"Whatever their job and wherever they work, everyone at our company is responsible for ensuring their own safety, as well as contributing to individual and collective health and environment performance. When in doubt, always choosing safety is their responsibility, and this decision will always have the backing of Senior Management."

We rate safety on a scale of ten to zero. There are 10 Basic Safety Rules that we follow to make our everyday lives safer, and these guidelines are fundamental pillars for us to achieve our goal of zero accidents.
The 10 Basic Safety Rules help us to prevent people from having accidents while performing our operations. All our employees and contractors must follow them.
We firmly believe that our "zero accidents" goal is feasible and to achieve it we work side-by-side with the stakeholders involved in the life cycle of our activities:
We emphasize the importance of improving the Safety Culture to support decision-making at each level of the company. Regardless of their post or geographical location, all Repsol employees are responsible for their safety and for contributing to the safety of the people around us.
We inform and involve the company's employees in the assessment of risks and impacts, and the associated controls prior to undertaking any activity.
Our activities are carried out with operational discipline by duly authorized and qualified professionals, fulfilling the plans and procedures defined for the activities and implementing corrective actions in a timely manner when deviations occur.
The performance of our product and service suppliers is essential to achieve our company's objectives.

The Division of Procurement and Contracts is responsible for rating suppliers and contractors including safety criteria in the questionnaires and audits and evaluating their performance in terms of safety management.
We analyze matters of mutual interest or concern throughout the life cycle of the activities, services, and products.
We confirm that the company has clearly identified and communicated the relevant risks that must be known, addressed, and managed by the stakeholders.
We ensure that our company's products and services meet our customers' safety and environment expectations .
In 2017, we delivered more than 200,000 hours of health, safety, and environment training to nearly 22,000 employees.
Raising awareness among our contractors and suppliers is a basic pillar. We transmit our safety culture to them, ensuring that contractors who enter our facilities have the necessary safety training to carry out their work. We share good practices and procedures with contractors and give sensitization and awareness talks.
We launched a range of recognition campaigns for projects developed at the company, such as the 10 Basic Safety Rules, and recognize the contractor companies that carry out the best safety actions.
We have set ourselves the objective of creating innovative tools and methodologies for our training programs that use the latest technology to facilitate learning. To achieve this, we have developed the following techniques:
