The temporarily closed multinational auto component maker at the Chakan industrial estate resumed its operations recently with limited manpower, said a senior executive of the company.
The company had suspended its operations on Saturday night after 120 of its employees tested positive for Covid-19.
“We are operating in two shifts with about 25% of manpower. We shall have to work in this manner till the situation normalizes, which will take at least two to three weeks,” the senior executive of the company said.
The firm has purchased pulse oximeter to check the oxygen-level of its employees at the firm’s entrance.
“We are monitoring the containment zones so that no employee from these zones reports to work. We are also taking self-declaration from them,” he said, adding that all the employees testing Covid-19 positive were fine.
A senior official from the health department of Khed tehsil said they inspected the affected sections of the company on Monday. “The company has sanitized all sections as per the government’s protocol and can run operations with available manpower,” said BB Gadve, the health officer of Khed tehsil.
