PT Freeport Indonesia Strengthens Health Protocol in Work Areas

Then it requires body temperature checks for every employee who arrives at the airport and bus terminal and wants to enter the PTFI work area. Employees who are detected with a body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius are required to not work and have a medical team checked.

Lalua maximizes the Limitation of Physical Interaction, by closing a number of facilities such as schools, places of worship, and restaurants / cafeterias in all work areas. For public facilities that remain open such as employee canteens and supermarkets, lines that regulate the distance between queues have been prepared. The same distance restriction is also applied to trams and bus employees who only operate within the work area.

Closing all access to Tembagapura is the next step. Close access to Tembagapura since March 26, 2020. However, all logistical transportation operations continue to be carried out as usual so that the needs for basic commodities such as food are still met.
