Zero accidents goal


Zero accidents goal

Adhorna, an Elecnor Group subsidiary, committed to the objective of zero accidents 

Commitment to the health and safety of its employees, has been a priority for the Elecnor Group since its beginnings. Along these lines, the Group is working towards the objective of zero accidents, zero tolerance of non-compliance with preventive measures and the continuous promotion of safe behaviour among employees.

Prevention of accidents: What are Elecnor’s corporate policies in this area?

This commitment to avoiding accidents has been formalised in the Group’s Integrated Management System, which covers aspects of the environment, quality, health and safety, energy management, R&D&I management, information security and risk management.

These seven driving forces make up the Integrated Management System Policy of the Elecnor Group, each with its own specific objectives and strategies, but all with the same mission: the continuous improvement of the organisation.

In terms of health and safety, with the objective of accident prevention, the guiding principles reflected in the Integrated Management System Policy are as follows:

  • Supplying the necessary material resources.
  • Emphasis on training in prevention techniques.
  • Development of awareness campaigns for the whole Group.
  • Ongoing on-site inspections and audits and adoption of suitable corrective measures, to correct the source of the shortcomings.

Health and safety management at the Elecnor Group

Health and safety management at the Elecnor Group is conducted with the conviction of minimising or eliminating the risks that may arise as a consequence of the development of a project. These are the basis for all policies aimed at preventing accidents in the workplace.

This risk is mainly linked to work at height, electrical hazards, handling large loads, confined spaces, etc. Furthermore, the risk of road accidents is representative due to the great number of vehicles permanently on the move.

Within the Management System there is a procedure for the investigation into work-related incidents which defines responsibilities and actions, including the use of corrective measures to avoid accidents. 

Finally, the creation of awareness-raising campaigns on accidents in the workplace and the audit of sites and other types of projects are also necessary to reduce the number of accidents in the workplace.

Using these measures, the Elecnor Group’s objective is to reduce the number of work-related accidents among its staff to zero.
