Safety week in Bioiberica

3 Sep 2018

Protecting and promoting employee and collaborator healthcare is an essential requirement for Bioibérica. For one week each year, different drills are organized both in the industrial area as well as in the offices in order to practice situations included in the company's Self-Protection Plan.

We conducted a practical exercise with the water conditioning systems that we have and part of the foams that we have in the solvent basins, and, by chance we were unloading a truck with pure acetone and we also tested our entire water safety arch.

We don't anyone to get hurt, no matter how slightly, even more so if it's serious, and of course we ensure that the environment is the most favourable and friendly possible in this sense.

The most important aspect in this case and what we have integrated well is that safety is an issue for everyone, from the first person to the last.
