The Zero Workplace Accident 2020-2022 program has been rolled out at 15 Ares job placement facilities. The goals of the Zero Accident program are:
In three years we aim to go from a place where safety rules are nonexistent or largely ignored, to “I’m doing this because it’s the rule”, then to “I’m doing this because it’s good for me”, and finally reach “I take pride in helping others improve their safety performance”.
Ares identified three priorities for their action plan:
The program is benefitting from the expertise of an Air Liquide group employee, a former site director and director of safety for industrial activities at the Air Liquide Group in France. He is now donating his expertise full-time.
Employees in job placement
Logistics, construction, circular economy, sorting, digital services
Job placement facilities
Training hours per years
The Air Liquide Foundation made the Zero Workplace Accident by 2022 program possible: jobs for prevention specialists, training, and the online platform for tracking implementation and prevention measures. Ares also has support from an Air Liquide Group employee, a former site director and director of safety for industrial activities at the Air Liquide Group in France. He is now donating his expertise full-time.
