How are we protecting our employees during COVID-19?

Fannie May’s number one priority is the health and safety of its workers

Social Distancing

· Staggered shifts to limit traffic

· Dedicated in and out flow to site so no overlap of people incoming and outgoing

· Cafeterias/Lunchrooms distanced to 6 ft. separation

· Barriers added where distancing is not possible

· Floor markers set up in areas where congregation can occur such as punch clock, entrance to plant and exit of plant


· All employees are asked to self-isolate and refrain from attending work if they have recently traveled, live with someone who traveled, had close contact with a positive or pending case, have symptoms or live with someone who exhibits symptoms

· Everyone entering the site is screened for fever above 100.4° F

· Signage posted in key areas such as entrances, lunchrooms, health and safety boards regarding signs and symptoms of COVID-19

Cleaning and Sanitation

Normal GMP’s such as mandatory handwashing already provide a high level of protection for workers; however, the following additional measures have been implemented:

· Increased sanitization of all high contact touch points at least 2x per shift

· Increased sanitization of lunchrooms, locker rooms and washrooms 2x per shift

· Hand sanitizer available throughout plant

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

· Gloves are available to all employees however it is not always required; effective handwashing practices are always preferred

· Disposable/surgical type masks are mandatory for everyone in the plant (employees, visitors and contractors)
