During 2018, some safety innovation projects continued, and other new projects were launched to improve processes, starting from personnel training and going on to the adoption of prevention and protection measures, up to the implementation and analysis of corrective controls.
A portable device was designed and developed to identify voltage at operating distances on low- and medium- voltage lines, preventing operator contact with live parts.
A global initiative was launched to reduce road accidents of drivers during working hours and of all Company people who travel to work by car or motorcycle. The project includes dedicated apps for smartphones, driving simulators, special conditions for purchasing protective equipment and special insurance rates if a black box is installed.
