SAFETY, HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Urbicsa looks after the health and safety of its workers, contractors, clients and users through different actions, protocols and programmes. Some of the most significant of these can be seen below.
Access Protocol Building D - Guide of good practices against Covid-19
Urbicsa provides this Guide of good practices at work to prevent the spread of Covid-19. This is intended to be an effective tool to prevent the spread of the virus in the City of Justice.
Some of these exceptional measures will be applied in relation to access to buildings which will be mandatory.
This guide is updated according to the measures proposed by the health authority.
Signing of the Collaboration Agreement with the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation
Urbicsa has signed a collaboration agreement with the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation to carry out the study “European Platform to Promote Wellbeing and Health in the workplace – EMPOWER”, to design and evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of an e-health platform to promote wellbeing and prevent mental health problems in the workplace. This study is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, with the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation (FSJD) as the promoter and executor of the project.
Urbicsa has carried out a survey/study of the working environment among all its workers in order to find out the degree of satisfaction and motivation of all the staff, and thus be able to apply policies for improvement in those areas where it is considered necessary. The results of the work environment survey have been very satisfactory.
In terms of data security, Urbicsa has a Committee that ensures regulatory compliance to the fullest extent, to ensure maximum protection of all personal data, as well as to ensure that all individual rights with respect to these can be exercised.
As a guarantee of all this, Urbicsa has adhered to the Digital Pact for the Protection of Individuals, of the Spanish Data Protection Agency.
In order to defend electronic systems from malicious attacks and thus ensure the protection of all information generated and processed through them, regular audits of the systems are carried out to ensure their reliability.
Urbicsa complies with the protocols of Espais Cardioprotegits Catalunya within the Ciutat de la Justicia.
For this, training and recycling courses have been carried out in basic life support and use of the DESA/DEA.
Hiring Recycling Waste Containers for Building D
Another step towards sustainability taken by Urbicsa is the hiring of recycling waste containers to carry out proper waste recycling in the building, which includes premises and offices under its management.
Development of Good Practices Guide for Suppliers
As part of the program to develop good practices guides being carried out by Urbicsa, the creation of the Good Practices Guide for Suppliers is scheduled for the year 2023. The purpose of this guide is to provide a set of standards and norms that suppliers must follow in accordance with Urbicsa’s Code of Ethics.
New Cybersecurity Audit
As done every year, an external company will conduct a new audit of the electronic systems to propose and implement improvements, in order to guarantee the protection of all generated and processed information.
Courses for Proper Defibrillator Use
Having basic life support equipment is not enough; it is necessary for the building users to know how to use it. To this end, Urbicsa will organize new courses so that more users are capable of using them.
