2017 International Health and Safety Week

Veolia puts employees' health and safety at the heart of its culture. Each year, the company organizes the International Health and Safety Week across all projects and offices in China with the aim to raise employees' awareness on workplace safety.

The International Health and Safety Week is an annual event that demonstrates Veolia’s commitment to the well-being of its employees and the creation of a ZERO Accident workplace. This year, the event will take place from September 18 to 22, and will carry on the theme from last year, bringing in a new edition of 5 High-Risk Standards to caution the employees against potential workplace hazards.

2017 Health and Safety at Work Week is an important lever for the concrete steps that will enable us to take up the “zero serious accident” challenge.
