For Genomma Lab Internacional, our collaborators are the heart of the Company, so we value and protect their health and physical integrity as a fundamental part to develop their goals and achieve their personal and professional objectives.
The work efficiency and performance of our employees depend to a large extent on their mood, which is why we care about their health and that of their families. We also recognize that our employees are exposed to musculoskeletal diseases due to repetitive movements and stress. Consequently, we are committed to providing and preserving a safe and healthy work environment without risks through programs that provide information about health and self-care, motivating them to develop their skills both in the workplace as well as in their personal environment.
During 2016 we recorded and monitored the accidents occurred at the corporate offices and the CEDIS Distribution Center. Compared to 2015, the number of accidents at the CEDIS decreased considerably during 2016, with an 80% reduction by men and 100% by women, achieving our purpose of reducing or eliminating them.
At international level only Chile reported two accidents.
Among other activities, this year we carried out the influenza vaccination campaign together with the Ministry of Health, as part of our health and safety programs. In addition, it is important to note that all our employees are represented in the Health, Safety and Hygiene Committees, and in collective contracts managed by the company, as in the case of Brazil, yes, the conditions of health and safety care for the employees of the Company are considered.
Moreover, our commitment to safety in our Distribution Center is reflected through various insurance mechanisms, such as damage insurance to protect our facilities, furniture, machinery and products in case of accident, natural disasters or other conditions of vulnerability to which our valuable capital may be exposed.
