· The HEALTH HAZARD's PREVENTION rule 31/1995 is the framework. A great deal of Royal Decrees has been issued, developing it in specific aspects:

HEALTH HAZARD'S PREVENTION

Several facilities must be legalized according to specific decrees:

........- Electricity LT and MT..............................- Gas..................................--...............- Pressure devices and vessels--------------.----- Chemical products storage--------------.- ATEX, Equipments and facilities...- Fire protection------------------------------------------- Lifts and elevators ......................-...........- Machinery (RD1215/1997; 1435/1992 i 1644/2008)---------------------------------------.- Crude oil derived products storage--..- Cold facilities ..................-.............- Thermal installations in buildings...

Often some extensions or modifications are made on the buildings, machinery or facilities. The legal status is also modified and maybe the decrees are no longer obeyed. This exposes the business administrators to civil and penal responsibilities. GRUPDI's professionals reveal the risks taken by the company's employees, studying the facilities' conditions and recommending the actions to be undertaken to decrease health hazards and legalize the facilities.

HYGIENE

The work environment may reach harmful conditions for the employees' health. The pollution level must be measured and compared with the legal threshold values. The main pollutants or hazards may be :

.........- Noise and vibrations .........................- Chemical pollutants in the air ..........- Extremely high or low temperatures--------.- Radiation-------------------------------------.- Biological pollutants.

GRUPDI professionals carry out all these measurements and compare the results with the legal limits, indicating the proper solution for its performance. If any specific facility is needed, the corresponding project may be performed.

ERGONOMICS

The working system introduced, mainly when manual handling is involved, may come into contradiction with the legal limits established. Problems appear in shape o lumbodorsal's disorders or injuries in joints, tendons and ligaments. The causes may be: Repetitive Motion Injuries, forced postures and efforts. Often some labor disputes with the workers' representatives are involved.

GRUPDI's professionals carry out the study to improve the working environment conditions in order to reduce these injuries, proposing changes in the working system or the use of specific handling devices for each task.
