What makes us different?

Safety

UBSA has a Ø Accidents Program, this policy has enabled us to achieve over 26 million major accident-free man hours .

Mr. Safe Award

A very important part of our 0 Accidents Program is the Mr. Safe Award. Mr. Safe is our safety mascot and appears in all communications regarding safety on the work site.

It is already a well-positioned icon within our laborers, partners and subcontractors. At the end of every job, UBSA carries out a raffle, all personnel involved in the construccion participate. This raffle takes place only if no major accidents occur during the project.

The ceremony takes place in front of a public notary, who previously reviewed the participants tickets in presence of a representative of the worlers and UBSA security personnel.

*major accidents: loss of life or loss of limb
