An interesting summit on safety – more in particular on safety in maintenance – was held in Bilbao, Spain, on 22 and 23 November.
Among the worthy companies was Pirelli and representing us was Davide Spanti, HSE manager, Europe & MEA region, who described to delegates the main initiatives we have promoted during 2011.
After briefly focusing on our history, products and factories, Mr. Spanti underlined the importance of health, safety and the environment (HSE) as a result of which accidents at work, illnesses and environmental accidents have been halved. He also described our HSE Week held from 12-16 September, a world-wide Pirelli initiative that involved about 20,000 people in 13 countries.
We have been a partner of the European Agency for Health and Safety since 2009. That organisation’s mission is to make everyone’s work safer, more healthy and productive due to a constant exchange of information with a view to promoting the culture of risk prevention.
