The first step towards risk management is knowledge
We strongly believe in making our employees aware of danger sources, and aware of safety rules and regulations.
We insist that all employees:
- Follow all safety rules and regulations, which are pertinent and necessary to their position
- Conform to safe working practices
- Commit to completing all safety-related training and certification programs
The safety of one is the concern of all
Each employee partly controls occupational risk prevention for himself but also for his colleagues. At Veolia, we are committed to involving employees in health and safety initiatives and reporting, as well as in finding more reliable safety practices.
We encourage employees to integrate health and safety principles in everything they do and to learn to detect behaviour which presents risk. We believe that everyone has a part to play in the chain of responsibility which will enable us to further reduce accidents at work.
We make sure that our employees know that their safety is our utmost priority and that they are entitled to refuse to take part in any activity where they feel that their safety might be in jeopardy.
Risk management while on mission
We understand that our employees may be facing greater risk in their country of assignment. We are committed to making sure that our employees are safe at all times and that they have access to resources to help and assist them with any problem they might be faced with.
