Development of the culture of safety: communication and training

In 2016, over 820 thousand1 hours of H&S education, information and on-the-job training were provided for Enel employees, with the goal of improving knowledge and specific competences of workers throughout the Group.
From November 14 to 20, 2016 there was the eighth edition of the International Health and Safety Week, providing for all workers a moment to reflect on health and safety themes. Around 1,400 events were held in 19 different countries, involving both contractors and Enel employees, for a total of 72 thousand people. The communication and support campaign entitled “Let’s Pay Attention” aimed to reinforce the importance of the collaboration and involvement of all individuals, regardless of hierarchies and roles.

Also in 2016 the information campaign on road safety continued, focusing on the main causes of accidents. The people who work in Enel responded to a quiz in 7 languages and were invited to share their personal experiences through a dedicated section on the company intranet.
