Health, safety and a healthy lifestyle
The safety of our colleagues and customers is our number one priority. Proof of this is also our success, when we were able to reduce the number of accidents at work resulting in incapacity for work by 29% last year.
A safe place to work and shop
We have equipped our Tesco hypermarkets in Central Europe with 347 automatic external defibrillators, which are available to our colleagues and customers if required. In addition, we continue to improve the first aid training offered to colleagues in our offices and have introduced introductory training for all colleagues in the store. We launched the Safety First campaign aimed at our colleagues. It includes simulations of traffic accidents, which allow participants to experience with their own eyes the consequences of not following a safe way of driving and to think about their own way of driving.
Health and healthy lifestyle
We take the health of our colleagues very seriously. We want Tesco to be a great place to work and we want to help our colleagues live healthier lives. We support their healthy lifestyle and at the same time help our customers make healthier decisions with every purchase. Here are some examples of our activities for colleagues from 2019:
- We brought 30,508 kg of fruit for free to colleagues
- We organize regular tastings of products of our own brand - presentation of our products with reduced content of salt, sugar and fat
- We also organize a Health Week for colleagues (help, support and tips for a healthy lifestyle) - 1,367 colleagues had their body values measured and 710 colleagues attended a workshop on a healthy lifestyle.
