Social Distancing Mandate Gives Rise to New Job Roles in Factories

By M Saraswathy

Factories across India have partially resumed operations even as the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to be a serious cause of concern. With manufacturing units given the responsibility to maintain social distancing and employee safety, a new set of roles called shop-floor coordinators and sanitisation servicemen has opened up in India.

These new job roles would involve hiring entry-level talent with a basic understanding of the importance of sanitation, hygiene and social distancing. The pay? Between Rs 12,000 and Rs 14,000 per month.
