Ferrovial is looking for ideas for improving staff health and safety. Get involved! Published on 13/09/2017
Ferrovial will participate in the coming edition of the Barcelona Start-up Week, with a challenge aimed at entrepreneurs, within the field of occupational health and safety. Health and safety is considered a key factor by the company for achieving operational excellence, and we therefore work towards creating risk-free work environments for all, including users of infrastructures and services. Two principles govern the company’s approach: Target Zero and every accident is avoidable.
The Ferrovial Health & Safety challenge
The company has therefore set up the Ferrovial Health & Safety challenge, aimed at generating ideas for improving occupational health and safety. Regarding safety, the onus is on measures to prevent and reduce accidents within our different fields of business, for both workers and those affected by our activities (contractors, users, etc.). In the field of health, we are looking for measures or initiatives aimed at improving staff health.

Any organisations wishing to participate should send their proposals via this link before 24.00hrs on Thursday, 14 September 2017.
