Colas Solutions Stand Down Safety Day

A week of awareness on the risks related to addictions

 

The 2018 edition of Safety Week focuses on the dangers of addiction. Its cornerstones include a widespread poster campaign, short quizzes for employees to test their knowledge and a docudrama shot in a Colas agency, in which Colas employees participate alongside professional actors. Information will be provided to employees to present the impact of each addiction and offer advice, best practices, and support.

 

Safety: a daily concern!

Above and beyond “Safety Week”, Colas’ safety policy is based on four main themes:

  • complying with safety rules on a daily basis,
  • training and informing,
  • designing safe construction sites and processes,
  • verifying actions carried out by the Group,

and on another cornerstone that is Innovation (Exopush, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, etc.).

Along with Ethics, Safety is the # 1 value at Colas. The Group has been working with an active risk and accident prevention policy for more than twenty years and aims to be a benchmark company in the field.

Crack Sealing Lines

When crack sealing needs to be applied in a straight line with no mess, we use a tape to create a neat line. The other option is to apply our SealCoat as a final treatment so that the crack sealing is less noticeable.
