Whatever the size of your organization and whatever your sector of activity, as an employer you have a duty to safeguard the physical and mental well-being of your employees.

A health and safety culture in the workplace is a response to major human and regulatory challenges, and must be integrated into the company's usual practices. Preserving the quality of working life and reducing psychosocial risks for employees is also a key factor in guaranteeing company performance.  

This occupational health and safety policy is reflected in the implementation of various preventive actions (risk analysis, training, audits, consulting and technical support, safety of installations and equipment, etc.).

Your question on health and safety at work

  • Why seek support in managing health and safety risks in the workplace?

    Health and safety risks are numerous and complex. They vary greatly from one sector to another, but also depend on the type of building, the specific features of the site, the operational reality of the company concerned, and the workstation. Calling on the services of a technical consultant offers the certainty of not neglecting any type of risk (technical, psychosocial, chemical, physical...) and of ensuring the highest degree of workplace safety at all times.
  • When should you seek consulting and technical support in occupational health and safety?

    You can request technical support at any time, whether to anticipate occupational hazards associated with a specific project (construction site, installation, fitting-out of premises, company restructuring, change in working conditions, etc.) or to assess and reinforce the health and safety of your workers on a day-to-day basis.
  • How can you strengthen your occupational health and safety culture?

    A number of prevention, information and training initiatives can be deployed to reinforce the company's occupational health and safety culture, such as :
