The Group has excelled in its fast and ti- mely management, scaling actions and reactions according to the changing nature of the pande- mic. We worked everyday to maintain the balance between protecting people and continuing our business, respecting all our stakeholders and business partners. We immediately reviewed the regulations set out by the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers dated March 14, 2020, in order to define a strict methodology and structure the actions required to conduct business in absolute safety. To this end, 3 Covid Committees were established (one for each company comprising the Group), made up of Employers, Health and Safety Offi- cers, the Safety in the Workplace Representati- ve, trade unions, safety managers, the internal Safety Office and various Operations roles. The committees have met more than 30 times since the start of the pandemic. In addition to the Covid Committees, the Crisis Management Team was set up in March 2020, an extended team focusing on the management of Covid-19 that met regularly to manage critica- lities and provide a timely response. In collabo- ration with the departments, the team drew up a Pandemic Plan consisting of procedures and protocols to protect workers. The protocol that was implemented considers some key aspects of the pandemic management in relation to company life: • Methods used by the company to inform all workers and whoever enters the company premises about the provisions set out by the authorities • Managing the arrival and departure of staff and external suppliers • Cleaning and deep cleaning of company pre- mises • Personal hygiene precautions and personal protective equipment • Company organization (e.g. shifts, remote working) and managing communal spaces • Managing a symptomatic individual on com- pany premises and health supervision • Updating the protocol Moreover, CBI set out a Group Pandemic Plan, which enabled every company site to create, update and maintain a specific pandemic re- sponse plan for each structure. The plan outlines elements such as risk assessment of work activi- ties for all departments, encouraging preventive measures to reduce the infection risk among em- ployees, contractors and consultants; identifying the essential roles and departments required to maintain continuous product supply; and main- taining essential departments, such as site safety and technical consultancy for devices. To underline the constant focus on the health and safety of our workers during this delicate time, we worked every day with the Health and Safety Officers and a large network of health professionals through the Associazione Italiana Ambiente e Sicurezza (AIAS – Italian Environ- ment and Safety Association). This collaboration resulted in devising responses that were valid for the changing nature of the legislation. The Safety Office and other departments involved were able to take part in several Covid-19 training courses to bring external experiences and best practices to the Group. An information channel was set up through emails and noticeboards for employees to pro- vide updates not about internal company rules, but also about the constantly changing situation Managing the Covid-19 pandemic Risp ttiamo la no ra storia attraverso la tradizi e Cr sciamo attr verso la condivisione
