April 03, 2020 Message from NKI Managing Director in Response to COVID-19
Covid -19 has been declared as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. This has not only emerged as a health crisis across the world but also threatens to impact the overall global economy severely, if not contained at the earliest. As we see in India also, the cases are on a rise with around 2545 cases already been reported and many under surveillance where 191 have recovered and 72 are dead.
While the Indian government is handling the situation very proactively, the threat of this highly contagious disease spreading further continues. It is therefore important that various sections of the society work together to address this challenge, which is to curtail the spreading of this disease further.
Industries have a crucial role in connecting with society. Confederation of Indian Industry is constantly working with the government to extend all possible support to address issues concerning awareness, engaging private healthcare players and reaching out to members on addressing their business concerns during these challenging times.
Nihon Kohden India (NKI) is closely monitoring all the necessary activities on a daily basis and timely updating its whole staff and plant to maintain all the necessary and precautionary measures to avoid any such crises.
At NKI, we have implemented all the necessary rules and guidelines to combat COVID-19 in our work place to ensure the safety and protection of our employees. Further to this, we have implemented not only the “Work from Home” policy for backend support employee’s but also the “Work in Field” Policy for all those who are more active in the field on a daily basis for providing technical support services to Hospitals and society. We are maintaining and providing all the precautionary measures and guidelines to our employees to protect themselves from this highly contagious disease. We have also implemented guidelines that restrict usage of public transport for travelling in case of Installation and breakdown service in hospitals. Also we are providing online support to all our engineers as and when needed.
We are a Medical Equipment company and own a social responsibility towards “Health Care industry”. In view of this we are standing with Indian medical and healthcare sector to provide our best services and support in fighting with deadly covid19.
