Integrated safety is one of the mainstays of BBG policies.
That is why Bahía de Bizkaia Gas is committed to going beyond merely complying with the regulations in place at regional, national and EU levels.
We have a set of framework policies for the strategic development of our general and specific management areas:
This integrated safety policy seeks to ensure that an essential service is provided safely for people, facilities, systems and information.
Integrated safety management is a priority consideration at our organisation, and is understood to mean the following:
- Acknowledgement by in-house personnel and other parties involved of the need to protect their health and well-being at work, in the framework of BBG’s values.
- Safeguarding of facilities, personnel and information related to their activities and surroundings.
- Provision of essential services and the meeting of needs and expectations of customer companies and individual users at all times.
Occupational risk prevention
As the operator of an LNG regas plant, Bahía de Bizkaia Gas is committed to compliance with the health and safety regulations in force.

- UNE EN ISO 9001:2015
- UNE: EN ISO 14001:2015
- OHSAS 18001: 2007
- UNE EN ISO 2001:2017
