Groupe Atlantic News.
Our employees are our most valuable asset, which is why we attach particular importance to the safety of everyone. Based on cross-functionality and responsibility, groupe atlantic’s safety culture is spread across all business fields and entities.
“Each manager must ensure that their Group employees are safe, whether at the plant, in the office, or on the road. This prioritisation has helped to reduce the number of accidents by 13% between 2018 and 2019.”
Emmanuel Caille, Group Managing Industrial Director
At industrial and commercial sites as well as on the road, GROUPE ATLANTIC encourages everyone to be responsible in the face of everyday risks. To put this into action, the Group created a Safety Club three years ago, establishing ten cross-departmental workshops:
- Road risk electrical risk
- Machine and equipment risk
- Risk when working at height
- Chemical risk fire risk sanitary
- Risk relating to external companies;
- Risk relating to physical activity;
- Risk relating to traffic flow at the sites;
- Compliance with legal obligations.
These workshops help us to set goals which are sometimes more demanding than the local regulations and to measure our progress over time.
The Group has likewise formed partnerships with expertsafety organisations: the IOSH* in the UK trained all of the site managersin the United Kingdom, Egypt, Ukraine and Georgia on anticipating/responding to hazardous situations, and the ICSI** helped us to develop our safety culture in order to diagnose both key strengths and areas for improvement.
* Institution of Occupational Health and Safety ** Institute for an Industrial Safety Culture [Institut pour une culture de sécurité Industrielle]
We continually strive to professionalise our safety management, be more precise in our fundamentals and take inspiration from best practices implemented elsewhere.
Health security -COVID-19: a new security issue for all
How to talk about security without addressing the health crisis that affected the world in 2020? Distribution of masks and hydroalcoholic gels, reminder of barrier measures, reinforced cleaning, etc. The organization put in place as well as the protective equipment deployed have been the subject of the most serious attention. The goal? Ensure the safety of Group employees and visitors to our sites. Safety is everyone's business!
