Safe distancing measures at Atlantic Nickel

Atlantic Nickel – Protection Actions
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, our priority remains the safety of our people and the communities in which we operate.
Atlantic Nickel has adjusted working practices to protect employees: including enhanced screening, daily body temperature checks on every individual that enters the site, additional PPE equipment and hand sanitizer, and implementation of social distancing measures on the premises and on transport.
So far, these measures have been effective at limiting the spread of the virus and we continue to monitor their effectiveness to ensure our people and communities remain safe.
In view of the situation, the Appian Way Charitable Foundation Trustees approved a number of relief measures at MVV and Atlantic Nickel in order to improve access to hygiene products and equipment within the local communities.
These measures included supporting local manufacturers in the production of masks which will be distributed free of charge to local communities as well as the procurement and distribution of 6,000 units of COVID-19 rapid tests, surgical masks, protection masks and infrared thermometers to the municipalities. We have now donated more than 40 tons of material and equipment to the communities and municipalities.
AWCF is working closely with our portfolio companies to adapt some of the existing social investment programs to address the changing social needs during the crisis.
