MDS holds elections for CIPA
In June, Metalúrgica DS elected the Internal Commission for the Prevention of Accidents (CIPA) for 2014/2015. The commission is composed of company and employee representatives, and its mission is the preservation of the health and physical integrity of workers and everyone who has dealings with the institution.
It is CIPA's job to inspect and report on hazardous conditions in the workplace and request measures to reduce, neutralize and eliminate existing hazards, as well as to report on any accidents. The results of these reports are sent to the Specialized Services in Safety Engineering and Occupational Medicine (SESMT) and to the employer, requesting measures to prevent similar accidents and, also, ensuring that other workers are trained with regard to accident prevention.
