Traffic Safety Management System: SGSC

Civil protection and emergency management

Safety, understood as a comprehensive management of all the processes that make safe transport possible, includes, among others, risk management, contingency resolution, emergency management and return to normality.

Prevention, as well as the detection or materialization of a certain risk, makes it necessary to coordinate with the emergency intervention services of the different Public Administrations

For this, while it is updated and improved, theEmergency Action Master Plan (PDAE)is implemented, with which it is intended to provide a comprehensive response to any emergency that affects Adif and / or Adif-Alta Velocidad, regardless of whether or not it affects rail traffic.

Adi's preventive policy

Among the main projects that we develop in the field of Comprehensive Security is Adif's Preventive Policy.

Consistent with the Corporate Responsibility Statement, respectful of the comprehensive safety of the railway system and the Environment, we extend these principles to the external sphere and to relations with its stakeholders.

Principles of the occupational risk prevention policies



The management of Information Security in the Entity is articulated through the development and implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) whose scope is the protection of information systems and communications networks that support the activities and business processes of Adif, and to comply with legal obligations.

The ISMS allows for managing and controlling the Information Security in Adif to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information based on the application of a risk management process, and to be able to manage the necessary security requirements, according to the criticality of the information, the different activities and processes.

Environmental safety

Environmental safety is based on two lines of action:
  • Legal compliance assurance
  • Increased eco-efficiency
Adif and Adif Alta Velocidad have established an Environmental Policy that develops the Vision, Mission and Values of the company and constitutes the highest level document in terms of environmental commitment.
