HEALTH, SAFETY AND SECURITY ARE INTEGRAL PARTS OF OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
SYSTRA is synonymous with operational excellence, and there is no operational excellence without the mobilization of our employees, partners and clients to ensure the health, safety and security of:
- The public, by proposing clean, reliable and safe transport systems;
- Our colleagues, the employees of construction companies that we supervise, and operators, by offering a working environment, equipment, an organization and know-how enabling work with complete peace of mind and confidence.
A mindset that focuses on the positive rather than seeking to eliminate only the negative is the foundation of SYSTRA’s commitment to Health, Safety & Security. Creating Health, Safety & Security rather than simply being reactive to prevent illness or incidents can be achieved through bold leadership, fearless open communication, effective risk management, positive employee engagement, value-added training and sharing of Health, Safety & Security best practices.RAFIK KACI, DIRECTOR OF HEALTH, SAFETY & SECURITY (3S) AND QUALITY, NORTH AMERICA
At SYSTRA, we believe that implementing a strong Health, Safety & Security culture is the foundation of a successful business.
For questions of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), SYSTRA has implemented an innovative approach.
In concrete terms, this apporach has three stages:
1 – A simplification of our Health, Safety and Security Management System
It is essential that each employee finds meaning in and personifies the company’s HSS vision. The ambition that motivates us goes far beyond the “zero accident” doctrine. It is no longer about adding rules each time there is a new incident but about putting in place managerial routines that are proactive, simple, mature and effective for ensuring operational excellence on a daily basis, in all that we do.
2 – A positive redefinition of Health, Safety and Security
The traditional HSS approach limits HSS to the management of risks: do what is necessary to ensure that as little as possible goes badly. SYSTRA has decided to translate Health, Safety & Security into opportunities that contribute to the operational performance of the company: do what is necessary to ensure that as much as possible goes well. This initiative makes sense for our teams, our partners and our clients, who are increasingly aware that HSS is transforming our company in a positive way.
3 – Concrete acts of leadership
At SYSTRA, the health, safety and security of the public, transport industry actors and our colleagues is a real moral responsibility! To be a reference company and contribute to a safer world, the involvement of managers is essential. It is via their daily commitment to HSS, via their ability to set an example by having a “safety attitude” that all our colleagues will share these common values. Safety is everyone’s business, and everyone is committed to ensuring it on a daily basis.
OUR POLICY ON HEALTH, SAFETY AND SECURITY HAS A VERY WIDE SCOPE
Ensure the safety of transport systems designed by SYSTRA, of future users, operators, maintenance staff and third parties.
Protection of our colleagues and subcontractors
Safeguard the physical and mental integrity of our employees and the employees of our subcontractors, as soon as they work or travel for SYSTRA.
Safety of employees of construction companies that we supervise
Ensure that the company respects the HSS contractual and regulatory provisions and ensure the protection on a daily basis of all the people present on the site.
Protect and process our information and that of our stakeholders in such a way as to guarantee at any time its confidentiality, integrity and availability, through our individual practices and our information systems.
Contribute to the resilience of the frim through the anticipation, preparation and management of any crisis situation.
