Before the return to work, MANAGERS AND WORKSHOP SUPERVISORS made sure they called staff members one by one to identify those individuals who were in a position to come back in to work. "Sophie Rol, my workshop supervisor, contacted me the week before and asked if I was OK to come back. She asked me about my family responsibilities associated with COVID-19. I was available and ready to come back to work", emphasises Jérôme Coumailleau, going on to say "Home is fine, but I wanted to get back to work. I called the toll-free number ARQUUS had set up everyday to get the latest info about when work was going to restart".
"I was a bit worried at the start, but once I arrived everything was fine" Jérôme Coumailleau
Jordan Horel didn't hesitate either: "All the safety measures were explained to me on the phone before restarting work, and I felt reassured so I didn't hesitate to come back in."
Careful observance of the COVID-19 health recommendations put in place at production sites quickly reassured employees and alleviated their legitimate concerns.
So as to comply to the greatest possible extent with the new safety regulations, not all staff have returned to the various sites at the same time. "On Tuesday we welcomed a dozen staff members. For the time being, just EBMR have resumed logistics work, with a few forklift truck operators as well for supplying the production line with parts."
