VINCI Facilities, striving for zero accidents

The health, safety and welfare of everyone involved in the delivery of our services is one of our deepest core values. We reject the idea that workplace accidents are unavoidable. Our management has a responsibility to do its utmost to ensure the physical health and safety of everyone on our worksites and in the facilities we operate. Our goal is to achieve “ ZERO ACCIDENTS ”. This means that no-one should suffer injury whilst working in our clients’ premises, on our projects or whilst travelling on company business. All work related accidents are in essence preventable.

    To achieve our goal, we expect our employees and subcontractors to work safely at all times, to take immediate preventive action if they encounter an unsafe situation affecting themselves or their co-workers and to report unsafe working practices to senior management.

    Our  6 commitments to total safety                                     

    • Evaluate the health and safety hazards of each workplace and work environment and provide a security plan for each specific site.

    • Undertake regular toolbox meetings; discuss the risks associated with our operations and how to prevent accidents.

    • Regularly conduct safety inspections to monitor the safety of our operations and identify possible improvements.

    • Analyse all dangerous situations, accidents and near misses that occur during our operations, to prevent reoccurrences. These dangerous situations are reported by our employees with the Time-Out booklets.

    • Ensure that everyone involved in our operations has been trained appropriately and has the necessary skills to carry out their work.

    • Communicate regularly with our employees and subcontractors regarding the importance of their health and safety, share knowledge and best practice.

    All players within the total security policy

    All managers were addressed so that each business unit implements a concrete commitment and ensures the availability of the necessary resources.

    All employees actively participated in the Safety Day, a day dedicated to the safety of VINCI Energies in which everyone paid extra attention to the risks and dangerous situations encountered by themselves, their colleagues and the subcontractors.

    Safety begins with the application of the prevention rules, but if a dangerous situation with a near miss occurs, management must immediately be informed so the security measures can be adjusted accordingly.
