Health and Safety

In our properties

We recognize our commitment to take care of our employees, our tenants, their guests and all of those who visit our properties. Hence when it comes to civil protection, we not only comply with applicable regulations but we attempt to go beyond it. With state of the are health and safety equipment, adequate safety and traffic signs and training to our employees and subcontractors.

We have developed prevention guidelines, as well as emergency response protocols; applicable to all our properties. Our main health and safety initiatives in our properties are:

  • Response protocols in all our mix use and retail properties for:
    • Medical emergencies.
    • Natural disasters.
    • Metheorological phenomena.
    • Fire.
    • Public disturbances and others.
  • Drills.
  • Evacuation plans.
  • Human Rights watch.
  • Trainned safety personnel.
  • Insurance: employees, properties, third parties, etc.

Emergency protocols in our operations, ensure adequate identification as well as timely management of risk events.

Routine inspections are performed regularly, visiting each site; such inspections are covered by FUNOs employees, including executives, operational and maintenance teams, in order to ensure equipment's are in optimal conditions and processes are being adequately followed.

Safety personnel

Our activities require subcontracting security personnel. At FUNO, we make sure we procure this service only from professional specialized businesses; at all times, we require them to prevent and avoid whenever possible the use of force and the abuse of power, as well as any abuse of Human Rights.

In all cases, our security personnel are allocated proportionately to existing risks and needs. Similarly, the contracts we have with them are designed to reduce rotation, minimizing operational risks.

Our employees

FUNO, provides its employees with a safe place to work; we take all appropriate precautionary measures, in accordance with the law to minimize risks and avoid danger in our operations. We upkeep the best possible conditions, including temperature automatization, air quality, ventilation and lighting, as well as appropriate cleaning and sanitary spaces for all employees.

EThe right to health is one Human Right we highly value and respect at FUNO; our commitment to take care of those who work for us, go beyond national regulations. According to the Mexican Statistics Institute (INEGI) only 39% of Mexicans enjoy public health care services, at FUNO 100% of our employees either direct or subcontracted are affiliated to Mexican Public health care. Similarly, only 3.3 % of Mexicans enjoy private health care; at FUNO we offer this benefit to 100% of directly hired employees.

All our employees are trained to perform their duties. Particularly those in operational activities are provided with an emergency manual which allows them to quickly respond to emergencies, from natural disasters to safety breaches who may affect our properties.

At large we tend to avoid exposing our employees to toxic and chemical substances or dangerous processes which may put their health at risk. However, in some cases such as maintenance or precautionary activities where it is impossible to avoid handling such substances we provide adequate equipment and training for their activities. Our maintenance department is the one responsible group-wide to inform our operative team on new available technologies or scientific advances, which may benefit or reduce risks in our operations.

To date we have not had any fatality, either in our operations or related to our operations.
