EnerSys, a global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, has continued operations through the COVID-19 pandemic while respecting health guidelines and regulatory compliance to ensure the safety of its employees and customers. In an effort to promote safer business practices both in its facilities and in the field, the company has implemented enhanced hygiene and social distancing procedures to mitigate the risk of contracting or spreading the virus.
“From the start of the outbreak in March, we have prioritized the well-being of our team and that of our customers,” said Frank Shaffer, National Field Services Operations Manager at EnerSys. “While it was important for us to continue providing services during this crisis, especially for our customers who conduct essential operations, it was critical that we first establish specific protocols to follow in an attempt to reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.”
EnerSys has executed these processes based on recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In addition to social distancing and enhanced hygiene-related measures, EnerSys is working to protect employees by limiting contact during deliveries and offering face masks, nitrile gloves and increased sterilization stations.

O’Connell, President, Motive Power Global at EnerSys. “For example, food and medical products are stored in warehouses, which use material handling equipment for shipping and receiving, as well as inventory management. This equipment requires dependable battery service to keep these supply chains working. It’s our responsibility to not only provide our customers with advanced power solutions, but also to help ensure their health and safety during operations.”
