Eka Global, the leading longevity packaging producer, has increased its safety measures to protect its business and people from COVID-19 pandemic. Employee vaccination program and strict control on onsite visitors are among the measures adopted to increase confidence among its business partners and support the government's efforts to fight against the pandemic.
Mr. Chaiwat Nantiruj, Group CEO of Eka Global Co., Ltd., said to help protect its people, business and partners, the company has brought its safety measure to the highest level after the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) extended lockdown measure for another 14 days (from August 3) or maximum one month in the red zone, including Chachoengsao where Eka Global's head office is located. The measures implemented included two major areas.
The first measure is an internal one. Under this measure, the company has completed vaccination (Sinopharm) for all employees, and increased frequency for manufacturing plant sanitization spray.
Outsiders, partners and suppliers who have to visit Eka Global's office on daily basis have to be fully vaccinated and present their vaccine certification before entering the office. In case the person is not vaccinated, a rapid antigen test will be provided by the company.
The second measure is implemented on outsiders who do not visit Eka Global's office from time to time, such as twice a month. This group will also have to be fully vaccinated and present their vaccine certification before entering the office. In case the person is not vaccinated, a rapid antigen test will be provided by the company at the company's cost.
"As a food container producer, hygiene and safety are the top priority at Eka Global. We have already adopted the highest hygiene and safety measures but we have to take it to a higher level as COVID-19 spreads widely. We believe this is for the best benefits for our people, visitors and also the general public. If our measure helps lower the number of daily new cases of infection, we do not hesitate to do it. We want to help reduce the burden o the government and medical teams at the forefront. We want our partners can also be assured of safety working with Eka Global. We hope visitors understand and cooperate well with us," said Chaiwat.
