Teams of world-renowned doctors and epidemiologists have all contributed to the creation of the SafeGuard standard. The label thus designed attests the addressing of all the specific risks to the places where people live and work, in addition training and verifying the teams effectively regarding good practices and the adoption of appropriate protection measures.
Cristina Licu, Cris-Tim Quality Director, states: “As a market leader, we needed a partner with international expertise and a well-developed infrastructure to support the requirements in the field. After evaluating many options and other existing providers, it turned out that Bureau Veritas was the best choice. This certificate confirms the implementation of all measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 throught the business space, in all the processing and storage locations and certifies that the communication and implementation of the prevention measures for all employees were done in a perfect manner.”.
“We are proud of the partnership signed with the meat producer Cris-Tim, in their proactive effort to make a difference in the market for their customers and employees. The audited locations, in order to grant the SafeGuard certification, proved to have a healthy and welcoming indoor work environment, supplemented by the measures imposed by the pandemic context, represented by disinfection equipment that ensures the health security of all spaces and surfaces, down to the smallest detail. We address health safety through special methods such as: the use of Ozone Generators and Ultraviolet Lamps – famous for their effectivness against viruses and bacteria, but also through the partnership with specialized third-party companies that provide disinfection of spaces according to a program that works with a high frequency. Ensuring the health and safety of Cris-Tim team is being achieved by providing complete work equipment and a safe working and transport environment. Adapting to the current crisis, we have developed the SafeGuard label to certify that all appropriate safety standards are met, training and cleaning protocols are properly implemented to allow all businesses and retailers to continue to operate their activity with full confidence.” also stated Laura Besnea, Bureau Veritas Romania auditor.
