The company’s Almussafes plant leads the internal ranking, followed by the Vigo plant, which has already accumulated 2,645 days without mishaps

DS Smith Tecnicarton has managed to go from 3000 days without accidents at work in its plant in Almussafes, followed by the plant that the company has in Vigo and that already reaches 2,645 days. These figures represent more than 8 and 7 years respectively without mishaps.

These figures are the result of the company’s policy for the safety and health of its employees, which has been reinforced with the integration of Tecnicarton into the discipline of the multinational DS Smith. According to the person in charge of this area, Pablo Escuín, "since the integration in DS Smith both investments in prevention and the personnel assigned to it have been reinforced. And a lot of effort has been put into internal training for all employees in all plants".

The commitment to training in prevention is materialised through small meetings that are held periodically and constantly where specific and specific prevention issues are explained. Preventive indicators are shown in these meetings. And, as Pablo Escuín confirms, "all incidents that occur are investigated, even if they do not cause harm to the worker".

In this sense, the data of lack of accidents in the plants of DS Smith Tecnicarton are also positive. The company’s plant in Vigo, from which industrial packaging is supplied to PSA, already exceeds 2,650 days without accidents. And the plants in Seville and Bilbao exceed 1100 days.
