“All workers: sharing our good practices”. This was the theme of this year’s safety month at Eiffage. The celebration concluded with presentation of the awards for Good Practices in what has been named the “Safety Challenge”. The purpose of this initiative is to involve all employees in the goal of enabling them to improve their own safety conditions. At the end of July, three best good practices were selected from among all the pre-selected candidates. These are the ones that will go on to compete in Paris with the winners from the different business groups that make up Eiffage’s Energy branch.
The winners were:
-Juan Francisco Belmonte Vandelvira, with a portable tool for moving electrical panels weighing up to 1,000 kg. He received 16 points and a 65-inch LED television. -Juan José Rincón Nogales, with a distress bracelet connected to a worker’s mobile phone. He received 14 points and a 55-inch LED television. -Inmaculada Concepción Martínez Pérez, with a ladder equipped with a platform, safety handrail and two wheels to facilitate movement. She received a tablet.
Our CEO and General Manager, José Manuel Martínez, presented the awards. The awards ceremony was held at the Eiffage Energía headquarters, from which a connection was made to the Zaragoza delegation, where Juan José Rincón Nogales works. Accompanying José Manuel Martínez were: Domingo Molina, National Director of Distribution and Installations, Juan Pérez, Regional Director of the Central Zone, and Joaquín Villar, Director of High Voltage. This activity is part of Eiffage’s occupational safety improvement process. The related objectives are to encourage and promote comments and ideas on best practices in all types of risk situations, and to know how to identify and analyse high-risk situations and define preventive actions to be implemented.
Safety, one of Eiffage’s mainstays
Occupational risk prevention is one of our mainstays. This is demonstrated by the company’s low accident rates. At the moment, our Joint Prevention Service comprises more than 55 senior technicians in occupational risk prevention. These officers are distributed throughout the different geographical areas in which the group operates. In addition, they are specialised in all of the company’s lines of business.
