What is an External Prevention Service?

External Prevention Services (SPA) are specialised companies made up of a series of human and material resources and designed to provide support to other companies to guarantee that the safety and health of their employees’ are adequately protected. They promote this safety and health with the application of the appropriate measures and the pursuit of the activities needed to prevent risks arising from work, in this way helping to reduce work accidents and professional illness amongst companies’ employees.

The SPAs are private legal entities which must be accredited by a Public Authority with jurisdiction in the field.
