Screg Nord-Picardie has won the 2008 Colas Group France Inter-Subsidiary Road Safety Challenge

On April 2, 2009, Mr. Hervé Le Bouc, Chairman and CEO of the Colas Group, presented the 2008 Colas Group France Inter-Subsidiary Road Safety Challenge Trophy to Mr. Pascal Maridet, President of Screg Nord-Picardie, in the presence of the French inter-ministerial delegate for Road Safety, Michèle Merli.

For many years now, the Colas Group has shown its strong commitment to improving road safety. For the third time in a row, the Group has just renewed its Road Safety Charter Agreement with a government-backed organization.  In 2005, the Group also signed the European Road Safety Charter. 

In the field, the Group’s commitment is reflected in a very strong-willed prevention and emulation program.  Each year, the French trophy is awarded to the subsidiary with the best road safety performance. 

In 2008, Screg Nord-Picardie posted the best results and progress figures in the Group’s French companies – the frequency rate for car accidents went from 0.242 in 1997 to 0.059 in 2008, i.e., a 75% drop.
