Fabrinet has instituted broad ranging measures to protect the health and welfare of our employees during the covid-19 pandemic, including a policy of encouraging all employees worldwide to become vaccinated. Due in particular to the relatively low vaccination rate among the Thai population generally, these measures have included providing vaccine – free of charge – to all of our Thailand based employees. Thanks in large part to this ongoing program, Fabrinet now has a worldwide employee vaccination rate in excess of 95%.
In addition, Fabrinet has undertaken the following initiatives at some or all of its facilities:
Work from Home program instituted to increase social distancing, as well as to shield the vulnerable, who are still being paid;
Sanitization of busses transporting employees, as well as all incoming packages.
Requirement that facemasks be worn at all times, except while eating in socially distanced cafeterias;
Limits on ingress to buildings, and temperature and symptom checks at all entrances;
Limits on visitors to facilities;
Automation of doors and restroom faucets, to decrease touchpoints;
Antigen testing of symptomatic personnel;
Contract tracing within factory, and antigen testing and quarantining of those identified as close contacts to infected individuals.
Fabrinet funded medical hotline with physician;
Emergency vehicle transport for employees with Covid; and
Other employee support, emotional and otherwise, where necessary.
To ensure sufficient social distancing in its canteens, where masks cannot be worn at all times, Fabrinet has limited the number of seats, marked off spacing for queuing, added additional space between tables and chairs, and set up additional temporary space for canteen and rest areas.
In all canteens, we have also:
Installed motion sensors for water dispensing machines.
Required that food vendors always wearing face masks, gloves and goggles.
Banned raw foods and fruits imported from high risk countries.
Required washing of all vegetables with Covid-19 sanitizer, and installed a QR code for cashless payments.
