We are all aware of the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. And Petrobras has been taking all preventive measures to contribute to the fight against the new coronavirus in our country. The company understands the importance of taking such measures to protect lives. The moment is one of care, awareness, and overcoming. Get to know the main measures already adopted:
_ We have intensified teleworking for all activities that can be carried out remotely. All people in the risk group, in any activity, are also teleworking. We have advised our service providers to take the same steps.
_ At boarding to offshore units, everyone’s temperature is being checked and health guidelines reinforced. If any employee on board comes up with symptoms, he or she will be immediately disembarked and everyone who had close contact with such person monitored.
_ People returning from trips abroad, whether on business or on vacation, will be quarantined, undertaking home-office activities.
_ We have suspended all trips abroad. In Brazil, we have maintained only those who are strictly necessary, with all prior care and health guidelines.
_ We have suspended face-to-face events and meetings with more than 20 people and intensified online meetings.
_ We have intensified cleaning routines, the provision of health care and guidelines for employees so that all preventive measures are taken.
These preventive initiatives are in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health and aim to contribute to the efforts of the entire population and of the authorities to mitigate risks, reduce circulation in public spaces, and keep people in their homes. We are evaluating the need for new measures on a daily basis, with the support of a special permanent committee that was created to monitor the evolution of the global health situation caused by the new coronavirus.
