Tork® Site Safety Guide shares hygiene and safety recommendations for manufacturers

Hygiene and health company Essity has developed the Tork Site Safety Guide for Manufacturing to share best practices.

Today, global health and hygiene company, Essity, the global manufacturer of Tork, has published the Tork Site Safety Guide for Manufacturing. This guide offers insights from Essity’s first-hand experience confronting the pandemic and its role in advising the U.K. government on safer policy. It serves as a case study for other manufacturers to develop their own go-forward strategy for resuming operations. This comprehensive approach was created through collaboration with trade unions, industry bodies, as well as public health officials, and is designed to mitigate infection spread and keep workers, customers and the public safe.

The best practices featured in the guide outline strategies on how to effectively exercise social distancing within a confined manufacturing environment, navigate high-traffic areas and people flow, and achieve critical hygiene and surface cleaning protocols among employees. It also provides recommendations on properly training employees on key COVID-19 information such as the virus symptoms, the importance of hand hygiene and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

“The safety precautions we have taken in our facilities were introduced to protect and maintain the well-being of our employees,” said Jenny Turner, Marketing Director, Essity, Professional Hygiene. “Implementing these strict protocols in our facilities has enabled our global operations to continue delivering critical hygiene supplies and other products worldwide, including healthcare workers on the front lines, without disruption. We believe other manufacturers – our peers and customers across the sector – can find value from our experience, and we would like to share our learnings to help uphold safe work environments on the road to recovery.”

Manufacturing serves a critical role in stabilising and maintaining global supply chains. As facilities secure the new hygiene standard across the globe, these safeguards are integral to reinforce best practices and implement preventive measures to slow the spread of infection.
