The health situation generated by the COVID-19 pandemic has an unprecedented negative impact on various economic sectors, with the current need to quickly restart business, reorganize processes, monitor risks, rebuild trust and provide security to customers and employees.
Security, trust and a sense of protection are therefore the guidelines on which companies are now based.
Kaufland Romania has chosen the independent and impartial audit services provided by DEKRA Romania to assess compliance with national and international health and hygiene regulations and protocols for risk prevention and the adoption of continuous monitoring and control procedures regarding the services provided, in order to prevent the spread of COVID -19.
The safety of Kaufland Romania's customers and employees in the current extremely volatile context, represents the main elements of differentiation in the competitive scenario of the Retail sector and the strategic key of the new normality.
Kaufland Romania has chosen the DEKRA audits according to the Trusted Facility Standard for all stores, warehouses and headquarters in Romania (135 stores and 2 warehouses) to evaluate the hygiene measures implemented in the organizational processes, in order to have a complete dashboard on the soundness and reliability of the entire value chain.
The ultimate goal is to assess and, where appropriate, redefine the adequacy of existing health and safety standards and align and strengthen management approaches and staff skills in the current context.
DEKRA audits, scalable and integrated with Kaufland's activities, are conducted through checklists based on key international and local recommendations and protocols:
• WHO (World Health Organization) recommendations
