Commitment to safety
An inseparable part of our organizational culture
Safety is fundamental and non-negotiable, and it must guide all of our actions and commitments. Our safety culture encompasses the behaviors, beliefs, and values that all of the people at our Company share as a way of controlling the risks present in our activities.
Our aim is to pursue our "zero accidents" goal, and we focus on facilities, processes, and people to achieve it. Prevention, incident analysis, communication, and improvement measures help us to control and manage risks.
