Raising awareness of accident risks among new hires
On worksites, new hires are more frequently at risk with respect to accidents. Consequently, in 2003, Eurovia created a "first day" training program and knowledge evaluation test for young recruits. In 2007, this initiative was extended to the recruitment of temporary personnel and to other Company business lines, including quarries, demolition sites, and laboratories. It has also been deployed in Germany, North America, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom. Since 2009, it has been in application in Construction, civil engineering and at VINCI Concessions. Since its inception, 32,000 tests have been delivered to new hires and 9,500 to temporary personnel.
This initiative garnered a Dissemination Prize in the Vendor Dissemination category of the 2009 VINCI Innovation Awards.
