Anticipation, protection, training, communication and above all responsibility
Safety is one aspect of the professionalism Degremont expects of its teams. It stems from an attitude cultivated at all levels of the company and from design to plant operation. Degremont has made safety a core element in all its business segment processes and an integral part of its management system.
Protect by anticipating risks
Degremont’s safety and prevention policy is part of a more overarching approach. It concerns people, plant and equipment, processes and facilities. It is taken into account right from site design and at every stage in the Group’s business. It is applied with the same rigour in all the countries where the Group operates, while specific local features are also taken into account.
A culture of safety for company growth
Degremont takes steps to convey a genuine culture of safety to its teams. More than this, it has made it a management tool, starting with training managers and teams to change behaviours, raise risk awareness, etc. Management’s onsite safety inspections and compliance audits are effected company-wide, demonstrating the managers’ commitment to safety. This is a key factor for a well-rooted and successful culture of safety.
Health and safety built into the management system and working methods
To have all staff routinely implement health and safety measures, this must not be seen as a matter for experts but must structure business segment processes and methods and must be incorporated into purchasing, HR and other support functions.
Health and safety as value-added for the Group, its customers and its partners
In all three Degremont business segments, the care and attention paid to safety is a real asset for our customers.
