Product innovation towards workers safety on worksites
9% of the employees of the general scheme work for the Building and Public Work Industry. In this field, there are about 18% of lost time accident and nearly 30% of deaths*. Even if, in the last 30 years, the prevention of occupational risk has divided by 3 the number of fatal accidents, still workers of the Building and Public Work Industry are more exposed to higher risks of work accidents than the others. The variety, the complexity of the interventions and technics on one and same worksite, the number of persons involved, the delivery issues etc., all these are the reasons why SATECO R&D Dpt keeps studying to improve and create equipment always safer for the users on the worksites.
