Employee Health and Safety First

“At Corteva, the health and well-being of our employees is paramount and our actions, which are guided by the latest, most reliable medical science, reflect that.”

 — Dr. Paul Gannon, MD
Chief Medical Officer

Since the early days of the coronavirus outbreak, Corteva Agriscience has taken steps to help protect the health and safety of our employees, their families, their colleagues and their community. We have engaged crisis management teams at the country, regional and global level, and our Integrated Health Services Pandemic & Infectious Disease Planning Team has been monitoring the situation and developing guidelines and protocols that have been communicated to all of our employees globally. We have taken special measures including:

  • Suspending all international travel and restricting all other travel to business critical
  • Cancelling participation in internal and external meetings
  • Instituting self-quarantine for employees with symptoms or any possible exposure
  • Moving to site essential employees only at our facilities and encouraging work from home wherever possible to reduce exposure
  • Conducting enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of our sites and increasing frequency of cleanings
  • Screening contractors and visitors to our sites
  • Encouraging our employees to follow WHO and the Public Health Agency of Canada guidelines for handwashing and social distancing
  • Conducting tests of our “I’m Okay System” for tracking employees who may need assistance


The health and safety of our employees is our top priority.
