In the face of the complicated situation of the Covid-19 epidemic with a new variant strain, with a high level of infection, at risk of rapid spread in the community and at businesses, in the spirit of implementing the direction at the central and provincial levels, Dung Quat Economic Zone and Quang Ngai Industrial Parks Authority (DEZA) has deployed many documents to urge and require businesses in Dung Quat EZ and Quang Ngai IPs to strictly manage, maintain and implement the prevention, control and assessment of the risk of Covid-19 infection at workplaces and dormitories for employees, especially developing an epidemic prevention plan at each enterprise.

At the same time, DEZA checked and worked with leaders of businesses in the area to urge, request employers at enterprises to strictly implement the “5K” requirement in epidemic prevention and control. To require employees to install the Bluezone application and regularly turn on Bluetooth for the application to work effectively.
In general, business leaders have developed anti-epidemic plans, always determined to be proactive and drastic in the prevention and control of the Covid-19 epidemic. Many forms have been applied such as: measuring body temperature, making partitions in rooms to organize mid-shift meals for workers, making medical declarations, equipping with hand sanitizer, keeping a distance among workers at the attendance checking area , Parking places and distributing masks at the company gate are strictly implemented, in accordance with epidemic prevention regulations as recommended by the Health Ministry.
In particular, businesses with a large number of employees have cleaned and disinfected their factories, shuttle bus, and focused on disease prevention so that employees can feel secure when working at the enterprise. In addition, enterprises encourage workers to honestly make detailed and clear medical declarations of destinations during the holiday period in order to prevent the epidemic in time for themselves, businesses and the community.
Enterprises that use daily shuttles for workers such as Doosan Vietnam Heavy Industry Co., Ltd., Hoa Phat Dung Quat Steel Joint Stock Company, Dung Quat Garment Factory, etc., are disinfected twice before starting and ending the journey; The seating position on the car is kept at a safe distance according to regulations, the number of people carrying is reduced to only 30% – 40%. Specialized departments have calculated the extension of work shifts, lunches, ensuring a safe distance; increase bus transportation for workers, etc. Some companies such as Doosan Vina, Hoa Phat Steel also have a policy to support employees with 70% of salary in case employees self-isolate at home.
In addition to thoroughly applying the epidemic prevention at the highest level, enterprises also adjusted their construction and production plans; shifts are divided more reasonably to ensure distance during work hours. Some construction and production items related to cooperation with foreign experts were also recalculated to meet the requirements of epidemic prevention work.
At VSIP Quang Ngai, factories and enterprises have also activated 100% of epidemic prevention scenarios, employees have voluntarily implemented full epidemic prevention measures when entering the factory and also outside working hours. Enterprises with a large number of employees such as King Maker III Vietnam Co., Ltd., Millennium furniture Co., Ltd., Mensa Industries Co., Ltd., Happy Furniture Vietnam Co., Ltd. all strictly control workers entering and leaving the factory. During the working process, employees must wear masks and disinfect their hands. Information about the epidemic situation is also continuously updated by the units and uploaded to the system for workers to monitor. For workers from the epidemic area, if they have returned home during the epidemic, they must comply with the medical declaration and quarantine for the prescribed time before returning to the factory.
According to Mr. Dam Minh Le – Vice Chairman of DEZA: “DEZA always highly appreciates and praises businesses that have well implemented the instructions of the Provincial Party Committee, the Provincial People’s Committee and DEZA in the prevention of the Covid-19 epidemic in the past time. Currently, in Dung Quat EZ and Quang Ngai IPs, there are many enterprises with a large number of employees, so the risk of infection is high due to the crowded environment of workers and frequent close contact. Therefore, businesses must develop plans for epidemic prevention and control at their units in all situations in order to effectively implement the “dual goals” of preventing and controlling the epidemic, protecting people’s health, and preventing and controlling the spread of the virus, recovering and developing the economy and society in a new normal state.”
