We are a strategic resource for the country, therefore, the protection of all our most valuable assets, whether they are human, know-how, real estate, IT, is of crucial importance to our employees, shareholders, and of  course Italy.

With this in mind, we are committed to develop, incorporate and disseminate, within the Company,  the best practices, standards and guidelines to identify, manage and mitigate our security risks in compliance of human rights, with the belief that effective prevention and protection strategies are an ethical as well as an economic value in management and business activities.

From this point of view, we ensure a constant process of incident and risk security management, aimed at guaranteeing the highest level of protection for employees and  tangible and intangible assets in order to achieve our social and business development objectives.

With this analysis process and continuous improvement we enhance the level of overall security, for which we seek a correct and conscious adherence of all employees, considering it an essential factor of success.


To respond to COVID-19 epidemiological emergency, in terms of security, as early as the end of January we arranged the repatriation of our expats from the Chinese territory. Once back in Italy they have been placed in a self-quarantine of 15 days in their own residence before returning to their work places.

To counter the spread of the COVID-19 to our employees we have set up a control room called CMT (Crisis Management Team), in Fincantieri’s Headquarter. The CMT were meeting on regular basis and it has been empowered to monitor the development of the situation and related issues associated to the COVID-19. 

In compliance with the indication received by the Italian and regional competent authorities the CMT was responsible to implement the operational measures to protect the health and safety of the employees.


To this end, in accordance with the local health authorities, an emergency response plan (ERP) have been developed to establish a coordinate response in the event a case of COVID-19 involving site personnel (Fincantieri or companies employees) was going to be reported. The ERP included the following indications:


  • the identification of the people that have been in contact with the affected employee;
  • the identification and segregation of the areas used by the affected person, until sanitation of the area has been completed;
  • the interdiction/segregation of the common areas (e.g. changing rooms, canteen, elevators, etc.) used by the person, until sanitization has been completed;
  • the suspension of all work travels, except the ones that are deemed mandatory and authorised by the Employer (Datore di Lavoro).
