The Health and Safety OF THOSE OF US WHO MAKE UP SACYR IS KEY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE GROUP.
At Sacyr we have adopted the concept of integrated safety and, accordingly, we have an Occupational Health and Safety Policy aimed at improving working conditions and raising the level of protection, health and safety of our employees.
- Foster leadership and the OHS culture.
- Assume that health and safety is as important as quality, productivity and excellence in its activities.
- Promotion of well-being and of a healthy lifestyle and the provision of safe and healthy working conditions.
- Identification of the possible risks in all phases of our activities. reducing them to the lowest possible practical levels.

CERTIFIED OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
In addition to fully complying with all legal requirements, all Sacyr Group companies are implementing occupational health and safety management systems certified under the ISO 45001 Standard, the principal international benchmark for occupational health and safety, replacing the OHSAS 18001 standard.
The internal requirements arising from this System exceed those legally stipulated in the countries in which the company is present, and from the activities performed. A Health and Safety Department has been put into place with more than 231 health and safety professionals charged with the on-going management and control of the System through the processes of monitoring and control, internal audit, management review or change management.
Therefore, during 2020, we have performed an inspection on the System once again, adapting it to the new needs of the Group in each country, transforming it into an international procedure protocol. As a result of this work, we have successfully passed ISO 45001 legal and compliance audits on the occupational health and safety management system implemented at the work centres of Sacyr Group companies.
COVERAGE OF THE OHSMS (OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM)
The Management System is implemented at 242 group companies (197 in 2019), of which 54 have ISO 45001 certification (45 in 2019), under UKAS (international) or the Spanish National Accreditation Entity accreditation, which represents over 68% of the Group based on the total volume of workers (60% in 2019).
In order to obtain the ISO 45001 Certificate, internal audits were carried out at a total of 144 work centers involving 9,640 workers, which means that 19.53% of the total workforce was sampled, while 60 work centers involving 4,943 workers (8.90%) were sampled for the external audit.
IDENTIFICATION OF HAZARDS, RISK ASSESSMENT AND INCIDENT INVESTIGATION
This OHS Management System aims to contribute to correctly identify, review, manage and improve the control of the occupational risks, which guarantee that all our work is performed in line with a strict initial analysis of the work and its associated risks, together with the implementation of preventive measures to eliminate or reduce them.
Sacyr has a procedure for which we have opted to catalogue accidents under the US OHSA standard, which enables an equal internal standardisation of information and comparison with top-ranking rivals.
OCCUPATIONAL ACCIDENT INJURIES AND PROFESSIONAL ILLNESSES AND DISEASES
The Sacyr Group’s efforts in the field of Occupational Health and Safety has enabled significant progress in workplace quality, basing ourselves on an internal scoring system that serves as an indicator to verify the status of each work centre
The Sacyr Group has made progress towards forging the desired safety culture. Evidence of this can be seen in the downturn in accident rates in recent years.
The Prevention Service carried out the usual investigation for these cases, analysed the causes and took the necessary measures to prevent any reoccurrences.
