An American company is developing a safety guide to exit downtime.

CEO Jim Farley told reporters that he would be quite comfortable having his family at the Ford factory because the precautions are so comprehensive.

After planning and then delaying the resumption of car production in early April, Ford is currently revealing a detailed “safety textbook” to ensure a gradual return to work at its facilities around the world in the coming weeks and months.

The automaker, like its Detroit counterparts, ceased car production in mid-March, when the coronavirus pandemic spread to Michigan and other US states. Along with other companies around the world, he announced and then changed plans to open facilities as the pandemic continues.

Earlier it became known that Ford intends to force workers to “begin to implement security protocols” at some facilities. These workers will not need to go to work if they feel safe. Which plants will be open for production and when, not yet announced.

Ford provided a list of five conditions for opening any facility. These include: partnership with authorities, modeling of a situation in a specific place, supported by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as among other experts, a set of basic safety rules, including temperature measurement, provision of personal protective equipment (PPE) and changing the layout of the facility to ensure social distance, training employees so that they can move smoothly to the new situation at work, and an offset, “cell-oriented Mines ”schedule for the gradual return of the facility to operation.
