HEALTH AND SAFETY
The prevention of occupational risks is a key priority of the company. Employees, vendors and contractors must pay the maximum interest and effort in order to achieve a healthy and safe workplace for all those who provide services in workplaces and facilities.
We have worked to establish a common policy of Health and Safety in all countries where we have presence, with the main goal of “zero accidents”.
In 2008 we decided to establish a management system of occupational risk prevention with current legislation that follows the criteria established in OHSAS 18001:2007 specification, which is internationally renowned.
Based on this management system, a manual on prevention of occupational risks was established in 2009 for Spain. We proceeded to certificate other wind farms, achieving 32 wind farms certified in that year, with 848 MW in total.
By the end of 2010 we had 66 wind farms certified.
1.647 MW are OHSAS 18001:2007 certified in Europe
For the next years, we are working on the development of the management occupational health and safety manuals for the different european countries where we operate, so that the wind farms can be certified also in OHSAS 18001:2007.
In the US we work with a proper system of health and safety management based on the same principles of OHSAS 18001
