Artelia considers health, safety and security to be crucially important issues. They concern our staff and subcontractors first and foremost, but our HSE policy also benefits construction contractors supervised by Artelia, as well as all other project stakeholders.
Our Management System has enabled most of the company’s sites to achieve OHSAS 18001 certification. Our performance indicators (occupational injury frequency and severity rates) are better than industry standardsand we hope to improve them even further.
The group’s training plan offers many topics related to safety aspects and we have recently focused our awareness raising efforts on security during assignments performed abroad.
The culture of raising the alarm that we have established also encourages our staff to report and document incidents, hazardous situations or near-misses so that the group can constantly develop its continual improvement policy.
The Security Manager and the Health and Safety Manager coordinate all group actions and are regularly in touch with the Human Resources Department and staff representative bodies.
