At Cepsa we have a unique safety culture because everyone’s safety matters. To achieve this we focus on people, processes, installations, and transport, and we collaborate with European industrial associations in the sector.
Safety at Cepsa is priority, both inside and outside the workplace. We have a Health, Safety, Environmental Protection and Quality Policy to reduce the risk of accidents, construct safe installations, and carry out constant maintenance checks. On top of this we have launched plans to strengthen the safety culture and to prevent risks, and a new safety procedure that covers all of our centers, staff, and collaborators. The new procedures assure that all people follow the safety rules and know our life saving rules in the case of an accident.
We have implemented the Processes Safety Management System, which includes guidelines from the Energy Institute with the aim of always improving in safety. We aim to avoid industrial accidents that may happen through this system. We also define the principles to follow, we train our experts and we regularly evaluate our processes to adequately control risks.
To reduce the risks of goods transportation, be it by sea, air, or road, we make sure that all of our drivers have safety training, and we give them guidelines and the tools necessary to guarantee their safety and the environment. In the case of maritime safety, we also follow the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code.
Our main safety objective is to protect our professionals from the moment they leave the house to when they return at the end of the day. Through the support of our Medical Services we guarantee that work risks are in line with the physical and mental condition of our workers at every moment and we promote a healthy lifestyle. To help us do this, we carry out training activities to raise awareness among our professionals regarding driving risks, and initiatives to keep in shape.
Our Product Protection department manages in a responsible way our chemical products over their life cycle to guarantee the safety of our clients, professionals, and the environment.
