Commitment 8 : work together to ensure health and safety at work
SUEZ environnement is targeting a 30% reduction in the frequency rate of work-related accidents and a 10% decrease in their severity rate by the time the Sustainable Development Roadmap expires. To achieve such ambitious targets, the same intensity of commitment is required from all employees over the long term, for we know that this is a prerequisite for a continuous improvement in results.

Reduce the accident severity rate by at least 10%.
Boost and systemize health and safety visits on the ground involving members of the management staff of the subsidiaries.
Increase the consideration of accidents involving temporary personnel.
Constantly improve the quality of life at work.
Reduce the absenteeism rate.
