For this, they use Safety Topics. Both agreed that senior management must talk about safety and, as a consequence, so will their teams.

They also appreciated that Industrialisation and Digitalisation are crucial in the face of the current labour shortage, because manufacturing is done in controlled environments and the accident rate is reduced.

In addition, they highlighted the value of safety in the design phase, as it anticipates the steps to be taken in the subsequent implementation phase of the projects.

Afterwards, Francisco Pérez, CEO of Culmia, took the floor to thank the attendees for their participation in the event and to talk about the ethical commitment to health and safety.
