Health and Well-Being


Promoting and protecting the health of Navantia staff and their environment, by raising awareness of the benefits of good health and leading a healthy lifestyle.


Zero accidents

Improve the health and well-being of our employees

In 2020, we committed to obtaining ISO 45001 certification for our Occupational Risk Prevention System (ORP)

Achieve “Healthy Organisation Certification”


The safety, health and well-being of the company’s employees and ensuring they perform their duties in a safe environment, are strategically important areas for Navantia. The company systematically assesses and identifies environmental and safety risk-factors, establishing preventive measures intended to achieve the “zero accidents” objective.

Navantia has its own Risk Prevention Service, including a Basic Healthcare Unit at each production centre.

Every member of staff is required to take responsibility for risk-prevention, whether they work directly for us or belong to an auxiliary industry . In order to foster knowledge and strengthen safety policies, all staff receive the information and training required to perform the functions applicable to their job role appropriately.

Navantia is currently OHSAS 18001:2007 certified at all its production centres; Bay of Cádiz, Ferrol Estuary and the Cartagena Shipyard. Over the course of 2019, management procedures were progressively adapted in order to achieve the new ISO 45001:2018, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems certification in 2020.

The drive to improve safety over recent years has seen Navantia considerably reduce its accident figures over a period of time. In 2019, the company signed up to the Luxembourg Declaration, a consensus document prepared by the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP), which sets out basic principles and the framework for good proper employee health management.

This sees Navantia undertake to follow the basic principles of promoting health at work in managing the well-being of its workforce, as well as continuing to comply with its occupational risk prevention obligations.
