Skoda production plants start up again

April 28, 2020

Production at Skoda’s three Czech plants has recommenced with a wide range of hygiene and safety precautions put in place to protect employees’ health.

In consultation with the KOVO trade union, the production of vehicles and components has been resumed in Mladá Boleslav, Kvasiny and Vrchlabí.

Skoda had shut down production at its Czech sites on March 18 this year to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. But 39 days after the temporary closure of the plants, production has now resumed.

The all-embracing set of hygiene and safety measures include equipping the workforce with either protective face masks or respirators. The company is also providing plenty of disinfectant and there are posters to remind staff about general precautions, such as keeping a safe distance from others, refraining from shaking hands and regularly washing or disinfecting their hands.

In addition, random temperature checks are carried out at the entrances of the company premises.

Skoda is informing its workforce about the protective measures at all sites in the Czech Republic using leaflets and posters as well as through various digital channels. Managers and supervisors are also familiarising their teams with the specific safety precautions for their respective departments.
