Type and rates of injury, occupational diseases, lost days, and absenteeism, and total number of work-related fatalities, by region and by gender


The absenteeism rate for employees[1] covered by the collective bargaining[2] agreement in Spain was 3.56%[3] in 2016. The absenteeism rate only includes absence from workplace for reasons of a common illness, excluding any other kind of absenteeism such as maternity or paternity leave or occupational accidents.

Occupational diseases rate

The occupational diseases rate in Repsol employees was zero in 2016.

With regard to independent contractors, in most countries in which we operate it is not possible to obtain this information due to regulations on the protection of healthcare data. In 2016 two cases of occupational diseases were reported (cutaneous leishmaniasis) by exploration contractors.

Likewise, we act according to the local legislation in each country regarding the reporting of accidents and occupational diseases.


  1. The absenteeism rate for the contractors is not reported since they are not Repsol employees and this information is not available.
  2. This refers to those whose salary is governed by the tables defined in the collective bargaining agreement.
  3. Absenteeism rate: No. days lost per illness / total No. of actual hours. The total number of actual hours is calculated by subtracting vacation hours from planned hours.
