Safety in the workplace
Snam has included in its ESG Scorecard, an annual target up to 2025: IpFG (combined index of frequency and severity for employees and contractors) < average last 5 years
The entire Snam Group has the certification of the occupational health and safety management systems according to standard ISO 45001
All 2021 was characterised by the significant attention paid by the entire Group to the issue of health and safety
The health and safety issue is one of the fundamental values on which Snam's business is based. In fact, the Company has always been committed to respect the standards for the workers' safeguard and the safety at work in compliance with regulations and the applied "CCNL" (National Collective Bargaining Agreement). During 2021, due to the Covid-19 emergency, particular attention was paid to the protection and safeguard of workers' health with a series of initiatives. The Company has:
- created a Shared Health Protocol regulating measures to combat and limit the spread of the
Covid-19 virus in the workplace, defined between the Government and social partners;
- integrated the Risk Assessment Documents, considering the INAIL methodology on measures to limit contagion in the workplace;
- organised a constant and widespread information campaign towards all workers;
- set up a Committee for the application and verification of the rules established in the Protocol.
How Snam works to prevent accidents
|Reducing the risk factors typically associated with
our work by means of risk assessment activities
In order to identify the possible risks present in a workplace and to analyze, evaluate and prevent situations of danger for the workers, the assessment of all risks is carried out with the consequent elaboration of the document required by Legislative Decree no. 81, 9 April 2008.
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.
(improvement and prevention plans)
In a philosophy of continuous improvement in performance, together with consistent commitment carried out with levers such as training, technological innovation, and work organisation, Snam keeps on applying the “Snam4Safety” project to further strengthen the culture and awareness of health and safety issues on the part of all the personnel and contractors. In spite of the difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the project continued in 2021, with the finalisation of a coaching activity for Operations Managers and Prevention and Protection Service Managers (ASPPs), with the support of DSS Sustainable Solutions Italy. The project will also continue in 2022, extending its activities also to non-regulated business companies. 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 in the form of welfare credits.
Besides, during 2021, an initiative was undertaken in collaboration with the "Leadership in Health and Safety Foundation (LiHS)" which aimed to involve all the operational management of "Business Unit Asset Italia" to make it a protagonist, through the exercise of its own leadership, of the process of safety culture changement.
|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. An initiative to raise awareness is also dedicated to contractors: the "Contractor's Safety Prize". Specifically, the performance of businesses is evaluated by collecting and analysing specific indicators (e.g. accident indices and negative feedback on the subjects of interest).
Concerning the “Zero Accident Award" personnel are divided into standardised teams identified by operational unit/safety manager.
In 2021 10 teams involving a total of 1.296 employees received the award.
