National Agreement against gender-based violence 

SEPI has joined the National Agreement against Gender-based Violence through a collaboration agreement signed in 2018 with the Ministry of Health for raising the awareness on this issue. Later this agreement has been joined by all the Group’s companies, including its affiliates and subsidiaries.

Through this agreement both parties commit themselves to collaborating in the promotion and development of awareness-raising measures against gender-based violence, especially at the workplace.

For its part, SEPI commits itself to making known within its Group all the initiatives promoted by the Government against gender-based violence.

SEPI’s home office has been accredited as a 'Cardiac Protected Area'.

The Sociedad Española de Medicina y Seguridad en el trabajo (SEMST) requires that, in order to achieve this certificate, several preventive categories must be controlled, and meeting the following requirements:

  • To have at least a Semiautomatic External Defibrillator (DESA) (currently SEPI has two units).
  • The DESA must be correctly identified, easily accessible, and located within an approved display cabinet.
  • The persons who belong to the first-aid team, as well as the security guards, have been trained in their use.
  • To guarantee the maintenance of parts and batteries, as well as to control the expiration dates through a collaboration agreement.

SEPI concluded this collaboration agreement with the company Anek S3 through the Proyecto Salvavidas, a social initiative which seeks to raise the awareness of those who have no medical training about the importance of leading a healthier life, of learning about resuscitation and first-aid techniques, as well as for introducing semiautomatic defibrillators on a larger scale.

The Proyecto Salvavidas makes use of very direct images and systems with the goal of turning prevention and cardiac protection into everyday issues, which are easy to learn and applied.
