Due to the diversity of the working areas, the company prepares a tactical planning for each work, defining critical items to be controlled. There is still the commitment to the Work Safety objectives, part of its quality plan.

The management of the safety system is based on rigid controls, according to the requirement of the PPRA, PCMAT and PCMSO legal programs in all the planning development phases, control and continuous evaluation of the execution of the projects.
