The Register of Accredited Companies (REA) aims to establish that companies that operate in the construction sector meet the requirements of capacity and quality of the prevention of occupational hazards. Any company that intends to be hired or subcontracted for work on a construction site, must be registered in the Register of Accredited Companies dependent on the labor authority where the registered office of the company is located. As of August 26, 2008, companies that contract or subcontract the realization of any work in a work, will have to prove that their contractor companies or subcontractors are registered in the Register, requesting for this a certificate of registration.
The Accreditation “Safety Safety Stone Certificate” CS3
CS3 is the first voluntary accreditation on safety and industrial hygiene created by a business association in Spain.
One of the biggest difficulties encountered by companies in the management of occupational risks is to have a system that allows them to know easily where they are in the degree of fulfillment of their obligations and that at the same time serve so that the workers, the labor administration and the society in general, can know also the effort that in this matter are realizing.
In order for a system to work like this, it must be foreign in its assessment to the company itself and must ensure that the parameters evaluated are the appropriate and specific for the sector in which each company encompasses.
In addition, the system must ensure that the improvements made by each company to the essential management of occupational hazards are incorporated into the system and can be viewed immediately and at the same time do not allow complacency and require attention continuous that guarantees the best conditions for the health and safety of all those involved in the production process.
Finally, this system must be an open system, which allows the incorporation of new factors and elimination of others, so that it remains valid in accordance with the reality of the productive sector in which it has been implemented.
Based on all the previous premises, the Catalan Association of the Stone, where the Catalan Association of Stonemasons is integrated with the advice of the company specialized in the prevention of occupational hazards PRIESLAB, has created the Safety Safety Stone Certificate.
The mission of the Accreditation program is:
“Provide excellence in the natural stone industry and recognize companies that demonstrate compliance with safety, health and industrial hygiene standards.”
