Mercedes-Benz Group’s top priority is to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) and to offer our employees, suppliers and service providers a safe working environment. In doing so, Mercedes-Benz Group is guided by current information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and follows the recommendations and specifications of the authorities. We expect the same from our suppliers and service providers.
Please inform Mercedes-Benz Group if one of the following criteria applies when contacting our employees:
- there has been contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case or
- one of your employees is proven to be ill with COVID-19 or
- there is an urgent suspicion of COVID-19 illness (confirmed by a doctor).
The notification can be made via the representative to the Mercedes-Benz Group representative (e.g. responsible key account or purchaser). The representative reports the incident to his superior. Of course, all information will be treated as strictly confidential.
Mercedes-Benz Group expects suppliers to follow the recommendations and guidelines of the authorities for their employees, especially if employees have recently been abroad for several days.
Access to the Mercedes-Benz Group site remains unchanged. However, we ask you to coordinate any attendance appointments with your Mercedes-Benz Group representative (e.g. responsible key account or buyer) in advance. Wherever possible, virtual possibilities of collaboration are to be used (e.g. Video and telephone conferences).
Thank you for your support.
