The health and safety of its employees is an absolute priority for Bouygues Construction, reflected in a single global standard: the “zero accident” objective. This aim is expressed in several initiatives, such as workforce training, continuous improvement of construction methods, anti-addiction campaigns and more stringent on-site controls.

Ethical behaviour by managers and sales teams is another key commitment, with the aim of guaranteeing all customers a high level of ethical responsibility.
