In each country, the appropriate systems will be established locally through health and hygiene committees, temporary commissions linked to the Covid-19 or other dialogue instruments to ensure compliance with the agreements and review any extraordinary incident that may arise up to the control of the pandemic.

The health of all workers is today more than ever, Telefónica's priority and this collaboration agreement between the company and the majority representatives of its workers in all countries will allow a safe return to normality.
