New Health and Safety measures in the renovation works of L4 of the Barcelona Metro

COMSA Corporación’s commitment to people involves guaranteeing optimum health and safety conditions by implementing the necessary preventive measures so that our employees can carry out their duties safely.

Thus, in the comprehensive track and drainage renovation works on the Barceloneta-Verdaguer section of Line 4 of the Barcelona Metro that the company is carrying out during the summer, it has implemented several initiatives to minimise the exposure of workers to silica dust particles and diesel fumes, typical elements of the railway environment.

The measures implemented include:

  • Design and implementation of an in-house ventilation strategy during construction work, including windbreaks, water mist systems and additional portable ventilation systems.
  • Continuous watering of the ballast to minimise dust generation.
  • Implementation of changing rooms with double lockers so that workers have one locker for clean clothes and another for dirty clothes.
  • Daily industrial cleaning service for work clothes and facilities.
  • Use of long-sleeved work clothes and FFP3 protective masks.

In addition, during the course of work on Line 4 of the Barcelona Metro, measurements of silica dust and diesel fumes are taken periodically at different work points and facilities.
