Windsor, Ontario — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Canada has taken more physical steps toward restarting production in Ontario.
The company’s Windsor, Ont. site has taken physical steps toward restarting production in Ontario by erecting medical tents in its parking lots and posting large COVID-19 signage on its gates.
Employees arriving for their shifts are to be temperature-screened before entering the factory to “ensure the daily wellness of [the] workforce,” said the company.
Each gate to the facility also has turnstiles for employees to funnel through, where they will answer a five-point checklist prior to entering the plants. If they answer ‘yes’ to any of the five questions, they should not report for work.
FCA has also redesigned work stations to maintain proper physical distancing, expanded its “already extensive cleaning protocols” at all locations and made the wearing of masks mandatory.
The company said similar measures are being taken at the Brampton, Ont. facility.
FCA announced Tuesday it plans to restart North American plants on May 18.
