Online seminar “COVID-19 Labor management tool”

Online seminar “COVID-19 Labor management tool”

From the Ethical Trade Forums (FCE) we continue to care about workers in the agricultural sector and their adaptation to new circumstances due to the presence of the Covid-19 virus in our environment.

Therefore, after the presentation of the H&S tool last April, our Working Group has developed a new specific tool on Labor Management, focused on dealing with various labor issues for workers in companies in the fruit and vegetable sector in this new reality. The issues treated in the tool among others are:

  • HR planning: recruitment of new workers.
  • Vulnerable workers, special family situations.
  • Communication in the company: information and training for workers, disciplinary practices.
  • Managing crisis committees and communication to customers.
  • Management, processing of leaves due to Covid19. Investigation of causes of absenteeism.
  • Procedures with Occupational Risk Prevention services providers and mutual services.
  • ETT management.

This document will be presented by the representatives of the Working Group that have developed this tool and there will be time for questions, comments and debate.

The online seminar will be held on two different dates so that attendees can choose the most appropriate session, and both will maintain the same content and the same dynamic. The estimated duration of the seminars is two hours.

These are the dates:

  • Friday, May 15, 2020 (10:00 am.)
  • Tuesday, May 19, 2020 (4:00 p.m.)

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

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.

Here’s the document:Covid19 Risk analysis and implementation of measures for workers at agricultural companies
