Occupational Risk Prevention Service Coordinator
When I joined OHL almost thirty years ago, in the summer of 1990, I never imagined that I would end up going around the world to do my job. It’s not that I wasn’t used to travel and hotels throughout much of Spain, as during the years I was responsible for the Prevention Service in Galicia and Castilla y León, it was commonplace. But I have to admit, air travel wasn’t one of my favorite activities. In fact, I remember a trip by car, in the middle of winter, to avoid the “dangerous” trip by plane. That’s why when my current boss, Francisco Javier Tarín, and our then director, Juan Lorenzo Martín, called me to join the incipient international business, I had a hard time making the decision. Intercontinental trips of several hours of flight… what a horror!

Years later, with a more than successful experience in countries as disparate and distant as Australia, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Norway, the United States and Canada, when I am at the control of travelers at Madrid’s Barajas-Adolfo Suárez Airport, bound for places as close as Barcelona or Tenerife, I cannot help but smile, remembering those fears of the past.
