Ideas for COVID-19 infection prevention measures

We did a survey for people in the manufacturing industry and tool trading companies.


This time, unlike the usual tool information, it is an article about the COVID-19 countermeasures.
Although some basic forms have taken in offices, restaurants and stores, however, in particular, the countermeasure information for manufacturing industry has not been generalized.
In a situation which we have to be closed due to the influence of infectious diseases, we think that it is meaningful to collect and disseminate information on infectious disease countermeasures for everyone. We did a survey using the national network of Cominix.
We hope that you can use it as ideas that you can refer to even one or two for future manufacturing and business, unlike the statistical information that the government does survey at SNS etc.

Survey period: 1st Sep 2020 to 23rd Sep 2020

Industry and business scale of who responded to the survey (total number of responses: 35 companies)

The purpose of this survey
Questions No. 1 to 3 are about infectious disease control, and No. 4 to 6 are questions about product and service needs. We expect to get new ideas that could be helpful by excluding the ideas of wearing masks or avoiding three Cs.

Question No.1
Are there any anti-virus measures you are doing or trying to do in addition to wearing masks, washing hands, staggered working hours and staggered breaks, daily health management and avoiding three Cs (closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact)?

Question No.6
What kind of information would be useful for your business other than the contents this time?

When we compiled the survey, we found that the method of countermeasures differs depending on the region, not the scale of business or industry.
It seems that there are many more in-depth efforts in the Kanto and Chubu regions, and that relatively general efforts in western Japan.
(Of course, it doesn't mean which is better or worse)

As there is a request at question No.6, we might be able to accelerate the recovery of our business by actively disseminating the status of our own COVID-19 countermeasures not only restaurants and stores, but also in our industry.

Thank you for your cooperation in the survey.
