Reintegration of IDIVAL researchers

24 de May de 2020

In order to carry out the reinstatement of the researchers to their jobs, IDIVAL has held meetings with the researchers and with the Health and Safety Committee to initiate the de-escalation of some of its workers.

In order to carry out a safe reinstatement of workers, general de-escalation rules have been developed, a general procedure for returning to IDIVAL activity and the biosafety manual for laboratories has been updated. This documentation together with information from the Ministry of Health has been sent to investigators.

The main aim during this de-escalation process has been an orderly, progressive return, always prioritizing the safety of workers. In the first phase of reincorporation, groups have started that have active projects and are unable to carry out telework. For all of them, IDIVAL has provided PPE to the workers and they have been informed about their uses.

Among the services that have been reincorporated to IDIVAL are the Technological Services which are available but it is necessary to make an appointment by email or call by phone before going. The contacts and telephone numbers of the different technological services are as follows:
