We know that the health of our employees has a definite impact on their work performance and consequently our performance as a company. In light of the foregoing, we organized in conjunction with the Ministry of Health, the vaccination campaign against influenza, as conducted annually.
We are aware that each of our employees has a particular condition in their state of health, so we address every aspect in this area with comprehensive measures of prevention and correction. Internationally, we promote a safe working environment by creating committees to design, implement, oversee and guide safety programs at work to identify and address the issues, risks of diseases or conditions that harm the well-bein g of our staff.
In the particular case of Colombia, there is a Joint Committee on Safety and Health at Work (COPASST), the Coexistence Committee, and Emergency Brigade. Similarly, in Ecuador there is Joint Committee on Health and Safety, complying with the local occupational health and safety regulations.
As a result of our commitment to the mitigation and prevention of the risk of occupational accidents, we have created specific policies and guidelines on safety, hygiene and occupational health. In addition, we have implemented in our evaluations to suppliers considerations to contemplate in their operations in order to ensure a healthy and safe workplace environment for their employees, eliminating and minimizing risks to personnel, infrastructure and environmental damage.
