ALRO, one of the largest vertically integrated aluminium producers in Europe, measured by production capacity, implemented additional and complementary safety measures to those introduced at the beginning of the COVID-19 health crisis.
The access on the company’s premises is allowed after the personnel’s body temperature is checked through cameras placed at the gates’ area and the divisions’ work schedules were changed to minimise contact between employees.
An extended Work From Home program has been implemented and additional rest breaks were introduced in special designed places according to the authorities’ guidelines and recommendations, where wearing a mask is not mandatory.
ALRO has implemented complex protocols and procedures since the outbreak of the COVID-19 health crisis, in coordination with the central and local authorities and compliance with the recommendations of the World Health Organization for industrial sites.
All employees received protective medical materials and equipment

From an incipient phase of COVID-19 crisis outbreak, ALRO has also implemented contingency plans simulating the case of one or more employees are infected with COVID-19, thus ensuring that the operations are not disrupted and the Company remains fully operational and delivers on time.
