Services adapted to any company

Workers and member companies

The health care and management model of Mutua Universal allows the products and services to be adapted to companies of any size and activity sector right from the beginning with customised care and constant collaboration.

How can we contribute to the competitiveness and productivity of companies?

The impact of the economic crisis and the development of new technologies, among other factors, are causing a structural change in the Spanish business network. Companies of all dimensions and sectors require innovative, highly efficient solutions and to develop and maintain teams of high performance that contribute to promote their competitiveness.

To guarantee their continuity, these teams must be united, motivated and in good health, which is why risk prevention and flexible rehabilitation of the workers are becoming more and more significant.

Within the legal framework in force, we develop consulting programmes and activities, and technical and health care guidance so that member companies can carry out effective management with regard to preventing work-related accidents and occupational diseases.
