Embraer to Resume Critical Operations
Embraer is resuming critical operations in an effort to maintain its production lines and is also diverting efforts to assist the Brazilian government in the production of parts for respirators to combat COVID-19.
During the temporary plant shutdown period, customer support, aircraft maintenance, and manufacturing were defined as essential roles by Embraer’s management team. In many cases, Embraer products are responsible for transporting health supplies and professionals who provide care to patients with COVID-19 in Brazil and around the world.
The company intensified cleaning procedures, and adapted the workstations and common areas to ensure social distancing. At the same time, the Brazilian manufacturer has reinforced its communications tools with precautions and preventative actions. The measures adopted are in accordance with the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines and seek to ensure that employees perform their roles with guidance from the company’s health and safety teams, according to Embraer.
The company stated that critical functions’ employees will work from home if possible. Non-critical functions staff will be on collective vacation from April 1 to April 9, 2020. These employees are scheduled to return to work on April 13, 2020.
The company has assured that the measures taken will focus on its staff’s well-being and Embraer’s much-needed business continuity.
