The past few weeks have brought uncertainty and confusion to many. FootBridge works with several Manufacturing clients located north of Boston, who have been designated as essential. In addition to the current workforce continuing their efforts, our clients are hiring 20+ assemblers to join their teams. Below we discuss some frequently asked questions about these Manufacturing roles and how they handle work in the current climate.

What additional safety precautions are being taken? 

Each of our clients operates their manufacturing processes in ‘Cleanrooms’, areas which are “designed to maintain extremely low levels of particulates, such as dust, airborne organisms, or vaporized particles”. In addition to their typical safety protocol, our clients are taking additional measures to ensure the safety of their workers. These elevated measures include:

  • Staggering shifts to have fewer employees on a site at a time. 
  • Cleaning & disinfecting after every shift, following the CDC guidelines outlined for facilities.
  • Requiring each employee to wear rubber gloves while working.

Why are these manufacturing organizations designated as essential? 

Our clients manufacture equipment used to make computer chips in all the various releases, including semiconductor manufacturing and the companies that support them. At this critical time, we need computing power more than ever. From people working from home to Telehealth meetings with doctors, and the staff at the hospitals, everyone is relying on computer chips to enable the cloud infrastructure and keep servers online.
