To carry out a more efficient risk prevention system, TAFYMSA is a member of a Joint Prevention Service. Its preventive practices are applied according to the specific nature of each member company.

In compliance with the Act, TAFYMSA undergoes a biannual audit which checks its commitment to the health and safety of all employees. This commitment is constantly renewed with activities to implement the company's preventive standards:

  1. Continuous job training activities on general risks associated with the business sector, specific risks in each workplace, emergency situations and first aid.
  2. Emergency drills throughout the plant, on a regular basis, with simulation of different types of emergency responses and time controls for response and evacuation.
  3. Application of special security procedures in jobs that pose higher risks (working at heights, working in confined spaces, etc.)
  4. Appointment of Preventive Resources (2 specialist operators in the factory) whose mission is to ensure compliance with implemented health and safety standards throughout the company's production process.
  5. Adequacy of machinery and equipment not only to safety regulations, but also to our own "Ergonomic Study" requested by the Director of the company which sets out the specifications for correct postural hygiene in the workplace.
