The ENGIE Health policy aims to protect the physical and psychological health of Group employees, as well as its subcontractors, temporary staff, service providers and other external partners, while continuously improving quality of life at work.
Preventing Musculoskeletal Disorders is a top priority of the ENGIE Health & Safety 2010-2015 action plan. To strengthen this initiative, a workgroup consisting of members from different business lines compiled the expertise acquired by teams. This expertise was summarized and published in guideline form in 2012. Available to all ENGIE employees through the Group intranets, this guide is an important tool for transmitting and sharing essential information on the prevention of these disorders.
Aggressive behavior by customers or third parties can often generate stress and prove difficult to manage. To limit these risks, the Health and Safety Management Systems Department developed a guide that notably lists the practices to avoid and the best communication strategies to adopt in these situations. Compiled in 2012, the guide is available to all employees on the Group intranet.
GDF SUEZ SA contributes to the fight against diabetes. For World Diabetes Day in November 2012, employees at the T1 and T2 towers in the La Défense business district of Paris, where the ENGIE head office is located, took part in an information campaign on this topic. The Diabetes Information Bus offered interactive learning tools to help employees learn more about the risks associated with this disease, which can be avoided through good hygiene and diet. This initiative was undertaken in partnership with the Association Française des Diabétiques de France (AFD), the Association Santé en Entreprise (SEE) and FOOD, a European program that aims to promote balanced nutrition.
The Group is a signatory of the “Charte du cœur” project. This initiative brings together more than 80 companies to raise awareness and provide information on heart health risks and what to do in case of cardiac arrest. It also promotes training programs in first aid and the use of defibrillators. This is a crucial initiative for the professional and personal lives of employees.
