Mozambique: Vale Implements Remote Work for Administrative Activities as a Preventive Measure

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Vale informs that workers whose functions are eligible for home office in Mozambique are working remotely since Thursday (March 19). It is recommended that only the minimum number of professionals should work in administrative areas to maintain essential services.

The company points out that this is a protective measure to ensure the safety of workers and society in general, reducing the number of people in the same environment, in addition to exposure to public environments.

Some of the company's offices worldwide have already implemented home office – such as Brazil, China, Japan, Singapore, and Switzerland. Each region has implemented a specific remote work plan according to the local scenario.

International and domestic non-essential travels are still suspended, and the same guidance applies to events and visits to operations. A specific Preparation and Response Plan for COVID-19 was also developed. The actions due to the pandemic are managed by the regional and executive committees created especially to ensure the safety of all.

Since the end of January, Vale Global has been taking all the measures required to support the prevention against COVID-19 in its workplaces. Globally, the company complies with the health and safety protocols established by the authorities and agencies of each country, as well as the actions defined by the internal pandemic preparation and response plan, and closely monitors the evolution of the situation.

Globally, Vale has almost 110 thousand direct and third-party employees – more than 13 thousand work in Mozambique.
