Deconfinement measures, what are the issues to take into account

Following government and public health directives, companies can allow the resumption of any activity they deem necessary. They can allow some of their employees to return to the workplace.

In the current epidemiological context, employers must help protect their workers by implementing basic infection prevention measures and good hygiene practices in their environment.

What are the legal obligations to respect?

For the employer, he must take all measures necessary to protect the health and ensure the safety and physical integrity of the employee.

For the employee, he must take all necessary measures to protect his health, safety and physical well-being and take care not to endanger the health, safety and physical well-being of persons in the workplace or nearby.

What measures are to be put in place.

The employer must first identify an OHS (occupational health and safety) resource person who will develop an action plan related to the pandemic. If an OSH committee exists, it must be mandated to apply the new regulatory requirements.

The proxy (s) has the following role:

Ensure the transmission of safety and health instructions to his peers;
Participate in STT training related to the pandemic;
Participate in information meetings;
Participate in the identification of risk factors in its service;
Inform the immediate supervisor when a risk is identified and provide corrective measures

Risk factor analysis must be carried out:

Each department must complete the risk identification table
The risk analysis table collates the information by direction, namely the mode of work which is preferred by employee, either in telework or in face-to-face compulsory
Risk factors are identified
Modified tasks are indicated

It is essential to apply the sanitary procedures limiting contagion by a physical distance of at least 2m and to ensure a regular hand washing.


The workplace must therefore be adapted in order to reduce risks. Office spaces must be readjusted in the event of a pandemic and cleaned after each use by a worker.

Apply hygienic measures with materials, tools, equipment and frequently touched surfaces such as telephones, desks, chairs, filing cabinets, door handles, etc.

What is the lifespan of the virus:

4 hours on copper;
24 hours on cardboard;
48 hours (2 days) on stainless steel;
72 hours (3 days) on plastic.

To limit transmission, the employee must also follow hygienic rules, taking care not to endanger the health, safety and physical well-being of people in or near the workplace. Several items can be made available such as masks, gloves, visors, disinfectant, etc.

The person leaves the establishment
Premises and objects are immediately disinfected
People who have been in contact are notified of the situation and asked to monitor their situation

The computing in industrial environment

The challenges of decade

Since the arrival of the digital technology, companies know a real transformation which have considerable consequences on their competitiveness, their investments and the development of the skills of their employees.

With the industry 4.0, the industrial companies deal with a new industrial revolution imposing new challenges and new manners to make. All the processes are brought to be seen again.

Thus what are these main challenges which impose an acceleration of the changes of the operational processes in industrial environment? At first, before describing the challenges, it is necessary to understand the stake! Several factors intervene imposing these operational changes. At first a concern of profitability, lack of workforce, reduction of the deadlines of manufacturing, new methods of fabrication and more still. In answer to these stakes, various challenges must be raised. Thus here are some.

  • Setting-up(Presence) of management systems – ERP / CRM / SIG / DMP
  • Adapted communications tools – machine-machine, human-machine
  • Management of the data in cloud – cloud base
  • Connectivity – iot
  • Development and preservation of the skills – on-line Training(Formation)
  • Several others

For each of them correspond computing needs adapted to the needs for every company:

  • Data management
  • Data security
  • Human-machine interaction
  • User interface design
  • Software development
  • Data science
  • Analytics

The major stake which thus face companies is to integrate these new resources. It is a question of finding the most adequate approach so that the company manages to re-configure its value chain and so that it protects or builds its competitive advantages. In spite of all the available computing tools, it remains a major stake which is the in-service training of the employees that must qualify itself in this industry 4.0.

With the aim of raising these new aspects impacting on the industrial companies, OCX proposes a complete analysis to identify what will be the major stakes impacting on this value chain and to support them in these processes to translate operational earnings.

Of an idea is born a product

Thanks to the determination of people fascinated in the quality work, OCX participated in the development of a new border of solar refill for the company Greenerlife. The mandate granted to OCX is to participate in the complete management of the development of a new product dedicated to the refill of electric device of any kind:

– Ideation
– Prototypes and first concepts
– Market study
– Cost estimate
– Tests of validation
– Qualification of the suppliers

During this process, OCX bound himself in the values and the needs expressed by the customer by making sure to respect schedules planned in the beginning of mandate. Thanks to the use of tools specialized in CAD and the 3D printing, OCX could realize several prototypes which were presented to the team of Greenerlife. This product, of a new kind, joins in the contribution of a new offer of product supplying with the energy any time in the environmental protection. With this premise dictated by the team of Greenerlife, OCX made sure to choose materials completely recyclable in the realization of these equipments.

Dedicated to the events and the street furniture, Greenerlife brings a new offer in the field of the green energies.
