Safety attitude

Prázdny

The „Safety attitude“ campaign remains at the heart of the safety policy of the entire COLAS group, in every single company. It is our reference point to achieve our goals.

The main idea of this campaign is the conviction that safety in offices, during the production or during road works is a matter of everyday behaviours and habits that we may deliberately form. Safety means the engagement of the entire team, starting from company´s CEO and top managment, to employees at lower levels.

Ensuring safety in COLAS is not only our responsibility, it is more than just the priority, i tis a value for which we all do care about. The top managment is personally engaged in implementation of the „Safety attitude“ program and gives everyone an example of safe behaviour.

Dialogue with an employee is the key point of the whole program. We attach much importance to everyday „STARTER“ meetings with employees before works start on site as well as to regular meetings of OHS officers with employees.

My dad works here!

Safety campaign to increase awarness of road users to improve safety of COLAS employees

Road construction projects represent our main activities. Our employees work regularly on construction sites with presence of road traffic. How many times have you seen such construction site? Your speed limit is gradually slowed down. You pass by the machines, the trucks, the smell of fresh asphalt and the people who call such sites their daily workplace.

Road construction are at heart of our activities, therefore road safety belongs to the long-term priority of the Colas Group. Campaign My Dad works here! was created to bring such construction sites into the attention of all employees, their families as well as general public. Colas Europe launched the campaign with logos created in thirteen different languages versions.

As a part of our daily business, we put in place safety norms and procedures, secure the construction sites in order to create a safe working environment for our employees.

Despite all of the effort, we cannot control the behavior of third party road users. However, we can inform, persuade and motivate the public to be aware of the risk related to road construction sites and to change their behavior accordingly.

You can discover more in a video herebelow, created by National Asphalt Pavement Association, for their similarly focused campaign called 'Watch for us', created in co-operation with Washington State Department of Transportation. (Colas is a member of NAPA).
