Occupational Health and Safety Policy

At EDPR, it is a top priority to guarantee the health, safety and well-being of employees and contractors. This commitment is supported by our Occupational Health and Safety Policy.

Health & Safety Management Systems

To achieve our zero accidents goal, EDPR has implemented health and safety management systems based on the OHSAS 18001:2007 specifications. The standards and procedures of these systems are adapted to the specific geography of the sites where they are used, and are developed based on each country’s regulations and industry best practices. EDPR takes a data-driven approach in order to identify and react to leading causes of injury. The implementation of these systems allows for better management and prevention of future accidents, with the objective of zero accidents overall.
