Spain aims to reduce CO2 emissions

According to the Spanish Association of operators of petroleum products (AOP) AND KMPG, in the report"Perspective for the reduction of emissions of C02 in Spain to 2030. The role of petroleum products", It shows that they can be achieved with efficient cost objectives.

The study highlights the importance of implanting measures with the greatest potential emission reduction to the lower coast to society as a whole in order to meet the objectives of reduction of CO2 emissions in an efficient manner, without imposing additional costs to consumers. The Secretary of State for energy, Daniel Navia, his defence told the need to implement measures that take into account the maturity of the technologies available to reduce CO2 emissions. Navia considers that in 2030 they will have to be reduced, at least in a 40% las emisiones de GEI con respecto a las de 1990, las renovables deberán representar el 27% del consumo total de energía, y llegar mínimo al 27% de mejora de la eficiencia energética.

También se mencionó del papel que pueden jugar tecnologías maduras, el secretario de Estado de Energía comentó que lo mejor es “esperar al momento óptimo para incorporar tecnologías en función de su desarrollo”. Navia considered to carry out a gradual transition to new energies "leaning on the domestic industry" so that Spain is not "a mere user of foreign technologies".

The study reflects that internal combustion of gasoline and diesel engines, as well as hybrids, "the relative cost of a significant reduction in CO2 emissions is lower than other alternative technologies". In addition mentions that the electric vehicle "you can play its role in the" reduction of CO2 emissions at the end of the Decade of 2020 without subsidy"". Advierte la AOP que el estudio demuestra la existencia de alternativas que permitirán alcanzar los objetivos de manera más eficiente con un coste menor para la sociedad.




Training in prevention is cheaper that failure to do so

"The costs direct and indirect who have occupational accidents are equivalent to the 3% of the internal gross product of Spain, that in 2017 added 1,16 billion euro". Not to mention the incalculable cost in human lives.

Training in occupational risk prevention is fundamental for a company. It is to transmit knowledge, equip with skills and attitudes that enable a person to reproduce a desired behavior, and integrate those elements enabling it to analyse a situation and react properly to certain circumstances.

Invest in this type of training is cheaper than doing it. Among other things because, an industrial accident avoided is, input, Remove personal and economic losses both to the company and society. ES, In addition to the companies obligation, one of the rights of the worker.

According to the article 19 of the law of prevention of occupational risks, the employer shall ensure that each worker receives a theoretical and practical training, sufficient and appropriate, in prevention, both at the time of their recruitment, matter what mode or duration of the, When changes in the functions that perform or new technologies or changes be introduced in work teams. Training must be provided, whenever possible, within the working day o, failing, en otras horas pero con el descuento en aquélla del tiempo invertido en la misma. El coste económico no recaerá en ningún caso sobre el equipo.

Mediante una buena prevención de riesgos, la labor es más fluida ya que los trabajadores se centran, sólo y exclusivamente, en realizar su desempeño. Así, dejan a un lado los nervios por posibles peligros, ahora minimizados y, consiguiente que el rendimiento, la calidad y la rentabilidad aumenten.





Do you know what is the culture of prevention?

It is understood by Preventive culture the commitment acquired by an organization or company with the security, health and well-being of the same. The aim of this concept is the education of people, to achieve that they establish in their lives a much-needed culture with three keys:

  • Crear conciencia en la sociedad a problem that can be largely preventable.
  • Establecer nuevas medidas safe and healthy.
  • Adoptar una actitud responsable and respect for life.

To get these three much-needed points required the collective participation of the whole society as a whole.

The preventive culture in today's society.

This term and way of life has already grounded several years to our society. The culture of prevention and security It arose on the occasion of several occupational accidents serious that occurred in the past.

The number of occupational accidents remains very high, increasing in the past years. What is failing is the preventive education, It generationally been more superficial that internal. Both the management and workers, they have not internalized something that aims to become an everyday culture, but that they have only tried to pretend it.

The same happens with the idea of Preventive culture in organizations, This requires of the participation of two bodies mainly: the Address of the Organization and the people who work in it.

Explaining this concept in more detail, We differentiate two ranges: management and employees.


All persons who are in the direction of a company should be aware, encouraging this kind of culture, since they are the / leaders as who should lead by example to thus encourage its employees between a security-based culture, health and well-being. Entre sus principales “obligaciones” estarían las de incentivar y fomentar la implantación de medidas y políticas que persigan la consecución de una cultura de prevención.


Es importante que el personal esté concienciado y comprometido para conseguir una Cultura Preventiva efectiva. Las personas que trabajan en una organización tienen que interiorizar este tipo de medias, y no tomarlas como una obligación o imposición. Ideally, the staff and management to work together to achieve the objective, but not normally be. Experience tells us that the / workers require incentives by their managers/as to encourage them to carry out preventive actions.

The anti-fatigue mats prevent accidents

The use of appropriate carpets in work environments prevent the risk of accidents.


The use of suitable carpets, leaving aside the fringes and the bright colors, They help to prevent accidents. Materials which should contain these carpets are the PVC, steel elements, insulating plates, non-slip drawings, reliefs improve adhesion or ergonomic quilting. These carpets are placed covering dangerous areas or where a person is going to be long standing. They are typical, For example, in the areas of step, in the protection of presses or in damp environments.

There are many models of carpets and each of them adapts to a particular job. For example, the non-slip they are optimal to improve the extra traction thanks to their aggressive surface and their different textures; Others resist oil and prevent slips on the viscous element; welding are composed of a long duration fire retardant rubber; the drainage whose open design allows clear liquid and waste provide a safe place where stepping.

If you are looking for is avoiding unpleasant shocks and protect the teams we need to electrostatic carpet. While the non-conductive protect the worker in case of electric shock. In places with extreme temperatures, vibration or noise, the use of insulating carpets is recommended in addition to avoid these hassles, to optimize the general feeling of well-being. Other models are adjusted to the type of load that will withstand.

Speak also of the anti fatigue floor mats, They help to relieve pressure on the feet, they stimulate blood circulation and help to reduce stress on the lower part of the back, the joints of the legs and the major muscle groups. Stand on hard surfaces for a long time may cause different problems that can be easily avoided with the incorporation of such materials.

  2. Avoid the fascicits plant, among other serious pathologies of the foot.
  3. Prevent pain in the lower part of the back, induced to spend many hours standing on unsuitable surfaces.
