A common objective, eliminating risk in the workplace
Safety in the workplace is the core focus of the Group’s human resources policy. In 2010, PSA put in place an ambitious and active initiative on workplace safety involving all Group employees, beginning with the Executive Committee and service providers. All members of personnel have a stake in safety results. The Group has put in place personal targets for managers and also made this criterion part of profit-sharing agreements.
Group policy on health and safety in the workplace is based on the deployment of the Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHSM) system. All sites are committed to this structured approach, which has already demonstrated its efficiency in the four years since it was set up. Zero accidents in the workplace is the only acceptable target for the Group, which believes that efficient development demands the safety of all employees.
The OHSM standard seeks to assess, track and control risks at all levels of the company, from the design of a new product, process or installation, through to the assessment of each workstation. Prevention and continuous improvements in safety are also key components of the OHSM system.
PSA Group has decided to focus on five key areas: preventing musculoskeletal disorders, psychosocial risks and chemical risks, and developing efforts to identify high-risk behaviour.
