Health and Safety

The Occupational Health and Safety, is one of the strategic pillars of Dragados. We maintain the commitment to chieve the highest standards of Health and Safety management and so become a reference in Health and Safety, not only for its employees, but also for its suppliers, contractors and collaborating companies. The main challenge lies in designing and implementing, in all its operating fields, a Health and Safety Policy which meets expectations. Furthermore, the company considers it fundamental to reinforce its commitment with the Health and Safety  culture through an integration and optimization of resources.
