Beira strives to create a healthy, safe and happy workplace, free from discrimination, exploitation and limitations, where our employees can make a positive contribution to our ethical manufacturing processes.
Beira is a member of SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) and complies with ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) employment guidelines. Beira plays a key role in running and in the on-going development of SEDEX. SEDEX is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains. ETI is a leading alliance of companies, trade unions and NGOs that promote respect for workers' rights around the globe. Gender related grievances are handled through our Human Resources Department and we strive to minimise gender discrimination. Equal salaries are paid for similar jobs, with no gender bias.
Beira also has implemented performance based pay schemes. Meals are subsidised and free regular health checks are provided for all our employees. School books are distributed free for the children of employees at the end of each year. Protective personal wearables such as safety shoes, masks, gloves etc. are also provided to all our factory employees.
Furthermore, we are a OHSAS 18,001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Specification) certified organisation. OHSAS 18,001 (officially 'BS OHSAS 18,001:2007') is an internationally applied British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems.
