PRODUCTION OF 1.48 LAKH FACE MASKS AND MORE THAN 12 THOUSAND LITRES OF SANITIZER BY SER TO COMBAT THE SPREAD COVID-19 PANDEMIC

 

Kolkata, 22nd August, 2020:

 

With a view to prevent  growing cases of Covid-19 Pandemic and to ensure the safety of employees, South Eastern Railway has taken all out efforts to produce reusable face masks and hand sanitizer at its four divisions viz. Kharagpur, Adra, Ranchi and Chakradharpur as well as at Kharagpur Workshop. The masks and sanitizer are being prepared under the strict supervision and guidance of Medical Department of SER.          

 

            All the divisional units of SER and Kharagapur Workshop have taken major initiatives to gear up their machineries and have produced a total number of 1,48,553 reusable face masks and 12,799 litres of hand sanitizer so far.

 

To provide extensive support to its employees, South Eastern Railway has distributed reusable face masks and hand sanitizer amongst the frontline staff like loco pilots, guards and concerned staff engaged in running of freight, parcel and special trains  for ensuring their protection from the pandemic.

 

            Apart from the above, masks and sanitizer are also being sent to health units and hospitals over SER.  The masks are largely being made using cotton clothes with straps for adjustment and can be reused after proper washing. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Kits are also being prepared at Kharagpur Workshop and Kharagpur Divisional Unit of SER for supporting the Doctors, Nurses, Paramedical Staff and Health Care Personnel.

 

            SER’s in-house production will not o­nly ensure timely supply of the masks, sanitizers and PPEs to the frontline staff and Health Care personnel but will also result in substantial cost savings.
