Terex is to resume production at a reduced capacity at all its Northern Ireland sites from Monday 18 May

The reopening will be carried out safely, in compliance with local mandates and response to customer demand and need, says the company.

This decision follows the Department for the Economy's recent publication of a list of priority business sectors that need to continue to operate during the COVID-19 in the UK.

A Terex spokesperson said that employees' health and well-being is at the centre of its operations. To keep the company's returning employees and workplace safe from the virus, Terex has implemented comprehensive safety measures in line with government guidance and company best practice.

Going forward, in addition to its other COVID-19 safety and preventive measures, Terex is introducing three compulsory enhanced measures to help protect the health and safety of team members and others who may need to come to the firm's sites:

Health Checks Upon Entrance: COVID-19 health check self-assessment utilising the Health and Social Care Application and no-touch temperature screening/checks to screen for high temperatures and avoid having sick persons on our site

Face coverings will be mandatory for close working and/or face to face conversations

Social distancing measures across the sites 

These measures also extend to visitors to sites, and visitors will be on an essential basis only.

Terex said that by taking a series of actions, the company could reduce risk and improve confidence that it can operate in a safe work environment.

The company anticipates that these measures will be in place for the foreseeable future. Terex's leadership team will continue to monitor the situation daily, a spokesperson added.
