Handler takes COVID-19 fight to the canteen

[ April 16, 2020   //   ]

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) – the territory’s largest independent cargo handler – has installed thermal cameras in its staff canteen and throughout SuperTerminal 1 to step up the fight against COVID-19. The cameras will help to identify any individual with an abnormally high body temperature, a key indicator of potential infection with Coronavirus.

Hactl is also now implementing additional temperature checks for all staff.

Hactl has meanwhile banned business travel, restricting business meetings to teleconferencing and introduced home-working for some office staff.
