The Diacore Group of Companies fully understands that protecting the right to life and the right to health can be extremely challenging. This has become apparent as the world was struck by the COVID-19 pandemic. Taking the covid-19 pandemic into account, and any other infectious diseases that may occur at any time without warning, we at Diacore are fully committed to doing all we can to strike a balance between keeping people healthy and safe, whilst at the same time maintaining the business operations of our group of companies where we are able to do so.

  1. We are committed to protecting the right to life and the right to health during these challenging times to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Work from home arrangements will be implemented with staff in the Diacore companies where this is a possibility. However, in our factories, employees are unable to work from home so we will ensure factories are re-organized in a manner to ensure a safe social distance is always maintained between staff. We will adopt the follow risk control measures to protect ones right to health and at the same time ensure employees always have the right to work in the most favorable conditions. Diacore will implement the following:
    1. Reduce physical interactions between workers and visitors and respect physical distancing when interactions do occur,
    2. Improve ventilation in the workplace where this is possible,
    3. Regularly clean surfaces, ensuring workspaces remain clean and hygienic, and
    4. We will provide adequate facilities for handwashing and sanitization and the required PPE/masks to all workers.
  2. Those you have contracted or who may contract the virus need to share this information with their employer and even the government part of the track and trace programs. Such information has the potential to infringe the employees’ right to privacy and right to confidentiality. Diacore is committed to following a confidential procedure for disclosing sensitive information and will continue to honour the relevant staff member’s privacy in the event of their self-isolation.


Failure to comply with the principles laid down in this policy will be viewed as a breach of company policy and procedure and could result in disciplinary action being instituted. Diacore's policies as incorporated into this document will be effectively communicated to management and to all workers.
