Safe working environment
Here in the UAE office we constantly raise and maintain the awareness amongst staff through all departments. Our team of employees who are responsible for health and safety attend training events, fire drills, de-briefs etc. to maintain their skills levels and contribute to the overall quality of Safety and Health environment of the company.
As part of this program we have initiated a “Health day” where we have invited a team of medical representatives who was available to every employee throughout the day. Every employee had the opportunity to have a check up done for their blood pressure, sugar level, weight and height. They were also provided with general recommendation according to their condition. Our managers and employees in our solution division have recently been through their First Aid Training and are certified to offer medical assistance to our employees.
In 2019, we will continue our efforts to secure the safety and health of all employees in DSV.
