Distribution to employees
- Two surgical masks per working day are distributed free of charge to employees who request them, according to the needs established by the hierarchies and through the designated respondents.
- Disinfection products (disinfectant wipes, liquids and sprays) are available to staff members. Each hierarchy communicates the need for disinfectants for its entity to the designated respondents. The respondents are responsible for distribution. A deposit system is set up for the replenishment of disinfectant products. Keep your spray bottles and wipe containers. Due to their cost, limited stock and ecological impact, the wipes are reserved for the disinfection of sensitive scientific and audio-visual equipment. Alco Clean is available to disinfect surfaces.
The costs for the purchase of additional masks are borne by the employees.
