During this pandemic, Ferrovial Services continues to provide services considered essential in the different countries where it operates. For this reason, the company has intensified its efforts to keep these critical services operating, including ambulance service, hospital maintenance and cleaning, street cleaning, waste collection and treatment, road maintenance and energy services, all essential for daily operation.
For this reason, the company is committed to continue offering these essential services to society, working for more than 25 million citizens and with more than 16,000 workers in Spain providing these critical services. In the United Kingdom, Amey has more than 9,900 employees performing critical services, such as road and rail maintenance. In North America, the company continues to protect all of its workers in both the highway maintenance and Oil & Gas sectors. In Portugal, the organization carries out the cleaning and disinfection of the new triage centers, as well as cleaning services in three public hospitals, totaling 1,500 beds.
“We ensure the continuity of the service we provide to our clients, knowing that what we do at Ferrovial Servicios is completely essential in our society. We must not lose sight of the fact that our priority must be to ensure the health and well-being of our families, our colleagues and society as a whole.”
Every one of us must contribute, to the best of our ability, to curb the exponential curve of infections. I am convinced that we will overcome this challenge together.
