People are at the core of our commitment to safety
When it comes to safety, we pay special attention to people and their values, beliefs, behavior, and attitudes to reduce accident rates in all of our operations.
"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."

Our 10 Basic Safety Rules
When it comes to safety, we go from ten to zero. There are ten basic safety rules that we apply in our day-to-day work in order to be safer and avoid incidents involving people while carrying out our work. These rules are mandatory for all our employees and contractors and are as follows:

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.
We establish the processes and tools for selecting, monitoring, reviewing, and improving the products and services delivered to our company. 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.
Safety and awareness training is essential
Safety training is one of the most effective actions for improving management and performance and preventing risk situations. Our main training programs are related to risk and incident management, safety leadership, driving, safety and transport of people, fire-fighting, and emergency plans.
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.

Innovating in our training and awareness programs
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:
Pioneering technology for a pioneering operation
In 1987, the Yme oil field was discovered in the Norwegian Egersund basin. After 30 years of work on this platform, Repsol decided to relocate the installation using an innovative system that has become a major milestone in reservoir engineering.
