Seagate has stayed in full production throughout the 2020 pandemic because we have taken extra precautions with all of our staff.
All of our production workers wear full protective gear, including hooded disposable suits., gloves, masks, hoods etc. Everyone is tested for temperature at the entrance to the plant. No one is allowed to ride to use on public transportation. We conduct regular interviews with each employee to check their behaviors outside of the plant — wearing masks, social distancing, and avoiding being in groups of people. Everyone has been given the option of whether or not to come to work at full pay without any penalty. However, if they choose to work they must live responsibly outside of work knowing that their behavior when not at work can impact the health of their co-workers.
This plant is located in Ensenada, Baja California. In Mexico where there is a shortage of hospital infrastructure, prevention is the most important weapon in the fight against Covid because there are very limited medical facilities for those who get sick. All of our workers may select any of Seagate’s natural remedies at no cost for themselves and their families. The most popular ones this year have been:
Fortunately as of this date, no one at the factory has contracted the virus.
Most of the processes in the plant are done with automated machinery. The machine in the photo above is our grape press which we use to concentrate the skin and the seeds before concentrated into an extract.
