Covid:19 Crisis- Pirelli Resumes Production In Italy

Following a six-week halt in production amid the Coronavirus pandemic health crisis, Pirelli  has resumed tyre production in Italy from May 4. It will recommence the manufacturing at its Settimo Vettura passenger and truck tyre plant in Turin at a reduced level, due to lower demand, said Pirelli.

At the Bollate location, where production includes high-performance Velo bicycle tyres, only essential activities will recommence in May with a very small number of employees present, added Pirelli.

In addition, Bollate will begin the production of face masks exclusively for employees and their families.

Pirelli said it has collaborated with a University in Milan (Università degli Studi) to define a healthcare protocol for its employees. The plan entails rigorous health, safety and environment procedures including constant sanitization of all areas in the factories, obligatory use of facemasks, automatic body temperature readings (also through thermal scanners), reduced number of workers per shift and adequate management of distancing for people entering/exiting.

At the Headquarters in Milan, and in offices generally, the company said it will encourage the continuation of homeworking to ensure that fewer employees are present, in addition to introducing shifts. For employees working from home, the company has already developed a set of rules and recommendations for effective homeworking and the better use of the available digital platforms.

After being confined to their homes for nearly nine weeks, Italy has begun to ease nationwide lockdown from May 4. As the nation resumes constructions and several businesses, as estimated four million people are expected to go back to work, 72 percent of them are men.
