Behind the scenes with Thabile Zimase, security guard and Covid-19 prevention officer.

 

Thabile Zimase has been the security guard for Equator – the Belt Factory™ since May 2019 and takes joy in his job. “I enjoy every aspect of my job,” says Thabile. “So far everything has gone smoothly, and I do my job with pride.”

 

When it came to the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, Thabile had to adapt fast and adopt many new tasks and regulations into his daily job. Thabile was now, not only, responsible for ensuring that only authorised people enter the premises, but also screening people for Covid-19 risks and symptoms, and ensuring they properly sanitize before going inside. 

 

“It was hard at first,” says Thabile. “It was a serious change to have more workload and remember all of the important regulations to try and keep everyone safe from the disease. But I knew I had to take it seriously, so I pulled up my socks. I know, with dedication we can overcome challenges that face us.”

 

Thank you Thabile for all that you do for Equator – the Belt Factory™
