The business has documented proof of awareness raising with employees on HIV/AIDS, all other contagious and infectious diseases and general well-being

What does this mean?

  • As a responsible business operating in a climate where such contagious and infectious diseases can be common, it is necessary to raise awareness on these issues with all employees.
  • The best way to do this is to make contact with your local clinic or mobile clinic to ask them what initiatives they are busy with and how they can involve you and your employees.
  • It is suggested that these awareness raising campaigns take place at least annually with all employees.
  • In addition it is also a good idea to put up posters on the prevalent issues in for example; the employee change rooms or bathrooms and also to make condoms available for employees and even for guests.
  • It is also recommended that the business appoint a peer counsellor on the staff to assist others with the above.
