Bouygues UK chairman of and UK country manager for Bouygues Construction Fabienne Viala said: “The health and safety of everyone engaged in a Bouygues Construction workplace is of paramount importance. This event provides an opportunity for each of us to revisit our individual commitment to health and safety, as well as to reflect on the behaviours of others around us.

“Health & safety plays a key role in every aspect of life; at work and at home; it’s a mind-set and focussing on and improving upon our health and safety culture is everyone’s responsibility.

“Making sure that everyone, whoever they are, goes home safely to their loved ones is our collective duty.”
