Analysts say that there is no such thing as “going back to normal”, and what we have now is what you call the “New Normal.” Hence, you might always encounter the term as the spread of COVID-19 continues to change how we live and work.
The New Normal at Solaric
Solaric strictly follows the guidelines issued by the Philippine government, including the Department of Health and the Department of Labor and Employment, for its employees, keeping in mind the quarantine restrictions implemented in various areas of the country. Solaric has laid down new rules and protocols to protect its employees and clients as we continue our service of bringing and promoting renewable energy to people. The new normal at Solaric will all be about safety, health, hygiene, cleanliness, sanitation, rigorous screening, masks, and social distancing.
Disinfection Of Workplaces, Staff Houses, Vehicles, And Social Distancing
Solaric has strengthened its efforts and guidelines in disinfection and cleanliness of all its workplaces, staff houses, and service vehicles to ensure that they are properly disinfected, ventilated, and maintained. Disinfecting mats and sanitizers are provided in every entryway and common area for its employees, clients, and visitors. Everyone is required to observe proper hand washing and social distancing as much as possible at all times.
Rapid Antibody Test
Although testing for coronavirus is not mandatory, Solaric opted to subject all its employees and workers to rapid antibody testing which will be shouldered by the company. For any employee or worker that tests positive to the antibody test, he/she will be required to undergo a Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) swab test for further assessment. If positive, the employee/worker is a COVID-19 case and will be isolated and referred accordingly for appropriate management. If found negative, the employee/worker can continue working with usual precautions. This measurement is done to ensure the safety of our clients and co-workers but a joint effort to fight COVID-19 by identifying positive cases and help reduce transmissions.
To monitor its employees and workers, everyone is subjected to daily monitoring whether they are reporting at their workplaces or working from home by Solaric through temperature and symptom checks which are conducted twice a day, before and after their respective shifts.
The New PPE
One of the top and continuing priority for us in Solaric is to secure our employees and the people whom we serve. Besides the traditional PPE or personal protective equipment for our installers, we also equipped them with safety working glasses and face masks. Facemasks are also required to be worn by all employees and to bring the disinfectants provided onsite and everywhere to ensure a safe working environment for them and the clients they are dealing with.
The Launch of the AirSCRUB
Along with the new protocols, Solaric also released its newest product in line with the “new normal” which is the AirSCRUB. The AirSCRUB is equipped with an activated carbon and catalyst filter, antimicrobial HEPA filter, internal UV light, and an ionizer to filter and clean the usual viral or bacterial pathogens found in the air that we breathe. Solaric shall implement the use of AirSCRUB in all its workplaces and staff housing once the units are commercially available in June 2020.
