Occupational Health and Safety

AboitizPower is committed to mitigating its occupational health and safety (OH&S) risks and eliminating hazards to provide a safe and healthy work environment for our people and partners.

AboitizPower statistics include activities of organic and contracted personnel. Contractors are covered by virtue of AboitizPower’s “prevailing influence”. “Prevailing Influence” is considered to be in place when contractor employees are required to adhere to safety rules and regulations laid down by AboitizPower or to use methods, processes or other techniques provided by the company. A reportable contractor is when AboitizPower exerts a prevailing influence with regard to safety management practices.

In 2019, 1,395 employees in the Generation group went through the 8-Hour Mandatory Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Training for Workers. As part of its ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety‎ Certification, and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Certification, the company ensures that there are programs in place for employees across all business units to have sufficient training and knowledge.
