Our activities in the field

Eurovia built its prevention-health-safety approach by deploying innovation activities at the highest level of the Company; these activities are based on best field practices and are disseminated throughout the Company’s business units. This approach allows the Company to set ambitious objectives and enables its divisions and sites to intensify their efforts in support of prevention. A network of 150 dedicated prevention experts, 189 committees on occupational health and safety and working conditions (CHSCT), time and effort devoted to discussion and training (First-day safety orientation, Prevention Brief, Safety Flash, awareness meetings, and safety training sessions), worksite tours and information and training tools (brochures, individual protection catalogues, intranet safety quiz, instructional films, etc.) – these resources are at the heart of our safety and prevention activities and allow Eurovia to make continuous improvements in this area, which is a Company priority.


Key figures

As the European leader in transportation infrastructure development, Eurovia is committed to remaining on the leading edge of occupational safety and has deployed a systematic approach to achieve its zero-accident objective. All initiatives designed to encourage employees to consider and minimize risk have allowed the Company to reduce its accident frequency rate by a factor of 2 since 2003, and by a factor of 3 since 2000.
