Health
& safety

Aciturri has formally established its Occupational Health and Safety Policy, approved by the General Management and integrated with the Environment Policy, with the aim of combating any risk related to the health and safety of the workforce and all persons related to its activity or products, with a focus on continuous improvement. This text defines the company's commitments, with the life and health of people and the quality of the environment being one of the basic cornerstones of its operations, and supports compliance with Human Rights, especially with regard to Article 3 ("Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of their person").

Aciturri uses an occupational risk prevention management system, under the ISO 45001 standard, which covers all companies and facilities.

This policy is public internally, through Nexo, is presented in the welcoming processes, and is publically accessible on the company's website. In addition, contractors accessing Aciturri's facilities receive it through the access management application.

To ensure the deployment of this policy to all the organization's activities and all levels of the organization chart, as well as to its commercial relations, Aciturri has an occupational risk prevention management system, under the ISO 45001 standard, covering all companies and plants (certified by a third party in 90% of the work centers). This management system assigns responsibility at different levels of the organization, with the aim of reducing the accident rate by extending a culture of prevention.

This system includes a series of operating procedures, which allow the commitments of the Health and Safety Policy to be integrated into the day-to-day work of the organization.

The "Zero Injury" project has been extended to Miranda de Ebro and Berantevilla facilities and office staff.

Aciturri provides the necessary information and training to its staff to ensure they are aware of and carry out safe and responsible practices, with the aim of promoting a genuine preventive and environmental culture, focused on the continuous improvement of both working and environmental conditions.

All employees receive training, according to their position, in occupational risk prevention, beyond the provisions of Article 19 of the Occupational Risk Prevention Law (minimum schedule of 20 hours of training in the risks inherent to their position). In 2022, 90.40% of the workforce has received on-the-job training under the requirements of the Metal Labor Foundation (Aciturri's Prevention Service maintains its accreditation as a training entity before the Metal Labor Foundation).

In addition to the above, in order to achieve the objective of reducing health and safety risks, the company considers it necessary to involve the entire workforce, through their legal representatives. In the case of Aciturri, 97% of the workforce is represented by prevention delegates in the corresponding Health and Safety Committees. This figure corresponds to the workforce of the companies and production centers of Assembly, Aerostructures Tres Cantos, Aerostructures Boecillo, Aerostructures Ayuelas, Aerostructures Berantevilla, Aeroengines Orón, Aeroengines Ircio, Getafe, Aeronáutica Tres Cantos, Engineering Tres Cantos, and Aeronáutica Ayuelas and Getafe Aerópolis. With the establishment of the latter Committee in 2022, the percentage of the workforce represented will increase from 94% in 2021 to 97% in 2022.

These Health and Safety Committees have been constituted as Safety, Health and Environment Committees, which allows the legal representatives of the workforce to participate in the objectives, policies and environmental actions, in addition to the strictly preventive ones. This step was taken in view of the interest shown by the prevention delegates in participating in environmental management and improvement.

The rest of the locations do not have workers' representatives, so it has not been possible to set up Health and Safety Committees. However, any person in the organization can establish direct communication with the Occupational Risk Prevention department, through the specific e-mail account, by means of the available forms or directly with the OHS technicians at each plant.

The existing Health and Safety agreements are those included in the different applicable collective bargaining agreements.

Likewise, Aciturri encourages the extension of the principles of its Occupational Health and Safety Policy to subcontractors and the supply chain, as stated in the text itself, providing its support and knowledge in preventive and environmental management, in those operations derived from its relationship with Aciturri.

The DELTA system is used to report accidents to the labor authorities.

The most significant data relating to occupational risk prevention are presented below. They have been calculated considering average workforce25.

"The entire staff receives training, according to their occupation, in workplace risk prevention, beyond that established in Article 19 of the Occupational Risk Prevention Law."

Days lost due to occupational accidents (OA) and professional illness (PI) with medical leave. 30


30. Calculated based on workdays lost by occupational accidents and illness, both with medical leave and relapses after an accident. Accidents that occurred in this or other years as of January 31.

As part of its preventive activities, Aciturri's Prevention Service periodically carries out risk assessments. The most recent ones identify two hygienic risks and one significant ergonomic risk, in terms of occupational disease.

As in the past, the main hygiene risks are linked to the use of carcinogenic strontium chromate compounds and exposure to noise. To prevent them, exhaustive technical and labor controls and monitoring of working conditions are carried out, with zero tolerance for deviations.

Ergonomic risk, derived from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), is linked to both postural risk and repetitive motion. In 2022, the "Zero Injury" project continued, extending it to the Miranda de Ebro and Berantevilla plants, and to office personnel.

With regard to actions related to Covid19, in accordance with the directives of the health authorities, during the first four months of 2022, the measures implemented were relaxed, and the use of masks inside the company's facilities is no longer mandatory. In any case, masks continue to be provided to personnel who prefer to maintain their use.

"During the first quarter of 2022, the implemented measures were relaxed, with the use of face masks inside the company's facilities no longer being mandatory."
