The first measures to protect against the spread of the coronavirus were taken by Pesa back in mid-February 2020, as, in connection with the provision of maintenance services for foreign customers, such as the Italian railways Trenitalia, employees of the company remained in areas where outbreaks of coronavirus were detected.

A special group to fight the coronavirus was created which continues to work today, and a preventive and educational program #bezpieczniwpesa has been launched.
