Komatsu Group’s Responses to Expanding Infections of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
May 26, 2020
We express our sincere condolences to the people who have lost loved ones to COVID-19. We also wish a speedy and full recovery to all those who are currently infected by the virus. We extend our sincere appreciation to those who are making their utmost efforts to prevent infections from spreading.
Komatsu group places top priority on the safety and health of our customers and suppliers, residents of local communities, and employees and their families. Komatsu works to prevent coronavirus infections from spreading, based on the policies of the governments of host countries where Komatsu conducts business. Its construction, mining and utility equipment, forest machines and industrial machinery are needed by customers engaging in essential businesses to support critical social infrastructure. For Komatsu to fulfill its responsibilities to customers, it will continue to supply products, parts and service after implementing thorough countermeasures against infections.
In Japan, the government has decided to lift the state of emergency in 39 prefectures on May 14. As we still have some business bases in the prefectures under the state of emergency, we are ensuring infection-preventive measures based on the requests and guidelines of the respective municipal governments. Employees, who are not directly involved in production at plants, engage in teleworking, as a general rule, Concerning the employees directly involved in production at plants, we are taking infection-preventive measures (fever checks, no use of public transportation, and the avoidance of crowded places, such as locker rooms) before starting work.
With respect to the effects of the expanding infections of Coronavirus and the conditions of Komatsu Group companies in Japan and elsewhere, we will continue to update this information into the future.
