SAFETY IS OUR MAXIMUM PRIORITY, AND THEREFORE WE CONCENTRATE ON CREATING A RISK-FREE WORKPLACE AND ON OFFERING A SAFE PLACE FOR SHOPPING.
The Company has a Health and Safety Compliance Program, the purpose of which is to identify any and all legal provisions that must be followed in each market; develop the necessary policies and procedures; train our associates in these matters; and monitor our compliance levels. In addition, there is a Health and Safety Committee for Mexico, which meets to review and vote on safety initiatives that are meant to prevent accidents and fires that can harm our associates, customers, and suppliers.
Our associates receive digital and classroom training in different fields, such as Health and Safety, Civil Protection, and Emergency Brigades. G4-LA5
Constant audits of the different business units are conducted to detect opportunities and create action plans that will cover the needs found in our businesses. We also document best practices being followed in our different units, and we investigate the causes of accidents that take place so we can prevent any repetitions.
We place special attention on those associates whose job entails a higher risk of accidents or occupational health issues, such as store-level associates, butchers and meat department managers in our stores. G4-LA7
