VISESA is a public company managed by the Basque Government that reports to the Department of Employment and Social Policies
for the development of territorial housing and land management policy, in collaboration with other institutions. VISESA works on the
continuous improvement of management processes and exercises a leading role in the important work of incorporating innovation into
the building sector in the Basque Country.
In order to do so and in line with the commitment to being a socially responsible company, in 2005 VISESA decided to go beyond the
regulated functions of the developer, serving as a driving force for other companies, earmarking the means and necessary resources,
in order to have the best work and safety conditions in their housing developments, promoting awareness among all responsible agents and boosting training for workers.
The project would like to improve working and safety and health conditions in housing developments, raising awareness among agents participating in
the process in order to bring about a domino effect on other construction works developed by other public entities and/or private companies.
Current Spanish regulations in construction attribute to the developer a series of obligations with regard to safety, from a passive point
of view in safety at work, which after all do not guarantee optimum safety conditions in construction works.
VISESA supervises and supports the work on site of the coordinator through their own human resources, getting involved with the
workers through the protection of labour rights, contributing to the reduction of the accident rate in the sector, leading in this change of role of the developer in safety and labour rights.
This project is applicable by all construction developers that wish to take part in the change in preventive culture in the sector.
