Restarting Ford Production with Priority on Safety
Ford has recently outlined their plans for restarting production of vehicles in the U.S. and worldwide, with a focus on the health and safety of its employees, dealers, partners and of course, its loyal customers.
By constantly assessing public health conditions, government actions and recommendations, and working with unions like the UAW, Ford will be implementing a staggered approach to resuming production.
For the past several weeks, Ford has been helping to manufacture medical equipment, and has been doing its best to keep employees safe, with the use of face masks, face shields and social distancing within its facilities.
With over 7 million jobs in the United States dependent on automakers, dealers and their suppliers, it is important to get people back to work. But restarting production must also be done safely and with lots of care taken to protect the workforce.
“The health and safety of our employees has been – and remains – our top priority as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kiersten Robinson, chief human resources officer at Ford. “We are taking extensive measures that apply best practices from around the world to make sure all of our facilities and workplaces will be safe, clean and secure for when we return to work on-site.”
Tommie Vaughn Ford has also implemented new measures to help keep our customers and employees safe, including an at-home sales experience and service pickup and delivery. For more information, contact us at Tommie Vaughn Ford in Houston, TX.
