Covid-19 : our employees safety first

At Kuehne+Nagel France, since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, we have implemented numerous means and efforts to ensure the protection of our employees. These devices will be maintained as long as necessary.

 Employees' safety first

In order to participate actively in the success of the health measures introduced by the French government to curb the epidemic, Kuehne+Nagel France has implemented reinforced protection measures by putting its employees at the heart of the system in order to avoid any contamination.

This requires a strong teleworking policy, with increased distancing and disinfection measures. Our operational teams continue to be in the field and our drivers in contact with our customers. Thus, by preserving the health of our employees, we also contribute to the protection of our customers. Today, keen to go even further, we have decided to audit our measures. This is why, “smart friendly Covid” audits have been initiated according to a specific grid. This grid, made up of 33 points, allows us to evaluate the different measures currently in place for our employees, our subcontractors and external staff. This grid ensures the proper application of our internal “COVID” rules (direction of movement, teleworking, supply of protective consumables (masks, wipes, gel, etc.). Our strategic sites, whether they are logistics, transport or headquarters sites have already been audited with a result of over 92% compliance.

Kuehne+Nagel France keeps heading

Establishing strong barrier measures seemed obvious to us, we are proud to actively participate in health measures to curb the epidemic by using tools that allow us to continue our activity in complete safety. We will continue to make the health of our employees a priority.

We have chosen to put in place strong measures and to assess them through audits in order to guarantee the safety of everyone at all of our sites. Kuehne + Nagel France is therefore committed to the safety of its employees.
