Electrén Achieves a New Certification for its Occupational Health & Safety Management
AENOR’s Certification Committee on Occupational Safety and Health has awarded ELECTREN with its certificate number 0027 for the year 2013, in recognition for OHSAS 18001:2007 conformance of ELECTREN’s Health and Safety Management System.
This standard has been adopted by ELECTREN to contribute to its continual improvement efforts concerning Health and Safety management, and has been integrated into the existing Quality Control and Environmental Management system as a means to better define the processes that affect personnel safety in daily on-site operations.
The rail industry is one of the most demanding in terms of operational safety due to its severe potential risks and the simultaneous need to coordinate swift field operations involving personnel from several companies. Among ELECTREN strengths feature its ability to safely coordinate work shared between different companies, together with the high quality of theoretical and practical safety training for its employees.
