Health & Safety
Occupational health and safety is always a top priority at Bouygues Energies & Services in Switzerland and our parent company Bouygues Construction. Our utmost concern is to ensure that our employees go home to their families every day in the same healthy and safe state in which they arrive at work. This also applies to our customers, the people who use the building entrusted to our care, as well as our subcontractors for whom we bear responsibility in the course of our day-to-day activities.
Safety at work, a common value
We want to embed these health and safety values deep in our company and in our employees’ minds. We plan to achieve this through the following measures:
Employee training and awareness boosting
Our employees receive regular training on and have their awareness reinforced about varied and diverse issues relating to health and safety. Some of these training sessions take place within individual teams. Others take place once a year, right across Switzerland, on the World Day for Safety and Health at Work (SafeDay).
Our employees say STOP
We regularly call on our employees to say STOP in dangerous situations and to stop work where necessary. This does not just apply to work that we carry out ourselves, but also to situations in which our colleagues, subcontractors, suppliers or customers might be at risk.
Before starting work, our suppliers and subcontractors receive on-site instruction from an expert about potential hazards and the steps they need to take in an emergency.
Providing safe work equipment
We make sure that our employees have the appropriate work equipment to enable them to carry out their work as safely as possible and without accident.
Learning from mistakes
In the event that an incident occurs, we aim to learn from our mistakes. Every accident is reviewed on-site, with the people affected, by specialists from our Safety department and, where possible, processed for use in future trainings.
When it comes to occupational health and safety, we are not prepared to compromise. We will do everything in our power to offer our employees the safest possible working environment. Because every accident prevented is a gift to our employees, their relatives and to the company.
Motivation + satisfaction = health. This is our formula for success
Health and happiness at work are essential to the profitability and competitiveness of Bouygues Energies & Services. Nevertheless, the commercial aspect is not in focus. As a company, we are interested in how our employees feel and how they are doing, both physically and mentally. With the company health management, we systematically influence all health-relevant factors and want to strengthen the health awareness of our employees. Responsibility for the health of our employees is part of our corporate culture.
