Manufacturing facilities have always faced a variety of health hazards, including potentially harmful industrial chemicals, petroleum byproducts, hazardous waste, molds and other fungi, and bacteria. The SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 has heightened the need for creating safe and healthy work environments.
Containing the spread of coronavirus is particularly difficult considering the number of people coming-and-going from manufacturing facilities, including just-in-time suppliers and other delivery personnel, along with employees working different shifts.
Compounding the difficulty of containing the spread of disease is the use of common workstations and personnel often working together in close-quarters. These circumstances create the potential for the spread of disease and the need for diligent, routine cleaning and disinfecting practices.
