Industry Response to COVID-19
The safety and health of our industry’s employees, customers and users has always been paramount to our member companies. Paint and coatings production is highly automated, and most people do not work in close proximity to complete necessary tasks. In the face of COVID-19, paint and coatings manufacturers have incorporated social distancing and increased hygiene measures at their manufacturing plants, and instituted specific practices to successfully accomplish heightened worker safety.
