Health
and safety

Alestis Aerospace counts with an Occupational Health and Safety Policy, approved by the General Management, whose purpose is to eliminate or reduce any risk related to the health and safety of the staff and all the people related to our activity or products, with a focus on continuous improvement.

This policy defines the company's commitments in terms of health and safety, setting the life and health of people and the quality of the environment as one of the 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 person").

This policy is implemented in the organization, at all levels and activities, thanks to the Integrated Management System on Safety, Health and Environment, based on the ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 standards, implemented in the company.

The policy is made public internally and externally via the website.

Alestis Aerospace has an Occupational Health and Safety Policy, approved by the General Management, which aims to eliminate or reduce any risk related to the health and safety of the staff and all persons related to our activity or products, with a focus on continuous improvement.

Since 2021, the company has joined the Aciturri/Alestis Joint Prevention Service, which covers the three technical specialities (safety, hygiene and ergonomics), and has contracted health surveillance with Quirón Prevención, with whom it coordinates the protocols to be applied according to the risks identified for each position. In addition, the Puerto Real and Seville plants have on-site nursing care services.

The accident rate indicator management follows that established by the National Institute for Health and Safety in the Workplace (INSST). Both frequency and severity rates are analysed.

66. A substantial increase compared to previous years can be identified. However, the figure for 2022 corresponds to only three accidents (two ankle dislocations and one crushed finger in the press). The relevant investigations were carried out, the result of which was the classification of unsafe acts, i.e. caused by the worker's lack of attention, ruling out any unsafe condition on the part of Alestis do Brasil. In order to reduce this type of situation, the company's action has consisted of analysing these events at the meetings of the Internal Commission for Accident Prevention (CIPA) and addressing prevention and warning measures at the Weekly Safety Dialogues (DSS).
67. Half a day's loss is counted for each accident without sick leave.

For the participation of Alestis employees in occupational risk prevention, the company relies on Health and Safety Committees that cover all facilities, except for Getafe engineering and Getafe services unit, where there is no employee representation, which represents 92.92% of the workforce. In the work centres of the Central Offices, Vitoria-Gasteiz and El Puerto de Santa Maria, these health and safety committees have been extended, with the agreement of the social partners, to Safety, Health and Environment committees, thus extending the participation of all employees not only in the preventive system, but also in the environmental system. These committees meet periodically, as required, and at least quarterly, as defined in the regulations.

In Brazil, there is an Internal Accident Prevention Commission (CIPA), with the participation of trade union representatives. Trade union representation also participates in the Occupational Risk Prevention Management System.

Throughout 2022, Alestis has maintained the Covid-19 action protocols recommended by the health authorities. In this context, when the health authorities indicated the end of the mandatory use of masks indoors, the company recommended the use of masks in enclosed spaces or when a person showed symptoms, guaranteeing the supply of masks if required.

Alestis proactively works on health improvement and to this end continues to adhere to the Luxembourg Declaration to further promote healthy habits among its employees both inside and outside the workplace.

A medical examination is conducted annually (or for a shorter period depending on the health protocol applicable to the risk in the task identified or according to medical criteria), as part of the health surveillance contract that the company keeps up to date. The health protocols applicable to each person are determined by the doctor who carries out the health surveillance, depending on the risks to which the worker is exposed.

Alestis acts proactively to improve health and therefore continues to adhere to the Luxembourg Declaration to continue promoting healthy habits among its workers both inside and outside the workplace.

Alestis do Brasil has an Occupational Risk Prevention Management System, based on the Brazilian standard of the Regulatory Norms of the Ministry of Labour. All departments receive assistance and are 100% covered by the Environmental Risk Prevention Programme, with respect to the risks of chemical, physical, biological and ergonomic contamination, provided for by NR 9 PGR (Risk Management Programme), in compliance with Ordinance 33.214 of 1978.

Annually, the company organises the SIPAT Internal Week for the Prevention of Accidents at Work, an event that includes lectures and various awareness-raising activities for the prevention of accidents at work and diseases such as cancer, HIV, STDs, etc., for a whole week.

The entire workforce can make use of the collective health system, although it also has a private company agreement.

Since 2021, the company has joined the Aciturri/Alestis Joint Prevention Service, which covers the three technical specialities (safety, hygiene and ergonomics).
