Health and safety of workers

ENAV and Techno Sky, as established in their Code of Ethics, give great importance to the physical and moral integrity of their employees and partners with regard to working conditions that respect individual dignity and to safe and healthy working environments. The Companies are careful, therefore, to spread and consolidate a culture of health and safety of workers in the workplace, developing risk-awareness and promoting responsible behaviour to all the staff.

Employers, in compliance with health and safety at work rules and with the support of the Prevention and Protection Service, carry out the assessment of all the risks of the territorial structures, editing, for each of them, the Risk Assessment Document (DVR), including the risk associated with working abroad; moreover, this evaluation is complemented by periodic environmental surveys related to micro-climate, lighting, noise, indoor air quality, electromagnetic fields and natural sources of ionising radiation (radiogenic matrices, radon gas and cosmic radiation).

In order to reduce the residual risk for their workers and with the aim of a continuous improvement, ENAV and Techno Sky, in line with the objectives established at the beginning of the year, issued their respective health and safety policies at work, the manual of the system of occupational health and safety management (ver. 1.0) and its related procedures.

For what concerns the training, the programmes implemented in the OSH field are divided into courses provided through e-learning and courses run in classroom.

The contents of the courses provided in the classroom were:

  • Initial first aid and update;
  • Initial fire-fighting and update;
  • Initial supervisors and update;
  • Initial workers' representatives for safety (RLS) and update.

In particular, the population of the Parent company ENAV involved in the training activity is made up of all the personnel designated as emergency management personnel for the first and second course, by all those who have been designated as supervisors and by all those elected as workers' representatives for the third and fourth course respectively.

The courses provided by e-learning on the platform focused on:

  • General workers' training;
  • Workers' specific risks training;
  • Workers' refresher.

The first two courses were provided to newly-hired non-executive staff, while the third course was provided to the remaining non-executive staff.

For what concerns Techno Sky, the efficiency of safety requirements in maintenance activities is pursued by defining the processes related to safety at work (risk identification, training, equipment and special tools management, health surveillance, etc.).

The activities carried out by Techno Sky are put into effect by the evaluation of all the risks related to the work activities and the consequent preparation and issuance of the Risk Assessment Document (DVR), as well as by the monitoring of the installations and work equipment.

Likewise, the health surveillance service is guaranteed for the personnel, operational and not, with the frequency established by the specific Health Protocol, and specialised health personnel do inspections of the work environments of the Company’s personnel.

Moreover, the Company, in relation to the multiple activities and works it performs as a contractor, edits, in relation to the specificities of the contract, the Operational Safety Plan (POS) and the Interference and Risk Assessment Document (DUVRI).

ENAV and Techno Sky, in coordination with each other, are also actively involved in preparatory actions to the issuance of their respective OHSAS 18001 certifications.

Special attention is finally given to training in order to develop a culture of prevention of accidents in the workplace and to constantly inform all staff about safety policies.

*It is not possible to make a comparison with the year 2016 because the data is not fully reliable; in 2017, also because of the issuance of the “SGSSL-P. 6.1 Management of the Training for Health and Safety at Work” procedure, work was done to manage the reporting of the OSH training provided or to report for each type of worker the courses attended (e.g., First Aid, Fire Fighting, Workers’ Representative for Safety, etc.) distinguishing it as initial or upgrade or in low, medium or high risk.
