At December 31, 2016, our Group’s total resources amounted to 2,850 units (2,866 if we also consider leased staff), decreased by 37 units compared to the end of 2015 (-1.3%).
Female employment impact
29% female presence, concentrated in white-collar category characterized by front end jobs, is distributed as follows: 3.6% executives, 23.4% white-collar, 1.8% blue-collar. The overwhelming presence of men in blue-collar category is motivated by the specific rules on airport operations, which penalizes the female working population compared to male workers.
Health and Safety
SEA Group’s corporate policy for protection of occupational health and safety of its employees and third parties (operators, users, passengers) present in the workplace for various reasons is based on several principles:
- compliance with national and EU legislation on occupational health and safety, including technical regulations and international standards;
- carrying out prevention activities in field of occupational health and safety management, focusing on proactive and predictive capabilities for corporate risks, in order to avoid accidents at work and the onset of occupational diseases;
- identifying residual risks in workplaces, setting up the most appropriate measures for their reduction, also by continuously updating information methods and media aimed at their assessment and analysis;
- enhancing human resources through the development of specific skills and training activities, key elements characterizing all the choices of the SEA Group, with the aim of making workers aware of their responsibilities and the need to comply with current legislation and internal regulations;
- informing all those present (employees, contractors, suppliers, customers) about the organisation for safety and emergency management, as well as existing risks and adopted prevention and protection standards;
- selecting suppliers while also taking into consideration aspects related to occupational health and safety and promotion of coordination activities for manag¬ing and resolving possible risk situations with a view to mutual cooperation;
- promoting involvement of employees on corporate targets for occupational health and safety, including through their Safety Representatives;
- promoting integration of the principles of occupational health and safety into the management of all the corporate activities, including design and mainte¬nance of buildings and systems;
- promoting initiatives for the dissemination of a culture of occupational health and safety and interaction between corporate structures for a collaboration aimed at achieving company efficiency also in terms of safety.
Analysis of accidents in 2016 shows that:
- accidents in transit account for 32% of all accidents;
- of the remaining accidents (so-called occupational), over 40% are due to walking dynamics (slipping, stumbling, uncoordinated footstep) and are therefore largely or entirely unrelated to typical professional risks.
