BME

Workplace safety

BME draws up its workplace safety policy on a yearly

basis, carrying out a series of studies and projects to

define the most significant risks, either in terms of

seriousness or frequency, and implements effective

prevention and protection systems. In addition, the

Online Human Resources tool lists the names of the

members of the Evacuation, Emergency and First

Aid teams, as well as the Health and Safety Manual

prepared by the workplace risk prevention company

FREMAP.

Workplace risk prevention programmes are imple-

mented at all BME centres, and regular controls, such

as fire drills, are carried out in order to prevent work-

place risk.

Employee health

BME provides its employees with a healthy working

environment. To that end, BME has a Health Moni-

toring Programme whereby, among other services, it

instructs employees how to act in the event of acci-

dents or serious health problems occurring at work

centres. In addition, primary medical care stations

have been set up at work centres, complete with auto-

mated external defibrillators for immediate response

to cases of cardiac arrest. In 2014 no serious incidents

of this nature occurred.

In addition, BME provides workers with annual physical

check-ups, has contracted health insurance for all

employees and their family members. These insurance

plans cover medical care, surgery and hospital care in

cases of illness or injury, in accordance with the terms

and conditions and in respect of the insured risks. BME

also organises yearly influenza vaccination campaigns.

The medical service also collaborates with the Spanish

Red Cross to encourage its employees to give blood.

In 2014, air quality checks were carried out at BME’s

operating headquarters in Las Rozas and Plaza de la

Lealtad.
