Tenants in industrial parks in Vinh Phuc province have put a strong focus on preventing and controlling Covid-19 pandemic to continue their stable manufacturing activity.

The Vinh Phuc Industrial Parks Authority asked enterprises to report persons with any connection to pandemic zones from July 1 to now, and reactivate the universal pandemic prevention system. Accordingly, they must take serious and regular measures to keep the contagion at bay like spraying antiseptics, establishing body temperature checkpoints, providing and requesting all employees and customers to wear facemasks at work and disinfect hands before entering factories and leaving the workplace; review, classify and isolate people at risk of infection and people returning from pandemic areas as guided by health authorities. At the same time, they continue to accelerate communications to inform their employees of the pandemic nature and development to have best preventive measures for themselves, their families and community.

Sharing about actionable measures to prevent and control the Covid-19 pandemic in the new context at Thang Long Industrial Park, Mr. Nguyen Minh Duc, Director of Thang Long Vinh Phuc Industrial Park Co., Ltd, said, “From valuable experience learned from the first outbreak, the company has figured out preventive measures like preparing preventive plans and programs, preparing antimicrobial masks, and measuring body temperature to prevent the contagion of the Covid-19 pandemic in the new context. In particular, the company has actively upgraded its information technology system, and provided LAN-connected laptops for work from home for employees who do not have to be present at the workplace. For employees who have to be present, the company has planned to restrict mobility and provide beds, rooms and necessities for workers to limit unnecessary movement and contact.”

Based in Khai Quang Industrial Park, Vina Korea Co., Ltd has two employees travelling to Da Nang City in early July. Following instructions of the Government, Vinh Phuc province and health authorities, these employees are required to stay at home for isolation. To prevent the pandemic in the new normal, the company has informed employees of preventive measures and applied specific measures to eating, drinking and travelling for separate production lines.

Like many other businesses, Young Poong Electronics Vina Co., Ltd (Binh Xuyen II Industrial Park) is seriously preventing the Covid-19 pandemic. As the pandemic outbreak is emerging in some localities, the company has thoroughly informed all workers of pandemic prevention measures in the new situation; requested three employees who visited Da Nang City with their families from July 1 to July 28 to make medical declaration, home isolation and daily health reports via Zalo to the HR Department. In particular, Young Poong Electronics has also built a detailed scenario to readily respond, localize and isolate divisions, employees, and production lines with infections.

The timely direction of the Vinh Phuc Provincial People’s Committee and the serious participation of enterprises in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in the new normal are motivating the company’s employees to believe in a better prospect and work harder.
