Abengoa, awarded in Chile one more year in terms of Safety

June 14, 2022

  • For the sixth year, Abengoa is recognized in the honor roll of the Chilean Chamber of Construction, in the six-star category

June 14, 2022 – Abengoa, an international company that applies innovative technological solutions for sustainable development in the infrastructure, energy and water sectors, has received the highest recognition from the Chilean Chamber of Construction for its low accident rate in the period 2021. This is the third consecutive year that Abengoa has obtained this diploma, the highest value, in the six-star category. 

Specifically, the Chilean Chamber of Construction, in accordance with the rules of the contest, has verified that the company met all the requirements to opt for the honor roll in occupational health and safety. This distinction recognizes those companies that stand out in terms of occupational safety for meeting eight measurement parameters in the last year: accident rate for temporary disability less than 20%, accident rate equal to or less than 1.0%, meeting an occupational disease rate not greater than 0.19%, no fatal accident, no permanent disability of over 40%, and a current certified occupational health and safety management system. 

This honor roll in risk prevention, carried out by the Chilean Chamber of Construction since 2000, aims to promote a culture of safety and risk prevention among the associates of this organization in the country and for Abengoa to be recognized, account of the consolidation of the occupational health and safety management system implemented for more than two decades. 

In the words of Leonardo Virán, corporate head of safety, “maintaining and reinforcing our risk management policy is key to achieving low levels of accidents and occupational illnesses. It is necessary to further commit all those responsible involved in risk prevention tasks, making them participants in the evolution and decision making of the company and the measures adopted by management. Besides, identify risks not considered and incorporate them into the evaluations, permanently updating the system, and thus continuously improving it, in order to keep it alive. In the same way, it is essential to plan properly, identify the needs and expectations of occupational health and safety in each of our processes. This activity is basic and strategic to feed the management system based on ISO 45001/2018 implemented”. 

Finally, Sergio Morrone, general manager, on behalf of Abengoa Chile, called for commitment, for the care, health and integrity of our staff and their collaborators in all the work they undertake.
