UOCRA - NATIONAL PROGRAMME ON MANAGEMENT AND WORKING CONDITIONS SURVEY (SHW)

UOCRA CAPITAL, MORE PREVENTION ACTIONS

  • UOCRA - NATIONAL PROGRAMME ON MANAGEMENT AND WORKING CONDITIONS SURVEY (SHW)

WE CONTINUE WITH THE SURVEY ACTIONS ON MANAGEMENT AND WORKING CONDITIONS IN THE WORKS OF "EL PASEO DEL BAJO", IN THE CITY OF BUENOS AIRES.

We continue with the activities of UOCRA National Programme on management and working conditions survey. UOCRA, through the Department of Health and Safety at Work and together with UOCRA Capital, carried out different work fronts of the "Paseo del Bajo" in the City of Buenos Aires.  

We recall that the "Paseo del Bajo"will be a roadway corridor with more than 7 km. which will link  Illia highway with Buenos Aires- La Plata Highway. It will be located between the avenues:  Alicia Moreau de Justo and Huergo-Madero, and it will have an exclusive lane for trucks and long-distance buses allowing a faster circulation to the direct accesses to the port and to the Retiro Terminal. 

The light traffic will circulate down the avenues Alicia Moreau de Justo (with four traffic lanes, north direction) and Huergo (with four traffic lanes, south direction). Also, transversal crossroads will be installed which will facilitate the circulation between Microcentro and Puerto Madero through the streets: Estados Unidos- Independencia, Belgrano- Moreno, Perón-Corrientes- Lavalle and Córdoba- Viamonte.

In this work phase, the tasks are being finished taking apart the existing facilities (railways and other facilities), and concrete-related and excavation tasks are also being carried out.

The goal of our actions is to keep track of working conditions and environment for early detection of any breach and further adjustment, in the framework of Decree 911 and other standards; and on the other hand, census of workers for the purposes of observing compliance with Act 22,250. The tasks were carried out together with union teams from UOCRA Capital and UOCRA technical teams belonging to the Department of Health and Safety at Work (SHW).
