Through the Workforce Protection Program, PT Angkasa Pura II Protects Airport Personnel in the Middle of a Pandemic

26 Oct 2020

Jakarta - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) increases vigilance ahead of the long holiday October 28 - November 1 2020 so that health protocols are consistently strictly enforced for airport personnel and travelers.

As an effort to prevent COVID-19 and create healthy flights, PT Angkasa Pura II airport carries out health protocols through the concept of biosecurity management (physical distancing, health screening, passenger touchless processing, people protection, facility cleanliness), plus biosafety management (biohazard precautions) , environment screening, infrastructure sterilization, public health assurance).

The biosafety and biosecurity management have programs, one of which is Workforce Protection, which has been implemented since March 2020 to protect employees including operational and service personnel at the airport.

The Workforce Protection program is implemented through:
- Adjustment of operational patterns: Normal Operation, Slow Down Operation, Minimum Operation 1 and 2
- Obligation to use PPE: PPE Level 1, PPE Level 2, to PPE Level 3 which uses complete hazmat
- Tracing, tracking and testing: PT Angkasa Pura II has an internal iPerform application to carry out tracing and tracking management for all employees. Employees, particularly airport operational and service personnel, also conduct regular rapid tests
- Service adjustment: Face-to-face customer service is eliminated, replaced by VICA (virtual customer assistant)
- Examination of body temperature before personnel on duty

President Director of PT Angkasa Pura II Muhammad Awaluddin said Workforce Protection is an internal regulation to protect employees in the midst of this pandemic.

“Workforce Protection sees from various sides. For example, by adjusting operational patterns or reducing operating hours, airport personnel have more time to be at home but airport operations can still run smoothly. Personnel are also equipped with PPE starting from level 1 to level 3 which are adjusted to the situation and function of the personnel. "

"Through Workforce Protection, PT Angkasa Pura II can continue to operate the airport and maintain flight connectivity to support the national aviation industry in order to continue to contribute optimally in the midst of a pandemic," explained Muhammad Awaluddin.
