In light of the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bertin has a special thought for those who are mobilized to stop the disease.

EMPLOYEE PROTECTION

Implementing national & international governmental measures aiming at limiting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, & complying with the World Health Organization (WHO) directives, Bertin has established preventive actions for the protection of its employees, customers, distributors & partners, while ensuring the continuity of its activities in France & abroad, in countries where it owns subsidiaries.

When possible, most of Bertin’s employees are therefore fully equipped to work from home.

CONTINUATION OF INSTRUMENTATION ACTIVITIES IN THE FIELDS OF HEALTH PHYSICS, DEFENSE & SECURITY, MEDICAL WASTE MANAGEMENT & LIFE SCIENCES

In keeping with its employees’ safety, Bertin intends to ensure the continuity of its customers’ critical activities (large public & private companies, states & local authorities) but also its own activities participating in the fight against the pandemic.

When possible, & in compliance with health recommendations, its teams continue to intervene on-sites, placing priority on:

  • The essential activities related to the country’s electricity production,
  • The sovereign defense activities,
  • The interventions on domestic & medical waste processing plants,
  • The activities linked to life sciences to support the fight against the virus.

As for the remaining services, it has been decided to limit travels & thus the risk of exposure for our technicians & customers. Longer response times may be necessary.
