Acting sustainably | Commitment #1

Put health, safety and well-being at the heart of our concerns by continuing the implementation of world-class HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment) management systems and developing a culture in which people safety is a core value. 

Progress towards Zero Accidents

The Group is convinced that each employee plays an essential role in terms of their own safety and that of their colleagues.

For this, many preventive actions to progress towards Zero Accidents are implemented.

Since 2016, for example, the managerial teams of the Group have increased their collective presence with a “boots on the ground” approach. This approach is called “Gemba Walk”, a Japanese term meaning "the real place where things happen". These discussions are constructive and interactive between a supervisor and one or more operators in the site. These discussions are  supported by a follow-up of the actions decided.

The goal is to encourage commitment by everyone to our continuous improvement approach to safety, and it has also a positive impact on quality, environment and performance.

“Gemba Walks” are now live in all our plants, with an inspiring pilot in Cassano in Italy where we use the help of a digital tablet to make the “Gemba Walk” interactive and share best practices.
