Health and safety

Start of main content

Bankia promotes a work environment that ensures the safety and health of its employees by applying a consistent and coordinated policy for the prevention of occupational risks.

The efforts made in recent years to execute the plan to update the Occupational Risk Assessment of all the work centres in the branch network and integrate it into the computerised occupational risk prevention management tool were completed in 2017.

Notable projects and activities carried out to improve occupational health communication have included: the Empresa Saludable section of the Somos Bankia in-house magazine; the updating of the website in the corporate intranet and the AHA! programme, which provides information on healthy eating, lifestyle and exercise.

During the year, Bankia also took part in various healthy company conferences, furthering its goal of integrating psychosocial improvement actions into its People strategy.


Rate of absenteeism 3.24%
Rate of occupational accidents 0.17%
Ordinary sick leaves* 4,852

*This is the number of sick leaves, not the number of people who took sick leave. The same person may take various sick leaves in any one year.
