Risks from causing damage

Liability arising from causing damage to third parties during service provision

  • Damage to third parties because of the poor state of the highway in Toll Roads activity: Liabilities arising from road accidents and incidents caused by a poor state of highway maintenance.

    The quality system implemented performs continuous monitoring of the level of highway servicing, which allows the appropriate preventive measures to be carried out.

    In addition, the Corporate Insurance Department maintains a Public Liability programme with covers and compensation limits that are in line with the assessment of this risk.

  • Incidents or accidents involving aircraft at airports managed by Ferrovial.

  • Incidents that may affect the safety of airport users, including those arising from terrorist threat.

    The British airports subsidiary (BAA) performs systematic follow-up of compliance with all airport safety rules published by the CAA (British authority) and the ICAO (international body). In addition, the airports managed by Ferrovial have introduced the best practices from the MATRA (Multi-Agency Threat and Risk Assessment) process, which is a mechanism protected by public institutions (TRANSEC programme), based on collaboration and the exchange of information between different agencies (government departments, local authorities, emergency services, the police, etc.).

    BAA has also introduced management systems at corporate and business levels that include audit processes through which technical follow-up of the degree of compliance with these matters is performed.

    Lastly, the Corporate Insurance Department maintains Public Liability and Damage programmes that include cases of terrorist threat, with covers and compensation limits that are in line with the assessment of this risk.
