The safety of our employees and customers is paramount.
In order to closely monitor and manage the Coronavirus outbreak in our locations, coronavirus task force has been established in Maraba Al Iraq Al khadraa company and provides the necessary information to all employees and relevant operations.
We are constantly monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and following guidance from the Centers for Disease and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as internal health experts. Our tiered HSE emergency response plan and supporting risk mitigation efforts focus on ensuring the safety of our employees as well as the customers and vendors with whom we work.
An employee who is ill is directed to stay home. For individuals who have COVID-19 symptoms, we have directed additional self-quarantine guidance following CDC and health expert directives.
For business-essential operations where on-site work is required, employees should adopt social distancing, regular cleaning, and other precautionary measures aligned to each location’s response plan.
Where possible, we have adopted remote working and are encouraging our employees and customers to collaborate virtually using information-sharing tools.
Additional domestic travel restrictions align to local authority guidance to further minimize exposure. Facility and customer location access controls have been implemented at a local level based on local authority requirements.
Locations have implemented measures to align with local authority and/or customer requirements for work location visits.
Our category management, sourcing, and logistics teams continue to work closely with suppliers, freight forwarders, and internal stakeholders to minimize any disruption to our supply chains.
We continue to work with our extended value chain and utilize our tiered crisis response to mitigate the evolving risks and ensure ongoing business continuity to deliver critical goods and services to our clients.
