Colas Safety Week: June 25-29, 2018

For the 6th consecutive year, Colas is organizing Safety Week, a week-long event dedicated to safety throughout its 800 business units and 2,000 production units worldwide on all 5 continents. The 2018 program focuses on the fight against addictions: alcohol, drugs, prescription drugs, and smartphones.

A week of awareness on the risks related to addictions

The 2018 edition of Safety Week focuses on the dangers of addiction. Its cornerstones include a widespread poster campaign, short quizzes for employees to test their knowledge and a docudrama shot in a Colas agency, in which Colas employees participate alongside professional actors. Information will be provided to employees to present the impact of each addiction and offer advice, best practices, and support.

Safety: a daily concern!

Above and beyond "Safety Week", Colas' safety policy is based on four main themes:

  • complying with safety rules on a daily basis,
  • training and informing,
  • designing safe construction sites and processes,
  • verifying actions carried out by the Group,

and on another cornerstone that is Innovation (Exopush, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, etc.).

Along with Ethics, Safety is the # 1 value at Colas. The Group has been working with an active risk and accident prevention policy for more than twenty years and aims to be a benchmark company in the field.
