JSW Steel achieved crude steel production of 2.96 million tons in Q1 of FY 2020-21. JSW Steel said “The average capacity utilisation dropped to 76% in June 2020, primarily due to a fall in production at Vijayanagar Works. At Vijayanagar Works, certain employees tested Covid-19 positive, started with an employee who had travelled far away from plant premises on personal work and got infected. This has led to not only hospitalisation of these employees, and an active contact tracing and quarantining of their primary and secondary contacts, but also imposition of restrictions by the local administration on the entry and exit of employees at the plant location. The Company responded promptly and responsibly to control the spread of Covid-19 infection among our workforce and local communities by implementing and intensifying comprehensive prevention and mitigation measures, by leveraging on our existing medical infrastructure and community outreach programme. The Company identified the workforce including those who resided outside township premises critical for operation of the plant and made arrangements to accommodate all of them within the townships premises, thus, completely restricting the movement of personnel into and out of factory premises. The Company has been scrupulously following the guidelines, protocols and instructions issued by the local administration from time to time. It is also heartening to see that a majority of such infected employees have also recovered since. The operations are now stabilising with reduced employee strength.”
