Employees at Evans Manufacturing’s (PPAI 110747) Nogales, Mexico, facility celebrated Employee Health Week, “Semana de la Salud 2021,” which focused on employees’ health and breast cancer awareness. Health Week is an annual event at the Garden Grove, California-based supplier’s Nogales location and this year included a speech by Nogales Mayor Juan Francisco Gim, with Evans CEO Alan Vaught in attendance.
“Evans is committed to worker safety, health and welfare because our most vital resource is our employees,” says Vaught.
Adolfo Centeno, Nogales plant manager, adds, “Semana de la Salud is an important and festive affair with both cultural celebrations, employee recognition and health screening. It is one of many events we provide to encourage employee engagement and show our appreciation for our Evans team. This year, the event was dedicated to Dr. Judith Alcala, our company physician who passed away from COVID at the end of 2020.”
Recognizing that the psychological aspect is an important part of employee heath, Health Week focused on psychological risk factors in the workplace due to the pandemic. The 2021 Evans Health Week in Nogales also resulted in 250 diabetes tests, 250 hypertension tests, 250 vision tests, 90 cervical cancer tests and 100 oral check-ups and cleanings.
