Specifically, there will be 18 DTP, all qualified technicians in occupational risk prevention, who will visit the companies.
The program, in detail
Participating companies will receive two visits to diagnose their needs in terms of risk prevention: one from a DTP from the CEN and another from a DTP union. Both will carry out jointly, fruit of the consensus between the two parties, an improvement report and will meet with management and workers to propose various actions that will be guided by the DTP of the CEN.
Subsequently, a summary document will be published, where all the work that has been done in this respect will be addressed with each of the participating SMEs.

A pioneer figure in Spain
In the signing of the revision of the Intersectorial Agreement of Navarra on Labor Relations, of October of last year, CEN, UGT and CCOO committed themselves to relaunch this figure of the Territorial Delegate for Prevention that, years ago, already it was a pioneer in Spain because of its management fruit of the consensus between business organizations and unions and for the good results it has brought in reducing labor accident rates.
The three signatory organizations highlighted in this agreement how the accident rate had increased in recent years in Navarre and committed to work and develop the necessary actions to combat it until the maximum possible eradication of work accidents and the implementation of measures to prevent diseases of work origin.
In this agreement, CEN, UGT and CCOO proposed measures to introduce improvements in the companies in matters of occupational health, such as transferring to companies the need to protocolize intervention programs against work stress and all aspects related to conflicts and risks psychosocial In companies with fewer than fifty workers, the three organizations also recommend holding regular meetings on risk prevention between the prevention delegate and the company management.
