As a strategic pillar, Enel Group reveals its theme: “Safety begins with me”.
Rome, 15 June 2015 - Enel's CEO and General Manager Francesco Starace opened today the International Health and Safety Week 2015 at the Enel Auditorium in Rome. This initiative, in its seventh edition, promotes health and safety as part of a daily commitment of each company employee and subcontractor.
Starace stated that the lives of workers must be protected through safe and responsible behaviour. “For this reason, safety is included in all our specialised technical training programmes and is backed by an effective control system founded on quality, competence, action and verification”, he said.
Commitment to Safety
Over the last five years, the frequency rate for workplace accidents involving the personnel of Enel and its subcontractors has declined by 50%, while the number of serious accidents has dropped by 64%.
Enel has invested 33.3 million euros in health and safety education, information and training activities in 2014. The Group provided more than one million man-hours of training last year and since 2010 has offered a total of 7 million hours.
The results achieved in safety have been recognised by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, in which Enel achieved in 2014 a score of 90/100 in the "Occupational Health and Safety" category.
