FCC Medio Ambiente certifies its protocols against COVID-19 with AENOR

  • The award of this certificate confirms FCC Medio Ambiente's commitment to ensuring the safety of its employees in the working environment in the context of the global pandemic

  • This certificate is an important endorsement of the effectiveness of the measures being applied by the company

FCC Medio Ambiente has received the certificate of protocols against COVID-19 from AENOR for its corporate headquarters in Las Tablas (Madrid) and for the Palacio de Congresos de Granada, in a ceremony held today at the aforementioned headquarters. The ceremony was presided over by Jordi Payet, Chief Executive Officer of FCC Medio Ambiente, and Rafael García Meiro, CEO of AENOR.

The rigorous evaluation carried out by AENOR assesses aspects such as risk analysis; health management in the workplace; training, information and communications developed; organisational measures (capacity and distance control) and protection measures (use of personal protection material), the business continuity plan, as well as good cleansing and hygiene practices, among others.

This certificate demonstrates that the efforts made and measures adopted by the company to prevent and alleviate the effects of the pandemic comply with current legislation and are in line with AENOR's demanding criteria in this area. It also helps to reinforce the confidence of both customers and professionals in the appropriate management of the pandemic by FCC Medio Ambiente.

During the event, Jordi Payet emphasised that the management of people in the organisation admits no other result than excellence, and that this has been the case since its foundation, 120 years ago. The general manager thanked all the people of FCC Medio Ambiente for their great effort and personal involvement during the pandemic, and for the good reception and teamwork in achieving this certificate, which is especially important in the current circumstances.

For his part, Rafael García Meiro stated that "the way out of the economic and health crisis caused by the COVID will only be possible with everyone's commitment. But, as with every major challenge, society seeks organisations that are a reference point for their seriousness and solidity. FCC Medio Ambiente is one of them and that is why the step it has taken in certifying its protocols against the COVID is a clear and powerful message in favour of serious and continued approaches to the pandemic".

This certificate is an important endorsement of the effectiveness of the measures that the company is applying and, at the same time, it guarantees that they comply with the guidelines set by national and international organisations in terms of prevention on COVID-19.
