International Safety Day 2009
In 2009, Eurovia mobilized all of its personnel for its International Safety Day, an initiative designed to raise awareness with respect to workplace accidents and their consequences. At Eurovia sites throughout the world, employees took a break from their activities in order to view the film, The Day After, which was screened in their language. Following the screening, discussions were held, allowing participants to share their experience of occupational risk and workplace accidents. Later, two practical workshops were held on the following themes: risk of crushing accidents; and cause-effect analysis with regard to accidents. Our International Safety Day led to local action plans designed to enhance workplace safety.
