For many years, Bouygues Construction has strived towards making safety a priority. The group implements their own strict safety standards and invests in innovative equipment, in an aim to have “zero accidents” on-site. Preparing a site and making it safe is key to limit risks and to protect each siteworker and sub-contractor from a potential accident. Hoist, elevator: using high-performance and suitable tools is a way of reducing occupational health risks and to maintain everyone’s health. At Bouygues Construction, site managers are trained in health & safety and hold a supervisory role over teams. The enforce the standards which surpass usual industry requirements.

Bouygues Construction are pioneers for initiatives that reinforce on-site safety and maintain “zero accidents”.

These awareness campaigns have really demonstrated their effectiveness with figures constantly falling. The group’s aim for the future is to be zero risk.
