In light of the COVID-19 virus recently being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the declaration by the South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, of a national state of emergency from 15th March 2020 – Sintrex has deemed it necessary to convey its policy towards
‘social distancing’ to its current clients, potential clients, partners, providers and suppliers. The following measures have been put in place:
As far as possible, Sintrex employees will try to avoid face-to-face meetings and situations.
Digital meetings will be encouraged and held using video conferencing software like Skype, Zoom or Teams.
In the unlikely case that a face-to-face meeting must happen, Sintrex employees will have to ensure that:
a) no one in the meeting has been in contact with a person who has tested positive for the
b) no one in the meeting has travelled to a high-risk area in the past 21 days;
c) there are no more than 10 people in the meeting.
Visitors to our premises will be screened for a) and b) above.
All employee travel to high-risk areas has been cancelled and local travel has been minimised.
On-site resources will adhere to the policies of each specific client, provided these are not in contradiction with the laws laid down by the South African government.
For the time being, our staff will keep operating from our premises in Bellville and Midrand. In the event that our employees have to work from home, we will ensure that our high levels of professionalism and work ethic continue.
We count on your support in this matter and trust that you will find this in order.
These are trying times globally – but I believe that, by standing together, we can overcome this crisis.
