People

At Lluch Essence we are committed to creating value with our actions. We understand that it is our responsibility to contribute to a healthier community, causing a positive impact on people, working in strategic alliances and supporting communities, through the definition of five main axes:

Occupational Safety

Occupational safety processes are top priorities for us to protect the health and safety of our employees and strategic partners.

We guarantee compliance with the standard, legal and regulatory commitments applicable to the products and services provided.

There is a complete planning of activities and management model in accordance with the applicable legal requirements, identifying and managing risks and opportunities, obtaining a preventive and planned system. Likewise, responses to emergency situations are planned, with the commitment to adopt the necessary procedures aimed at identifying foreseeable emergencies at the facilities through a systematic analysis: preparation, verification and revision of emergency plans, including any external coordination procedures that may be necessary.

We defend freedom of association and recognize the value of collective negotiation, which is why we maintain a fluid relationship with the Worker’s Legal Representation to reach beneficial agreements for all parties involved.
