Ensure the development of all workers (employees, contractors, suppliers, visitors, and other stakeholders) in terms of safety and health through a commitment overtaken by our leadership, assignment of responsibilities to all, effective communication, and collective care.

Actions, alignment, coordination, good practices, and strategies that set responsibilities, programs, and guidance to help make decisions regarding safety and health issues.
Training and Awareness
Safety indicators commonly adopted by companies are accident frequency rates (injuries). However, they are reactive indicators, as they measure the occurrence and frequency of past events.
One of the definitions of safety is the protection of employees through risk management.
Injury rates do not measure risk, nor do they look objectively into existing risk factors.
In line with our strategic goal to see our employees live better, we have developed a new tool to monitor safety performance called PROTEG’s Pro-Active Indicator (IPP).
This indicator considers risk factors that exist in critical activities and the presence of critical precursor incidents in our facilities.
In addition to PROTEG, we also have Cuidar Juntos, Dexco’s Health and Wellness Program, which covers the company’s employees and their dependents across the board. Cuidar Juntos is structured in four pillars:
health-related educational and communication actions and preventive interventions.
strategic occupational health appointments, medical certificate management, and leave of absence management.
actions aimed at employees’ preventive health care, including chronic patient monitoring, mental and emotional health, vaccination campaigns, and pregnant women monitoring.
services and actions focused on employees’ integral health.
In each one of these pillars, actions are developed focused on the employees’ integral health. Learn more about three of them:
Support service for psychological, financial, legal matters and social service orientation for employees and their immediate families. PAP was especially important during the pandemic, mainly for psychological care.
Monitors employees and their pregnant dependents’ pregnancy and postpartum periods, providing support and guidance for each phase to ensure the well-being of pregnant women and their babies, minimizing the risks of premature birth.
Mental health promotion through prevention, identification, support, and rehabilitation measures. These actions represent an advance in the valorization of the employees’ quality of life and consolidation of actions and promotion of integral health.
