Occupational Health and Safety

We always put safety first—for our people, contractors and communities. That’s why our work to identify and assess occupational safety risks is never done.

Our businesses invest in programs and actions to ensure our people’s health and safety, which are specifically tailored to the realities of each location. The benefits we provide our people, services we deliver and policies we put in place are continuously reviewed by organizational environment and market surveys to guarantee the company is aligned with the local practices and also in compliance with all legal aspects.

Ensuring contractor safety is no different. Each of our businesses has established contractor safety protocols that verify contractor qualifications and outline required training for all contractors before beginning work. This includes site- and task-specific safety training that must be completed prior to the commencement of the contract.


我们的安全管理系统(SMS)是建立在OHSAS 18001职业健康安全管理体系模型。短信涵盖了领导,结构等方面的功能元素,进程和行动。它提供了我们在安全管理方面的预期一致的框架。截至2014年我们经营业务的约60%已正式认证的SMS的对OHSAS 18001国际标准。

Our SMS requires each business to:

  • 建立和维持识别和减少健康和安全风险的程序;
  • 有管理的职业健康全球一致的方法;
  • Implement our policy of conducting all business in a responsible manner, free from controllable hazards; to respect the health and safety of all AES people, contractors, customers, suppliers and community neighbors of AES business; and to comply with all applicable health and safety laws and regulations of countries where our businesses operate; and

Safety Performance Reporting

我们相信,所有的职业事故都是可以预防的,这就是为什么我们已经制定了有针对性的进行主动的安全做法的若干项目。我们的安全事故报告基本上基于美国OSHA报告要求(29 CFR 1904),和轨道不断的主动和被动安全性指标。

Some of the proactive safety metrics include safety walk performance, identification of unsafe behaviors and conditions, near miss incidents, and progress on safety action plans. These metrics aim to prevent the occurrence of incidents and injuries.

Reactive metrics are considered opportunities for improvement and include first aid incidents, OSHA recordable incidents, Lost Time Incidents (LTIs) and work-related fatal incidents.
