The showrooms open in orange and green zones areas will be sanitized regularly. The employees are directed to follow seating arrangements in order to keep social distancing. Likewise, the company will follow all the safety measures strictly to keep the customers as well as dealers safe.
The employees will have to download the Aarogya Setu smartphone application. They will use masks, sanitizers and other essential equipment as well. All the workplaces assigned dedicated representatives to ensure SOP adherence. The HR department will administer COVID 19 awareness sessions, that will be compulsory for all workers.
If positive case detected at the workplace, the company has arranged members to carry workers to the hospital or government quarantine centre, if needed. The electric two-wheeler maker has introduced a sanitization tunnel at the factory for operators, which will be used before continuing manufacturing actions. Okinawa also declared to increase the dealer margin from 8 per cent to 11 per cent for all the dealerships over profit.
Mr Jeetender Sharma- MD, Okinawa, said “In this unfortunate scenario for the entire nation, Okinawa as a responsible brand is taking all the possible measures to safeguard its workforce, dealer partners, and customers. We along with the Government need to work in sync to sail through these challenging times.
