HISTORIC: Honda lays off Ohio workers for the first time
With about 14,000 employees statewide, Honda is one of the Dayton and Springfield area’s largest employers.
While some employees will continue to work from home, Honda emphasized that it will take certain safety measures, including scanning the temperature of all employees, suppliers, contractors and visitors.
No one with a temperature of 100 or higher will be permitted in a Honda facility.
Workers will also use masks and face coverings inside all buildings except when eating or drinking. Honda said plants and offices will provide one new mask per day for every employee.
Honda will also require associates to wear face shields in certain areas of the manufacturing plants as an added precaution.
Shift starts will be staggered, as will lunch and break times, to cut down on crowding.

“Each plant is adjusting processes and workstations to achieve social distancing on the production line to the extent possible,” Honda also said in its announcement.
