Health and Safety
At Global Steel Wire Group we are committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for everyone who works with us. We aim to become an organisation where we all believe in the value of our own safety and that of our colleagues.
Beyond compliance with legal requirements in terms of occupational risk prevention, at Global Steel Wire Group, as part of CELSA Group™, we have been incorporating into our Occupational Health and Safety Management System a whole series of Programmes that allow us to move towards our goal of Zero Accidents.
OPS PROGRAMME: PREVENTIVE SAFETY OBSERVATIONS
As an integral part of our daily activities, we frequently carry out observations of the normal course of work, focused on detecting unsafe acts and conditions and acting to correct them. We involve all employees at all levels, including managers, supervisors, employees and staff of partner companies, in preventive safety observations. These observations are the basis for the creation and development of a preventive culture in our organisation, where we encourage everyone’s participation and identification with the objective of carrying out our operations without accidents.
AUDIT PROGRAMME: INTERNAL, CROSS AND EXTERNAL AUDITS
We maintain a programme of audits at different levels to ensure correct implementation of our own and corporate standards.
Internal audits allow us to review the correct functioning of the systems established for the improvement of safety at each plant.
Cross audits, apart from identifying those points of the system that do not comply with the internal procedures of the plants or with corporate procedures, allow us to identify the best practices existing in the Group’s plants so that they can subsequently be exported to the rest of the units through the creation or modification of corporate standards.
External audits ensure that our safety management systems comply with the most demanding current regulations, thereby ensuring their continuous improvement.
TCR PROGRAMME: RISK CORRECTION CARDS
We encourage the active participation of all our employees in identifying and reducing the risk of accidents and incidents by encouraging each person who detects a situation that endangers health or safety to report it by means of a Risk Correction Card.
These cards are reviewed and evaluated to generate action plans to eliminate these risks.
In doing so, we achieve a multiplying factor, and develop a strong safety culture in which we all act to prevent anyone from getting hurt.
PROGRAMME 10: THE 10 SAFETY RULES THAT SAVE LIVES
We develop, implement and improve performance across a range of safe work standards and practices, which are the cornerstone of our management model.
Behind each of these 10 Life-Saving Rules is a set of standards that define how we carry out our work to achieve zero accidents.
These include leadership – with the example of the chain of command -, work at heights, crane and lifting operations, DECAP (De-energise, Tag, Lock, Secure and Test), teams carrying out repairs or cleaning, entry into confined spaces or high-energy work, among others.
PSAP (PERSONAL SAFETY ACTION PLAN) PROGRAMME
All managers of the organisations that make up the CELSA Group™ must define and maintain a specific safety action plan by which they commit to specific actions to improve the safety conditions of the people under their responsibility.
These action plans are for the most part public and their progress is systematically reviewed by management.
OOC PROGRAMME: ORGANISATION, ORDER AND CLEANLINESS
A prerequisite for accident- and incident-free work and operations is that every area is tidy and perfectly clean during the normal course of work.
For this reason, our safety management system constantly strives to identify and eliminate sources of dirt and to keep everything in its place.
We form teams that continuously strive to improve organisation, order and cleanliness in order to increase efficiency and improve safety.
IAI PROGRAMME: ACCIDENT AND INCIDENT INVESTIGATION
We investigate and analyse each and every one of the accidents and incidents that have occurred, identifying the causes that have originated them with the essential objective of implementing action plans to avoid their repetition.
We pay attention not only to those situations in which people are injured, but also to incidents in which risk situations are detected that must be corrected and avoided, even if there have been no injuries.
We make a special effort to disseminate what we learn from the accidents that have occurred, as an essential educational tool that promotes knowledge about safety at work.
