referencing System (QARS) Zone 70.
The entire site is 1365 hectares (ha) and will accommodate approximately 4000 residential properties
and associated neighborhood development. The site is currently under a process of development with
approximately 800 properties under construction. There are no existing roads within the site, although
there are existing temporary access roads and some others are currently under construction. The
project has been split into three Packages to facilitate a phased design and construction process to
expedite construction.

Change and Revision Management


Forecast Changes

This is a dynamic document that can be expected to change once approved for use. It is designed to
be updated throughout the course of the project. For larger projects information for some activities will
only be included closer to the time of the activity. Development of the design, unforeseen conditions,
further information, changing circumstances, personnel or plant, changes to the scope of work,
materials or methods, legislation or regulations may necessitate some changes to this plan.
3.1.2

Management & Revision of this Health & Safety Plan

The Safety Manager will review this Health and Safety Plan to ensure that it is up-dated to reflect
changes to the organisation, processes, scope of works and to incorporate new hazards or legislative

nominate another convenient, secure, location accessible by the site staff. The Master Copy will be
updated on a daily basis and shall contain the original copies of forms and certificates etc. all risk
assessments, method statements and other information that is generated for the project. This
additional information (risk assessments, method statements etc.) shall be copied periodically to the
others on the distribution list, by the Safety Manager. This shall be recorded in the controlled update

PREVENTION POLICY SACYR


SACYR operates in five business areas, such as: construction, services, concessions, property development and estate,
therefore there is a great variety of jobs, due to diversity of these activities.
SACYR has a main objective is to get that all the Group's activities are considered, from the time of planning and during
implementation, the necessary measures to avoid risks that could appear on the origin and development of it and, for the risks
considered unavoidable, put all the preventive and protective measures necessary to protect health and safety of our
employees and partners.
When planning a job, we not only think quickly and efficiently but also the safest way of going about it.
Security must be inherent and intrinsic to developing any job, both in its beginning and and the procedure to be developed.
Consequently, SACYR bets on INTEGRATED SAFETY and establishes a Risk Prevention Policy which main objective is to
promote the improvement of work conditions and the level of protection, safety and health of its employees.
To achieve this target, we must be aware of our duties and responsibilities and how to deal with them,always seeking a
continuous improvement in preventive action, bearing in mind that this can only be achieved through information, training and
staff participation at all levels.
Therefore, SACYR is committed to develop throughout its Organization, its Occupational Risk Prevention Policy through the
following actions:
- Placing Prevention training at all levels, as one of the main objectives, so that the Preventive Policy is known and taken on by
all.
-Keeping the Prevention Plans updated and operating in all our workplaces, in order to achieve a continuous improvement of
the Management System established.
-Analyzing risk situations and accidents that have occurred, not assuming them as part of the work but obtaining corrective
actions through their analysis. These must be known and implemented to eliminate or minimize the risk of accidents to achieve
safe work conditions.
- Achieving integration of subcontractors and suppliers in a common compromise to improve occupational safety.
- Checking both the observance of legal requirements that affect us in every activity, as well as those established to achieve the
proposed targets for each Group company.
- Keeping up to date so our Manual as our Procedures that derive from it.
The Management of SACYR understands that occupational risk prevention, in order to achieve the highest levels of safety,
must come from the company human team, so it encourages everyone to understand and integrate the previous guidelines into
his working style.

43.1 General Work Permit Arrangements


A permit-to-work system is a formal written system used to control certain types of work that are
potentially hazardous.
The following details are common to all types of permit:
Permits shall be applied for well in advance of the work required, to ensure that other activities that
may be affected can be re scheduled.
The permit to work will only be issued close to the time of the work to be carried out. This is to ensure
that all factors are considered, and reduces the likelihood of unforeseen events being overlooked.
This period is determined by the engineering judgement of the person signing the permit, and may
vary during the course of the project depending on the type of permit, and other works on site at the
time.
The Safety Manager shall sign work permits.
If individuals are nominated to sign work permits, note their names and the type of permit they can
sign.
A copy of the permit shall be kept by the team undertaking the work. The original shall be filed here
and recorded in the register.
