Health & Safety
Safety at work, a common value
Occupational health and safety is our top priority at Bouygues Energies & Services Schweiz, as well as our parent company Bouygues Construction. Our main concern is to ensure 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.
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 anually 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 may be at risk.
Before starting work, our suppliers and subcontractors receive on-site instruction from an expert about potential hazards, and the steps they should take in an emergency.
Providing safe work equipment
We ensure that our employees have the appropriate work equipment to enable them to carry out their work as safely as possible.
Learning from mistakes
In the event that an incident occurs, we aim to learn from any 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 training.
When it comes to occupational health and safety, we are not prepared to compromise. We do everything in our power to offer our employees the safest possible working environment. Because preventing accidents is necessary for our employees, their families and to the Company.
