Despite the large flow of information about the coronavirus COVID-19, many questions arise related to everyday behavior and actions in the workplace, allowing you to protect yourself from the virus. We asked the specialists of Metalloinvest about this, and also learned the opinion of the employees of the enterprises on the measures taken.
From the lack of information, there are many rumors and assumptions based on fear, and not on objective data. So, many questions arise about the safety of the use of alkoframes and ASMO complexes. Here's what doctors say about this:
– How does the virus spread? It enters the air from a sick person through saliva and sputum when sneezing or coughing. The second way is contact: the virus, falling into the environment, settles on surfaces – on the skin, tables, door handles, handrails of public transport. Our automated medical examination complexes and alkoframes are non-contact and have officially confirmed certificates. They are allowed for measurements and are not a source of the spread of any infections, ”said Elina Mishustina, Director of LebGOK-Zdorovie LLC.
The experience of operating alkoframes in large industrial enterprises showed the absence of the spread of not only viral infection, but also much more serious diseases, such as tuberculosis. At the same time, all enterprises of Metalloinvest carry out regular processing of alkoframes with disinfectants in accordance with the operating rules.
– An effective anti-virus disinfectant is used – perhydrol. Its active ingredient – hydrogen peroxide – is effective against viruses and bacteria, ”said Olga Smekhnova, chief specialist of the Lebedinsky GOK health group. – Alcoramas cannot be a source of infection. They stand in rooms that are well ventilated. All devices are treated many times a day with disinfectants recommended not only by the manufacturer, but also by the Rosepidnadzor in order to prevent coronavirus infection, ”said Elena Lvova, chief specialist of the OEMK health group.
There is an operational headquarters in Metalloinvest, headed by Andrey Varichev, General Director of the company. All the information about the epidemiological situation at the enterprises comes here. Similar operational headquarters have been created at all the plants of the company.
Due to the threat of the spread of COVID-19, Metalloinvest has put in place an order to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. The order includes a set of measures aimed at protecting the health of company employees. The list of measures includes the cancellation of all foreign business trips of employees, as well as events with more than 50 participants. Employees who visited epidemiologically unfavorable countries will be self-insulated for 14 days with a disability certificate.
For preventive purposes, devices with an antiseptic agent for hand hygiene are installed in the administrative buildings of the company, personal protective equipment for respiratory organs and thermal imagers are purchased. Daily sanitization of vehicles and premises.

A lot of attention is paid to explanatory work: information materials are distributed, and preventive measures are discussed in the departments.
We will also continue to inform readers of the situation.
There are opinions
gasman TsGBBZH-3, Lebedinsky GOK:
– To protect myself from the virus, I would recommend to my colleagues to wash their hands more thoroughly and, if possible, to communicate less with friends who come from abroad. I believe that breathalyzers are safe and do not contribute to the spread of the virus.
“I'm not afraid of Coronavirus.” I try to wash my hands more often, I teach children to do this. I wipe the workplace, telephone with antibacterial wipes. I ventilate the room, I try to visit more often in the fresh air, less often to visit crowded places. I think this is enough, as in the case of any virus.
