Health and Safety

Safeguarding and enhancing worker health and safety are absolute priorities at ACCIAIERIE DI SICILIA.

In accordance with the innovations introduced by Legislative Decree no. 81/08, ACCIAIERIE DI SICILIA has created its own permanent management system for identifying, assessing, reducing, eliminating and monitoring company risk factors.

ACCIAIERIE DI SICILIA’s worker health and safety policy aims at continuous improvement and has led to the adoption of an organisational model for safety in the workplace (Legislative Decree no. 231).

The Prevention and Protection Service promotes a safety culture by means of constant information and the organisation of general and specific training courses covering their various tasks.

The company has therefore launched a major company-wide training scheme that covers all information, educational and training activities.

A fundamental requirement of the entire safety system is the need for a correct and thorough risk assessment that evolves at the same rate as the company grows and develops.

The huge amount of facts and figures on health and safety management available today is processed by the Prevention and Protection Service using dedicated software that is updated regularly on the basis of the risks and the requirements of Italian and European regulations, and linked to ALFA ACCIAI’s centralised system allowing a constant comparison of safety issues within the Alfa Acciai Group.

The use of this software also allows constant updating of the company’s risk assessment document whenever there is change in the organisation.

Great importance is also placed on the management of all possible emergency situations.

ACCIAIERIE DI SICILIA implements the first aid and health emergency procedures envisaged in art. 45 of Legislative Decree no. 81/08.

As the result of its risk assessment, ACCIAIERIE DI SICILIA has adopted the prevention and protection measures required for handling emergencies envisaged in art. 46 of Legislative Decree no. 81/08.

The company also dedicates a significant amount of financial and human resources to radiation protection management.
