The corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic is causing worldwide concern and economic difficulty for consumers, businesses and communities across the globe. It has differentially impacted companies based on their industry, geographic focus, end markets served and product use cases. Paper & Packaging Industry is no different. Manufacturers are facing unique challenges caused by the crisis and rising demands for products like toilet paper and other hygienic products.

Governments around the world consider forest products as an “essential industry” that should remain operational during this pandemic. These products are critical components of the supply chains required to produce and deliver food, pharmaceuticals, hygiene products and emergency supplies for consumers globally.

Paper & Packaging Industry - COVID 19 Impact

Companies are remaining committed to protecting the health and safety of their employees and contractors while making invaluable contributions that help people and communities respond to the corona virus pandemic. While the focus is on social distancing and hygiene precautions to protect workers health, hearing protection should also be a vital part of any worker safety protocol.
