Health & safety at work
The prevention of work accidents is a core component of human-resources policy throughout the Group, and constitutes a key commitment on the part of Group management. The Eiffage Charter of Values and Objectives states that “compliance with health & safety rules is the cornerstone of a work-accident prevention policy. The objective is zero accident”. The framework agreements entered into with temporary work agencies contain specific clauses concerning the safety of temporary staff working on Eiffage projects.
Work-accident prevention takes different forms depending on the specific characteristics and organisational structures of individual Eiffage divisions:
Organisation of fifteen-minute safety sessions.
Sharing of best practices by site managers.
Meetings of all employees of an entity, at which all aspects of health & safety are examined.
Development of new working methods.
Optimisation of equipment in order to prevent musculoskeletal disorders.
Development of prefabricated modules to improve working conditions.
