The General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM) and the Moroccan Institute of Standardization (IMANOR) concluded, Tuesday in Casablanca, a partnership agreement to promote the “Tahceine” label among Moroccan companies, especially very small, small and medium enterprises (VSEs).
Signed by Chakib Alj, president of the CGEM and Abderrahim Taibi, director of IMANOR, this agreement will enable the promotion of this label, which aims to guarantee the conformity of the preventive and sanitary measures adopted by companies, ensure maximum safety for employees and other stakeholders and allow a serene economic recovery.
This initiative is in line with the actions undertaken by the CGEM for the accompaniment and support of its members in the management of the crisis induced by the pandemic of the new coronavirus (Covid-19), underlined, on this occasion, Alj.
“Today, we have no choice but to live with this virus and this means that companies, particularly SMEs, must put in place compliant and effective health systems to protect the health of all stakeholders,” Alj noted.
The adoption of the “Tahceine” label, which incorporates all the provisions of the joint protocol, will help to “ensure economic activity in optimal sanitary conditions,” he added.
For its part, Taibi indicated that the objective of this partnership is the promotion of this label which will allow companies to control the health aspects related to their activities and especially to ensure the continuity of these activities in the best conditions.
The said standard incorporates international best practices so as to enable the company to manage its activities with greater assurance, he said, noting that the standard aims to integrate health conditions into those of global management.
The “Tahceine” label reference system, set up by IMANOR, details the various measures and actions to be implemented in order to ensure the continuity of industrial activities and services in optimal sanitary conditions and to strengthen the confidence of partners and authorities in companies.
This reference system integrates all the provisions of the joint protocol of the Ministry of Industry, Trade, Green and Digital Economy and the Ministry of Labour and Professional Insertion on the management of the risk of Covid-19 contamination in the workplace.
