Daramic Safety Culture in a COVID-19 World

June 4th, 2020

Personally and professionally, COVID-19 has affected us all. As a result, the world is changing their habits to keep themselves and others safer.

As the attention of our employees shifts to reopening the economy, Daramic maintains our focus on safety throughout our global footprint. Our goal across all our manufacturing facilities, sales offices, innovation centers, located in 8 different countries is to make sure we are sharing and deploying best practices where possible while staying compliant to all local governmental mandates and requirements to ensure that all business units have safe, successful practices put in place for all employees. Under the guidance of global health organizations, areas of focus and implementation include but are not limited to:

  • Temperature screening
  • Face mask usage requirements
  • Disinfecting protocols
  • Social distancing requirements and education

Here is one examples of how our Gujarat, India facility is embracing safety guidance in a post-COVID-19 world.


We will continue to value the health and safety of our employees, customers, and partners worldwide, especially amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is ZERO HARM to our employees, communities and the environment.
