Our top priority is the safety of our employees and the environment in which we operate.
Our vision is to ensure people’s safety and to protect the environment at all times. For such purpose, we provide all our employees and leaders with the knowledge and skills required to achieve zero accidents.
The Safety Foundations are Exolum’s basic safety principles. They provide the information required to perform common tasks in the safest possible manner.
Highest level of safety and reliability
Each employee or collaborator has an active commitment and responsibility for their own safety as well as those around them.
Safety planning and control
We set annual safety targets and establish measures to achieve them.
Supplier and contractor engagement with safety policy
We assess and select our contractors and collaborators based on safety criteria, and require that they conduct themselves in accordance with our internal rules..
Continuous adaptation to regulations and excellence criteria
We strictly comply with the legislation governing the different infrastructures, operations and systems, and take account of the most exacting international standards, particularly for areas not covered by any specific legislation.
Employee helth and safety
We are committed to contributing to the protection of health and our surroundings, and are familiar with the effects of the processes and products we handle.
Communication, information, consultation and participation
We encourage our employees to communicate openly on risk prevention matters, promoting their participation and collaboration and identifying opportunities for improvement.
We provide ongoing training in health and safety in the workplace to Exolum employees and our collaborators.
Engagement with society
We collaborate with the authorities and public and private entities on risk prevention and the improvement of safety conditions, and share our views and experiences for policy development.
Our safety policy is consistent and coherent with our quality and environmental policies.
In Spain and the UK, we have a sophisticated pipeline network for the transportation of fuels. The special characteristics of the materials used in their construction, their design and the protective measures in place, make them one of the safest, most efficient and reliable modes of transport.
To guarantee their safety, we have a “Pipeline Integrity Plan,” prepared in accordance with the best international practices in the industry, which provides for mitigation measures, the frequency of infrastructure inspections, action protocols and monitoring and control indicators.
In Spain, we use a sophisticated satellite surveillance system for safe and efficient pipeline management, and perform regular inspections of the infrastructure on foot, in vehicles and from the air.
We also have good relations with the local authorities and the owners of the land through which the pipelines pass to ensure they are aware of the characteristics of the infrastructure and can count on their collaboration when necessary.
