COVID 19: HAL Implements Measures to Ensure Safety of Employees

Bengaluru, May 8, 2020: Back to its normal operations since April 28, 2020 after little over one month break due to COVID 19 pandemic, HAL has put in place strict measures to ensure the safety of its employees working at its locations across the country. These measures not only comply with the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) but some innovative measures like placing pedal-based hands-free sanitizer dispenser developed by HAL are being thought out.

The Standard Operating Procedures have been enforced and these include, staggered shifts, suspension of biometric attendance and sanitization of all work areas in between and during the shift frequently.  

Masks and gloves have been distributed to employees and wearing of mask at workplace is practiced. The work places and tools are disinfected using safe disinfectants. Hand sanitizers are placed at entry and common areas in offices/workplaces. Thermal screening for body temperature of all personnel is done at the entry points.  HAL has introduced an IT platform for agile video conferencing and online applications (e-filing) to minimise the physical interaction.  General health advisories and posters on good hygiene practices are put up at various locations. Awareness sessions on Covid 19 are conducted at Divisions/Offices.  The situation is being monitored closely and efforts are on to ensure business continuity.
