Major Accident Prevention

FLEXPUR's main concern is to ensure the best safety conditions for its employees and minimize the risks for the community, the surrounding environment, as well as the preservation of its facilities and equipment.
As a complement of these guidelines and in the scope of its serious accidents prevention policy, FLEXPUR commits to the following:

1.  Comply with all regulations and ISOPA guidelines as an effective means of major accident prevention.

2.  Ensure a continuous and sustained improvement of working conditions, prevention and control of occupational risks, major accident hazards and employee health surveillance, ensuring full compliance with all legislation in force and other subscribed requirements, in matters of Safety, Health, Environment and Prevention of Major Accidents involving Hazardous Substances, including ISOPA recommendations.

3.  Identify, assess, monitor and control all sources of risk involving hazardous substances, in its activity and new projects, under normal operating conditions and modifications susceptible of affecting its control.

4.  Make available the human, financial and equipment resources required to comply with the integrated management system for the prevention of major accidents (IMSMAG) appropriate to the hazards identified, defining roles, responsibilities, competencies and promoting information and/or training for internal employees, suppliers, service providers and other stakeholders.

5.  Implement maintenance and operation procedures that ensure the safe operation of equipment, installations and processes relevant to the prevention of major accidents involving dangerous substances.

6.  Ensuring the continuous improvement of the performance of all prevention systems, namely the SGIPAG, through the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of compliance with them.

7.  Establishing emergency planning and management through the operability of the internal emergency plan in accordance with and applying it to real risk situations, as well as its articulation with the external emergency plan.

8.  Periodically reviewing the IMSMAG, taking into consideration the contributions of employees and other stakeholders, the system's performance results and the experience acquired, ensuring that they are current, functional and effective. 

It is based on these assumptions that we ensure compliance with Directive 150/2015 (Seveso Directive), which establishes the obligations to be met by the operators of establishments in order to prevent hazards and limit the consequences of major accidents involving hazardous substances.

The Management leads and guarantees its commitment to the objectives and requirements of the Management System and, in this regard, provides all the human, technical and economic means necessary to achieve them.
