All our employees are trained for 100% safety
Maintaining physical and moral integrity, protecting the health of staff and third parties and guaranteeing their safety are core obligations for the Group, as an ethical requirement but also to ensure performance.
Because these notions have been in Eiffage’s DNA for a long time, all our staff receive safety training, notably via the SMS (Safety Knowledge Control) programme set up by the company. Our certifying training courses deliver a non-transferrable passport on completion, specifying the employee's safety clearance level. These prior training courses have been extended on each site.
Our safety management system : strong imperatives
Company reliability can be measured by the capacity to improve work processes. It is important to detect and act on weak signals before the first signs of failure.
The safety management system has been developed in Eiffage Génie Civil's Safety Guide (Guide Prévention Sécurité) to meet International Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series OHSAS 18001 requirements.
Safety initiatives, and the responsibilities which come with them, are clearly defined at each management level. Our safety discipline process is applied on the basis of the rules of procedure and our 20 fundamental safety requirements.
Risk analysis taken on board at the earliest stage of the project
Project-specific risk analysis begins at the RFT stage. With the support of our design and engineering departments and technical divisions, it enables us to offer our clients the highest possible safety levels in all our production and works processes . Our safety programmes determine the safest possible worksite methods and conditions while preserving the comfort and best interests of public area users.
In line with our concern for environmental and ecosystem conservation, Eiffage Génie Civil has developed its ACCES protocol for prior assessment of chemical agents, with the aim of confirming the development and use of low-impact products.
Sharing our safety expertise
To capitalize on the efficiency of our safety procedures, we have set up our knowledge-sharing platform "StandART Safety : safety according to the rules". The platform is continually enriched with feedback from our various experiences in the field.
All our employees are expected to contribute their expertise to the risk control process. Our many programmes, regional safety committees and company agreements signed with unions and other social partners (to minimize harsh or difficult working conditions, psychological risk and occupational hazards) underline the importance of social dialogue in our health and safety campaigns.
Our relationships with subcontractors (outsourcing, suppliers and service providers) include monitored and tested safety requirements. We have signed up to a number of safety procedures specific to our contracting authorities, such as the MASE certification, via partnership charters or by taking part in the definition of safety specifications between professional organizations and institutional partners.
Eiffage Génie Civil is committed to preventing risks and promoting health and safety in our civil society as a whole, in the combat against HIV AIDS in Senegal for instance, or the provision of safety equipment for worksite integration projects in France.
Safety Force© : a collaborative application
With over 6,500 members, Safety Force©, is a smartphone app enabling safety performance to be measured in real time on all sites throughout the world, by assessing control of the 20 fundamental safety requirements. Eiffage Infrastructures' partners can take part in the evaluations and access the results.

Two years’ research and test periods in real-life work situations have resulted in new technical prowess for health and safety in the workplace, and in record time. Ironhand® bionic glove, developed by Eiffage with Swedish company Bioservo Technologies, is now available from Loxam for the whole profession. This robotic glove increases the hand's natural strength via the synthetic tendons it contains, thus drastically reducing the efforts required from worksite operators. An excellent means of preventing musculo-skeletal disorders. With Ironhand®, we can work more efficiently and in greater safety !
Our 100 % Safety target
Our employees are committed to ensuring maximum safety performance levels from the design stage to project delivery on a daily basis and for all involved : our workforce, partners, local residents and users of our engineering structures.
