Constructing emergency hospitals and donating medical supplies

In response to the novel coronavirus outbreak, Zoomlion quickly set up a 
special support team of dozens of engineers and operators, and more than 240 
sets of machinery and equipment, including earthmoving equipment, mobile 
cranes, concrete machinery, and aerial work platforms. From January 23, 
Zoomlion participated in the construction of hospitals across China, including 
Wuhan, Hunan, Shenzhen, Henan, Guangxi and Tianjin, and has donated medical 
supplies to boost frontline efforts. 

As of February 18, Zoomlion has purchased more than 3 million sets of medical 
protective equipment. More than 2.6 million medical supplies have been donated.

Ensure health and safety for returning workers

Recovery from the coronavirus outbreak will be boosted by employees gradually 
returning to the workplace from February 5. So far, more than 70% of employees 
have returned and overall production capacity has been restored to 60%-80%.

Before employee's return to work, Zoomlion set up an infection prevention and 
control team and a return-to-work plan to ensure the health and safety of 
returnees. To combat the infection, specialised teams disinfect the office 
site, production workshops and facilities, as well as roads, dormitories and 
canteens in the industrial park twice a day. At the same time, employee's 
temperature must be routinely checked to avoid a breakout. Protective materials 
such as masks will be distributed to every employee and are to be worn at all 
times. For those who cannot return to the workplace on time, proper 
resettlement measures have been arranged to help them work from home. 

Strict prevention and control measures provides a strong guarantee for orderly 
operation and production.
