The 28th of April is World Day for Safety and Health at Work, values that Burgo Group deems strategic in its agenda.
The HSE administration at all Burgo Group sites is founded on management systems that are implemented according to international reference standards and based on sharing safety culture, at all company levels. Its main goal is the prevention of accidents, injuries, and occupational diseases.
The Group's HSE management system
For Burgo Group, defining how to manage health and safety means building systems and processes, while ensuring integration and alignment with the vision, the HSE policy, and the company's goals.
Burgo Group's HSE management system has been implemented according to international reference standards. Since 2015, all system norms have been based on a structure called "High Level Structure", which primary purpose is to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, undergo continuous updates, and improve over time the standards and results of the company.
To ensure safety and health in the workplace, Burgo Group has adopted the ISO 45001 standard, which has already been certified in several sites and is currently in the process of being extended to the entire Group.
GO Safety: prevention of occupational accidents and diseases
In April 2021, a program called GO Safety was launched at the Burgo Group sites. The program involves the implementation of interactive safety visits, focused on detecting unsafe activities and conducts, therefore taking action to correct them.
Such monitoring is the base to create and develop a culture of prevention within the Group, thus aiming to ensure that all activities are carried out without accidents.
The program allows the activation of an effective observation and feedback process through behavioural checklists, that are run by co-workers on co-workers. The process provides a sort of training in seeing the risks of workers and being involved with colleagues. Another central aspect is positive reinforcement: the recognition of appropriate behaviours forges good habits and promotes the diffusion of safe conduct on the workplace.
