Health and Safety

Achieving zero severe accidents

Wherever it operates around the world, Health and Safety remains an utmost priority for the entire company, its employees and its contractors. Alstom deploys ambitious programmes to reach a clear target: prevent accidents and eliminate all severe accidents.

Health and Safety improvement is key for Alstom, which is why the Alstom Zero Deviation Plan focuses on high-risk activities to protect all employees and contractors worldwide from the risks they may face.

Launched in June 2012, it focuses on the monitoring of the most hazardous activities and has strongly contributed to the reduction of the number of severe accidents.

Training

Alstom designs and deploys safety-training modules to answer generic and specific needs. For example, a dedicated training course has been created for employees at construction sites in order for them to have a better understanding of all the risks related to working in such a complex railway environment. Alstom is also deploying accident investigation training in order to reinforce its ability to identify the causes of events.

“Safety Observation Visits” programme

Launched several years ago, it is intended to develop managerial practices encouraging a positive safety culture and safe behaviour among all our employees.

Since April 2015, visits have been regularly organised in almost 100% of European sites and more than 3,500 Safety Observation visits have been performed by managers in Europe.

Health and Safety results

These efforts led to the achievement of significant results:

“Every year we reinforce the safety of our workplaces. That is our first priority.”

As of March 2020, the injury frequency rate of employees & contractors in numbers of injuries/million of hours worked was 1.0

More specifically, safety results encompass the following:

Lost-Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR)
employees 1.2
contractors 0.6
Occupational Illness Frequency Rate (OIFR): 0.62
Worked hours 
employees 72,202,860
contractors 33,653,535

Local deployment

Many country initiatives have been put in place in order to address the specific local Health and Safety challenges. A few examples below:

  • In January 2018, Alstom launched its first company-wide Health and Well-Being Day to promote healthy behaviours at work and at home. At the beginning of 2019, two awareness days were organised at Alstom’s headquarters in Saint-Ouen: one to promote well-being at work, and the other to raise awareness about sorting waste.
  • Alstom's Villeurbanne site also organised a day on the topic of sorting waste, for which a dehydrator was set up to reduce the amount of food waste by 80%
  • In Romania, the “EHS Daily” initiative, a cross between a training programme and a team challenge, was a great success. 85% of employees voluntarily connected to a digital platform to answer questions about safety that were derived from situations in their own working environment. 98% of participants felt that the action had reinforced their understanding of health and safety rules.
  • La Rochelle’s manufacturing site received the first prize of the 2018 Mobility Challenge on 7 November 2018 from the President of the Urban Community and the Mayor of La Rochelle;
  • In the USA, a “safety hero” programme was conducted to improve the safety culture by promoting people with exemplary behaviour.
  • Two employees from Sorel Tracy (Canada) were declared “Safety Heroes” under a North American program that praises employees for their exemplary contribution to the improvement of health and safety at work for their colleagues;
  • Alstom Spain has initiated a global 3-year plan based on 4 priority pillars:

- Health monitoring
- Risk prevention
- Healthy mind
- Healthy eating, physical activities

  • Alstom Qatar (namely the Al-Kheesa-based Supply Chain team) won a competition organised between several companies by the client of the tramway project. The ranking was established based on EHS criteria, such as the compliance of personal protective equipment, the reporting of near-accidents, or the number of incidents and accidents.

To support local initiatives, a dedicated plan to health and well-being at work is being deployed across Alstom to evaluate the local needs and to define the challenges to be addressed in the coming years.
