Serving the Community
Dannex is committed to improving healthcare. We recognize our responsibility to invest in and support the communities we serve.
We focus our involvement in the community in the country in which we operate, through a range of activities which enhance access to medicines and contribute to the wellbeing of the communities in which we live.
There are two dimensions of community activity at Dannex:
Partnerships, in which Dannex forms an alliance with local leading non-profit organizations to advance social causes, supported by specific community solidarity activities.
Donations, through which Dannex supports many different non-profit organizations and community programs in Ghana through cash donations and donations in-kind (products, equipment and services).
Dannex cares about its employees' safety and strives to be one of the safest companies in the pharmaceutical industry. We are continuously working to improve, by instilling a strong safety culture. Our goal is to achieve a zero accident rate, through our rigorous compliance with safety standards.

Job Safety Analysis (JSA) of safety-related issues of each and every workstation, with the participation of the employees.
Periodic Safety forums and conferences held regularly.
Risk Management and Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) plans incorporated into working procedures, serve as both preventive measures and a means to identify and mitigate potential risks.
Safety training held at each site according to predefined training procedures and training work plans. Both employees and managers participate in direct safety training.
