The implementation of the "Sicuramente" project means the creation of a "methodological and organized container" of all the usual daily activities performed in view of accidents and occupational diseases prevention , through strong ‘focus’ on the cultural aspects of people. In fact, the analysis of accidents over the years revealed that their occurrence is mainly due to incorrect behavior.
This is an ambitious project entailing various training and operational stages , as well as the progressive involvement of all workers in the production units. The initial step was focused on the acquisition and development of information systems aimed at supporting accident management. The current operational step includes observation in the field and motivation actions , which have already produced significant results in terms of reduction in injury severity and frequency indexes.
Among the various actions that have been put in place so far, a specific computerized sharing system is gaining increasing importance and utility , as it is able to relate all the information concerning injuries , near misses and accidents. For this purpose , the Safety Central Department has been publishing a bimonthly accident report on the company intranet related to each production unit. In addition to ensuring data transparency, this type of information is also aimed at encouraging a productive comparison between the various production units , which will result in the reduction of injuries thanks to the identification and implementation of suitable prevention and protection measures .
All the operators in charge of managing emergencies in the production units as well as in the headquarters, receive specific theoretical-practical updates throughout the year , in order for them to intervene promptly in case of need.
As far as controls are concerned, Colacem has always followed a corporate policy based on transparency and collaboration with all the parties involved. Transparency with the supervisory bodies – in the regular registration, notification and communication of accidents to INAIL and the Municipality's Public Safety Office-; collaboration and involvement of all workers and union representatives in the identification of any health and safety issues and their possible solutions.
