ABB is supporting global efforts to limit COVID-19

We care deeply about all the communities around the world affected by the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. The health and safety of our employees, customers, partners and the societies we operate in remain our number one priority and we are working hard to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infections. We have taken various internal preventive and protective measures in accordance with ABB’s crisis management and business contingency plans. These measures include restricting access to ABB premises and travel, and promoting “social distancing” and good personal hygiene practices. 

 ABB is continuously monitoring the evolving situation related to COVID-19 and is strictly following the guidelines issued by national health authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO) to limit its spread. Based on local government requests to limit exposure levels, we have made appropriate arrangements for employees to work from home, wherever possible. 

For operations deemed critical by local governments, ABB is continuing to produce products and supply services for essential and critical sectors, including utilities, hospitals and water treatment plants. Measures and processes are in place to protect those working in these operations and to ensure that they adhere strictly to “social distancing” and practice good hygiene. While our top priority is health and safety, we want to assure our customers, partners and suppliers that we are doing everything in our power to support them during these uncertain times.
