The Health and Safety Commitment Plan was created with this in mind. This cross-cutting project promoted by senior management represents an irrevocable commitment, applies to all countries while adapting to the social reality in each one, and also applies to all employees and partner companies.
The Health and Safety Commitment arose from the challenge to foster a cultural change within the Gas Natural Fenosa Group by underpinning the belief that it is a responsibility for management and individuals, guaranteeing the health and safety of all those involved, converting us into a benchmark in this field worldwide and establishing this commitment as a strategic lever towards standardisation and efficiency, streamlining results and striving towards a zero accident rate.
We undertake numerous activities aimed at raising awareness, so that health and safety issues are taken on board as personal concerns and commitments by all the group’s employees and contractors. In short, the goal is for everyone to be constantly mindful of the principles that steer the Gas Natural Fenosa policy in this regard:
Nothing is more important than health and safety
Every accident can be avoided
Safety is a Management responsibility
It is also an individual responsibility
All work should be planned and carried out with safety in mind
By implementing the Health and Safety Commitment, the accident rate has been reduced by 54% in less than three years throughout the group. However, we are not happy with simply complying with legal obligations and we are committed to ongoing improvement.
