VINCI's health and safety policy

VINCI's overriding priority is to attain its goal of Zero Accidents.
This goal applies to Group employees, temporary personnel, service providers and the employees of joint contractors and subcontractors working on its sites.

VINCI's H&S policy:
· anticipate and prevent workplace health and safety risks (including harassment and psycho-social risks);
· ensure that working conditions are safe, healthy and do not pose any hygiene risks;
· ensure that alternative employment is offered to employees who suffer workplace accidents or work-related illness.

Over the past five years this proactive policy has resulted in a significant fall in accident frequency, down 34%, and a 21% fall in the lost-time accident severity rate.

The goal, reiterated in VINCI’s new Manifesto, applies not only to VINCI employees, but also to temporary staff and anyone else working on a VINCI site, including the employees of joint contractors and subcontractors. The Group encourages and supports its subcontractors and suppliers in this effort; it also shares its resources with them and involves them in safety actions. In five years, this approach has reduced the frequency of lost-time accidents by 23% and their severity by almost 7%.
