The corona pandemic and the hidden virus threats made the employees at the FAYARD A/S shipyard nervous about eating and meeting in their canteen. The solution was our Northern Light® HVLS fan, because the fan moves the air in the canteen silently, slowly, and efficiently, and uses the built-in upward-illuminating UVC light to eliminate airborne viruses and bacteria when the air passes the air blades. The result is that FAYARD’s employees can now feel safe and secure in their canteen, because the fan removes virus threats.
Despite the fact that FAYARD complied with all corona guidelines, many employees still chose to drop the visit to the canteen, and instead eat in their workplace. ”We emphasize that employees’ breaks must be a free space from the workplace, and therefore we had to actively do something so we could get them back to the canteen,” says Bjarne Olesen.
“As an employee at FAYARD, you have the opportunity to have food in the canteen in the morning, around lunch and again in the evening, but when the corona pandemic hit Denmark, the turnover in the canteen dropped significantly as the employees stayed away due to the hidden and airborne risk of infection.”
