COMMUNICATION GROUP OF SPAIN ETHICAL TRADE FORUMS

COMMUNICATION GROUP OF SPAIN ETHICAL TRADE FORUMS

Having a good Communication tool is important in order to make visible the actions that take place throughout the year at the Forums.

In addition to the periodic meetings in Huelva, Almería and Murcia, and the international meetings in Seville and Murcia, for the past few years a collaborative network developed by the Working Groups has been growing around the forums, consolidating the Forums action lines gradually and helping growers to reaching their objectives.

Within these groups conformed by volunteers from the companies involved, there is the Communication Working Group, conformed by representatives from different regions and with the aim of giving visibility to the Forums work through the different communication platforms that are currently active. The Group is also responsible for implementing some planned actions such as the Best Practices Awards for 2021.

In support of this group, Jesús Ollero, a professional journalist has joined the team recently. He will give an important boost to the group. We want to extend our warmest welcome.

Of course, this group has room for anyone who wants to participate, in which case you should contact to:  comunicacion@conexionsocial.com

ON-LINE SEMINAR COVID-19

ON-LINE SEMINAR COVID-19

On April 14 and 15, the online seminars focused on the Covid-19 were held in which nearly 100 attendees participated.

There were two sessions of just over an hour, in which Tamara Garrido from S&A Produce and Guadalupe Jaldón from SAT El Dorado explained in detail the tool developed by the Covid-19 Working Group.

After an extraordinary presentation, the attendees raised some questions about the content of the document and its application in companies. During the discussion, additional content and material were provided, which was later incorporated into the final document.

All the attendees who filled the event survey later, confirmed that they were going to implement this tool or parts of it at their companies.

Covid Guide 19: RISK ANALYSIS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF MEASURES AGAINST COVID-19 FOR AGRI WORKERS

Dear friends,

Today, the Working Group of the Ethical Trade Forums “Covid-19” shares with all of you the document we have prepared to meet the Covid-19 challenge in the workplace. From here we appreciate the work done by the members of the group for their dedication and generosity in the elaboration of this document.

The document is called: ‘RISK ANALYSIS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF MEASURES AGAINST COVID19 FOR WORKERS OF AGRICULTURAL COMPANIES»
You can see how it is a document that can be read fairly quickly and contains practical tools that can help you improve safety and prevent accidents or incidents related to Covid-19. Among these tools is the Risk Analysis that is necessary in your companies and cooperatives. We hope it will be useful to you.

Next Tuesday, April 14th at 11am, the Group will hold an online seminar to explain both the document and the appropriate way to use it. A round of questions and answers will be included so you can have the chance to ask your questions and add your comments. Also, those who request it will be sent the document “in open source” as we usually do so you may use what you need and adapt it to your needs.
This document is open to improvements and that is why we are looking forward to your comments, complaints and suggestions.

The Group is now looking for more volunteers who want to address other aspects related to Covid-19, including labour procedures for workers affected by the virus and impact of it related to hygiene and consumer safety conditions. If you are interested in participating, please do not hesitate to communicate it.
