For our employees

Most of the Group companies have implemented certified health and safety management systems. Moreover, with a view to constantly enhancing the operational management of occupational safety, we have put in place additional tools, including the Group Guidelines on Safety and the HSE (Heath, Safety, Environmental) dashboard to measure and monitor the performance data on which improvement interventions are based.

Our rigorous management of health and safety issues enabled us to quickly respond to the Covid-19 health emergency, by putting in place specific procedures to safeguard the health and safety of our employees and external collaborators. We in fact obtained Biosafety Trust Certification, an innovative certification scheme for the prevention and control of the spread of infections. We also defined the company policy for thwarting the spread of the virus and set up the Committee for the prevention and management of Coronavirus and other infections.

Acea Vaccination hub

In May 2021 Acea, in collaboration with the Lazio Region Covid Crisis Unit and ASL Roma 1, became the first Italian multiutility to activate a vaccination hub at one of its company locations, accessible to the local community and citizens, offering a tangible contribution to the Italian and regional vaccination campaign.

Acea’s Occupational Safety Unit was directly involved in the design and start-up of the structure, identifying the company premises, planning and carrying out the actions necessary for the creation of the Vaccination Hub.

The vaccination centre has 26 pre-vaccination clinical assessment stations, 15 vaccination stations and over 60 seats in the post-vaccination observation area, as well as doctors and nursing staff, available thanks to the arrangements made with the Paideia Clinic.
