Occupational health &safety

A safe and healthy workplace throughout the whole Group

We pursue a goal of continuing improvement in all areas of management of the prevention of workplace risks, prioritizing and integrating action plans with quantified targets to address those risks.


Based on these 5 principles, some of the initiatives that are developed in different locations where the company operates are listed below:

  • Programs aimed at helping employees manage both work-related and personal stress, thus improving the mental well-being of employees in the workplace.
  • Sports & health initiatives and sports facilities in the workplace promoting the general health of employees.
  • Flexible working hours and part-time work options offering employees a working schedule that adapts to their individual needs including working from home arrangements.
  • Financial assistance to employees to have access to childcare facilities during the working day.
  • Facilities in the workplace for breastfeeding, offering a space of privacy, comfort, storage and hygiene to employees.

The health and safety of our employees is paramount for the Iberdrola Group, which has reduced the accident rate (T.R.I.R. Total Recordable Incident Rate) by 46% for both its own personnel and contractor companies over the last five years by the end of 2022. It is part of the vision and values of the Iberdrola Group and is central in our decisions and everything we do.

The Group thus has an Occupational Health and Safety Policy approved by the company's Board of Directors, with the following basic principles for action:

  • The quality, productivity and profitability of its activities are just as important as the safety and health —physical, mental and emotional— of the people involved in the value chain, including their psychological and social well-being; these are permanent and fundamental objectives at Group level.
  • The safety of such persons must always prevail. The prevention of work-related injuries and health impairment can be achieved through the provision of resources and training.
  • The integration of occupational health and safety into all business processes is a basic principle of effectiveness, efficiency and collective responsibility.
  • The conception of health as a state of physical, mental and emotional well-being, promoting actions that create environments and living conditions that are conducive to it and enable people to adopt and maintain healthy living habits.
