How Snam works to prevent accidents
|Reducing the risk factors typically associated with
|An in-depth analysis of the causes of accidents can identify possible measures for eliminating, mitigating or correcting risk factors by performing organisational, technical or operating solutions on equipment, plants, workplaces, and by implementing certain methods of operation and conduct.
The actions and results arising from our accident survey are subjected to further analysis at regular safety meetings, during which staff are informed about the causes of accidents and the measures taken to prevent them.
(improvement and prevention plans)
|In 2016, our improvements focused mainly on educating and raising awareness among staff, with a view to promoting safe and careful conduct, on complying with operating and safety procedures and on the correct use of work equipment and protective measures.
In addition, we have our “Zero Accidents Award”, whereby employees commit to achieving 365 consecutive days with no accidents at work on their commute. Every year, the winning team receives a significant reward.
|Specialist training||We provide classroom and on-the-job technical and professional training on these issues, favouring teaching by our own experts and calling on high-quality external training entities and institutions where appropriate.|
|Supplier engagement||Suppliers are evaluated carefully at the qualification stage and then controlled and monitored via feedback and inspections during the work execution phase.
Each year, we hold regular workshops with suppliers to present to them the Company’s strategic plans and to share best operating practice in safety, environmental and transparency matters.
