your company on how to keep people healthy (or how to act in case someone tests positive for Coronavirus).
We really hope that the guides can be relevant for you, your team, co-workers, and relatives.

The guide provides information on how to ensure the health of people in a working environment, as well as the main measures to be taken if someone becomes ill.
