Tubacex Group >> Health, Safety & Environment >> Health & Safety

For the Tubacex Group, safety and human health are two of their top priorities. In this context, safety is one of the key principles included in our Mission statement, which establishes that people making up the group are one of the Company's main assets. The Management's commitment is made patent in the following message: “We strive to grow professionally and humanly, working in a safe and pleasant environment." This message is expressly set out in the General Prevention of Occupational Hazards Policy of Tubacex, Tubos Inoxidables S.A. (TTI) and Acería de Álava S.A. (Acerálava).

In order to achieve compliance with this principle, the company's Management decided to implement the Prevention of Occupational Hazards Program, which provides a standardized work method.

The Prevention of Occupational Hazards Program in these companies comprises 18 Management activities regulated through Procedures which collect the methodologies of action and the responsibilities in the prevention areas to be managed.

Prevention Management activities establish a systematic action method for the continuous identification of risks. This requires the participation of the entire Management line, at all levels and in all the Management areas of the Company, as established in the regulatory reform related to the Prevention of Occupational Hazards (Act 54/03).

Each year, the preventive action to be taken is planned by drafting a Prevention of Occupational Hazards Annual Management Plan with specific goals and people in charge, which helps the Company set a clear direction. Its degree of compliance will show the Management the percentage of program performance during the year.

The operation of the Program, through annual plans, implies a continuous search for risks and the implementation of corrective measures to eliminate or reduce them, which ultimately results in an improvement of the facilities, promoting a culture of safety and health and the optimal behavior of people, while developing training initiatives adapted to the needs of the position in this matter.

Currently, and since 2007, Tubacex, Tubacex Tubos Inoxidables S.A. (TTI), Acería de Álava S.A. (Acerálava) and Schoeller Bleckmann Edelstahlrohr (SBER) have been awarded the OHSAS 18001 certification for their occupational health and safety management systems, placing them in a leading position among Spanish companies in the continuous improvement of working conditions and the prevention of occupational hazards.
