At Gonvarri Industries we are convinced that our staff is our most important asset. Therefore, for sometime now, Security and Workplace Welfare has been the daily priority of our Company, such as it is defined in our corporate policy.
As such, and with the goal of keeping all our collaborators informed not only within the strict limits of the workplace, almost a year ago we launched the Emotional Driving Challenge. With the latter we wish to reinforce our commitment to the Welfare and Health of our employees, and in this case, road safety (it should be stressed that one in three deadly workplace accidents are traffic-related).
Thus, and with the objective of raising consciousness about road safety issues among our staff, we have created the online informative platform “Traveller’s Backpack.” In it you can access information about the different countries we work in, paperwork and visa requirements for different countries, updated information about risks, and security measures to bear in mind when travelling to our plants abroad. The app also highlights landmarks, what to do in case of emergencies, local customs, medical and hygiene advice, recommendations on how to behave in each area, Company contact people in each country… In general, all the information one needs to know beforehand, during, and upon return from being sent abroad.
