Health and Safety

Ensuring occupational health and safety in all ACS Group companies is one of the pillars of the company’s strategy. Each of these companies and the Group in general maintain the commitment to reach the most demanding standards in this area and so become a reference in health and safety protection, not only for its own employees, but also for its suppliers, contractors and collaborating companies. For example, in 2020, for the first time in the history of the Cobra Group, common objectives were set for the frequency and severity index, combining its own employees and subcontractor employees. This milestone has a direct impact on the variable remuneration of management personnel, affecting them to the same extent the accident rate results for their own employees as well as for subcontracted personnel.

The health crisis caused by COVID-19 during the year required a multitude of measures and actions to ensure the health and safety of all employees, as well as during relations with stakeholders. This was reflected in the increased investment in health and safety during
the year.

For months now, the Group has been turning its efforts to deal with the pandemic. 

Although each company of the group is managed independently and has its own action plans, common principles are followed in managing the safety and health of workers and other stakeholders:

  • Compliance with current regulations on occupational risk prevention and other requirements voluntarily observed.
  • Integration of occupational risk prevention into all activities and at all levels through proper planning and implementation.
  • Application of the principle of ongoing improvement in health and safety management systems, including the performance of the actions necessary to protect employees and third parties in the facilities of each of the companies. 
  • Promotion of training of workers on occupational health and safety aspects, as well as the allocation of the investments necessary to achieve the most innovative techniques for accident prevention.
