Health and Safety
Health and Safety
Bovis has Respect as one of its corporate values. Respect for others, for their ideas, their culture, their opinions and their knowledge. Respect for the environment and everybody’s Health & Safety.

As a sign of our commitment to this company value, we defend an environment in our works that we have called IIF (Incident and Injury Free) or LIDER (Libre de Incidentes y Daños en un Entorno de Responsabilidad) or if we use Spanish terminology.
To achieve this objective of a IFF environment, at Bovis we advocate that security must be integrated into all our Project Management activities, as one more objective of the same as the highest priority, providing with our management the maximum possible value in this area.
Bovis has developed, through our many years of experience in Project Management, the Bovis Minimum Security Standards (EMS), which is a reference guide that defines the criteria to be followed in the different aspects related to health and safety in projects where Bovis participates, in order to achieve a safe or IIF environment.
There are ten Minimum Security Standards
  • EMS 1 Pre-construction
  • EMS 2 Logistics
  • EMS 3 Wellness Facilities, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Health Protection
  • EMS 4 Civil Works
  • EMS 5 Machinery and Auxiliary motorized tools
  • EMS 6 Firefighting and Emergency
  • EMS 7 Fall Prevention
  • EMS 8 Motorized lifting equipment and work at height auxiliary tools 
  • EMS 9 Electrical Safety
  • EMS 10 Environment

In 1996 we established Community Day, which aims to offer one work day per year of the Company's employees, for social work development devoted to the community in which we live and work. With this, we intend to give something back to the society from which we obtain our business benefits.

Community Day involves all our staff, from Management to the last employee, who voluntarily offer a work day, leaving their day-to-day comfort zone to carry out tasks, in some cases very hard, physical and emotionally, with the neediest in our society.

With this program, we have contributed hundreds of volunteer hours since 1996.
Additionally, this initiative improves employee morale, fosters teamwork, and develops leadership skills, all of which strengthen our business and support our community.

Other initiatives developed are:
  • Site visits for schools and employees relatives to promote good practices in Health and Safety areas.
  • Every year Bovis manage the collection of children's material and toys for different children's associations, giving employees the opportunity to collaborate by either contributing material or helping with their distribution.
  • We help employees collaborate with community organizations on projects that are geographically, personally, and professionally relevant.

  • Through the hiring of handicapped personnel, and with more favorable internal policies for this group.
