Health and safety in the workplace
We combine speed of execution with carefully controlled quality, so that tasks are performed correctly, once only, avoiding risks. To this end we have unified procedures for Quality and Workplace Health and Safety Management, adapting them to international standards that drive us to be efficient and ensure safe working conditions, as well as committing to a process of continuous improvement.
Although the company’s Quality Management has been certified under ISO 9001, its procedure manuals are also compliant with OHSAS 18001 Standards. This Occupational Health and Safety specification is an international standard that defines Health and Safety system requirements, allowing organizations to control their risks and improve their performance.
We train our personnel and our sub-contractors, raising awareness and creating the necessary skills to be able to carry out all tasks with the appropriate care and risk prevention. We believe that the responsibility for achieving excellence in workplace health and safety is the task of each one of us.
We constantly seek to optimise our work by striving for improved quality in our end product. That is why we have obtained certification under ISO 9001 Standards from Certifying Company Det Norske Veritas (DNV).
We work on the publication and implementation of procedures and manuals, supervised by our internal Quality Control Manager.
Our Unified Management System (UMS) is based on ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. The aim of the UMS is to provide a framework for the Integrated Quality Management and Workplace Health and Safety System and the Environmental Management of Constructora Sudamericana , as well as to communicate UMS policies and strategic objectives to all the personnel involved in the various processes carried out in the company.
In certain specific instances, when the demands of the project call for it, special instructions are drawn up so as to meet contractual requirements, establishing a quality plan based on the particular features of the job.
Regular internal and external audits help confirm that the Unified Management System is being developed according to planned guidelines.
We perform our jobs while protecting all the resources that interact and participate in the different stages of the construction processes, preventing situations that might pollute or damage the environment and demanding that all those involved carry out their tasks in accordance with these regulations, without forgetting our basic premise: "Plan, do, verify and act to attain objectives.".
We adapt our activities for each project to take into account the size of the environmental impact, preventing pollution and protecting nature, complying with both relevant legislation and the requirements of our clients, being certified under the guidelines of ISO 14001 standards.
We provide the working framework to be able to establish and verify environmental objectives and targets, ensuring a continuous improvement process compatible with the job being undertaken.
