Prevention policy

Your safety is our priority

The Legrand Group's safety policy, recognised for its exemplary nature, is continuing to progress.

Recorded in the Prevention Charter, the Legrand Group's safety policy implements three principles:

  • Compliance with national laws and regulations
  • Incorporation of safety and the environment in the industrial processes
  • Harmonisation of the health and safety strategies

This policy forms part of the structuring directions that shape the Legrand Group's CSR strategy. Legrand continues its business development while paying particular attention to the working conditions of its employees and its responsibilities as an employer and a social actor.

Our health and safety policy is embodied in actions on the technical, organisational and individual levels:

  • Shared reporting tools help consolidate data prevention statistics to promote best practices throughout the Group.
  • Historically, the Group defines objectives in terms of preventive measures implemented. The Group believes this is an effective way to build solid foundations and improve over the long term. Accordingly, each Group entity improves its management of workplace health and safety through the establishment of appropriate measures in compliance with the Group’s prevention policy.
  • Risk management is continuously being improved with regard to both automatic and manual production equipment, whether it is designed in-house or bought in.
  • A Group agreement in France for the integration of disabled persons was signed in France in 2009. It contains precise commitments regarding adaptation of work areas, training people and partnership operations.

The ILO-OSH 2001 guidelines, whose implementation was started in 2005, have already led to the setting up of a global database to consolidate the “health and safety” indicators and share feedback.

ILO-OSH 2001 guidelines

These are guidelines drawn up by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The guidelines derive their legitimacy from the very structure of this organisation, which is made up of representatives of countries, employers and workers. This tripartite structure has resulted in a very consensual guide, whose editorial contents are close to the world of prevention of occupational risks.

Since it places staff at the heart of the process of ongoing improvement, it is considered to be the most “participative” guide currently available.

In addition to the process of continuous improvement, a system based on ILO-OSH 2001 must take better account of the needs of occupational health and safety stakeholders and ensure greater formalisation of our practices in the area.

At Legrand, we want to harmonise our health and safety methods and tools across all of our sites worldwide as much as is possible and necessary. This is the objective of the “Esculape” demarche which is already bringing about advances in good health and safety practices in France and Italy, and will over time be introduced in all the Group’s units.
