The Fundación Laboral de la Construcción (Labour Foundation for Construction) works since 1992 to provide businesses and workers the necessary resources to promote a more professional, qualified and educated construction sector. An industry that today works more united and connected than ever, both with society and other sectors, to meet the challenges of our times. To this end, the National Construction Confederation (CNC), the National Federation of Building and Wood Workers Union, (FECOMA- CC.OO) and the National Federation of Metal and Construction Workers Union, (MCA-UGT), composed a Board to create and manage jointly this non-profit entity which is the Foundation. As a result of years of dedication and effort, and with the support of many professionals, the Foundation is today a reference in the construction sector and a key partner working with and for the future of businesses and professionals. With more experience and knowledge at our disposal, we work to ensure that occupational risk prevention, training, innovation, sustainability and new technologies help us continue to build the progress that we all believe possible. Thousands of construction workers attend each year the courses of the Foundation, which we provide every day through our 42 training centers, offering more than 400 different training courses in collaboration with more than 1,700 teachers in Spain. Moreover, we develop over 100 guides on different subjects relating to construction and best practices. To build a better world is our challenge and that of each of the people that make up the Foundation, working at every one of the 17 Councils the Foundation manages throughout Spain to be closer to you. Quality and environment The Foundation is well aware that, currently, the circumstances around us and in which we develop our activity, involve taking actions to continuously improve in terms of both the quality of products and services offered, and in terms of sustainable development of our environment. Quality is undoubtedly one of the signs of identity of the organization. Quality is what guarantees that the work carried out in the Foundation meets the expectations of businesses, students participating in courses and of other users of the services offered. As evidence of this pursuit, in May 27th of 2003, the Foundation obtained the Company Registration Certificate, and the right to use the AENOR trademark, with number ER-0755/2003 and the use of the IQNET trademark, applicable to the design and delivery of training programs, which has been continuously renewed to this day. Furthermore, the commitment to excellence of the Foundation made us begin a line of work designed to achieve total quality, based on the model of excellence of the European Foundation for Quality Management ( EFQM). The work done throughout the organization is reflected in the award of the Seal 300 +, with the number CEG/RE03/0033/11, awarded by the Club of Excellence in Management on July, 27th of 2011. Regarding its commitment to sustainable development, the Foundation has implemented an Environmental Management System, ISO 14001:2004. As a result, the Council of Galicia has achieved this certificate in environmental management for its facilities. This first experience will allow us to address the environmental certification in our other facilities. Territorial councils (intro phrase on the map and "click here") The Foundation has 17 Councils, one for each Spanish region, and, alike the national organization, each Council has a Board composed of regional members of the most representative entities of the industry: the National Construction Confederation (CNC), the National Federation of Building and Wood Workers Union, (FECOMA- CC.OO) and the National Federation of Metal and Construction Workers Union, (MCA-UGT).
