“Our products and services are essential for the operations and production of our customers around the world. We are doing what we can to limit the spread of the virus. At the same time we are working together to keep the wheels turning, to prevent further implications to society, business and people’s lives today or tomorrow" says Leif Boström, group CEO of LKAB Minerals.
Geographical and operational differences
LKAB Minerals have operations and suppliers in many countries around the world. As the situation differs geographically and operationally, so will the approach to mitigating business risks.
“The health and safety of our employees and everyone else in our surrounding societies remain our top priority, we follow the local and national restrictions and guidelines as a minimum and ensure contingency planning for each of our businesses,” says Leif Boström. This, as an example, means:
- Local Covid-19 Response Teams assess the situation daily, to anticipate and mitigate for any changes or risks.
- All employees are following social distancing guidelines which in some geographies mean; working from home where possible, rotating shifts on-site to avoid contact with others and a ban on visitors to sites.
- Restrictions on all travel and meetings
- Continuous communication with customers, in case there is any risk of supply disruptions.
