At Socotec, the road risk prevention policy is based on three levers. “Strengthened managerial management, increased employee involvement and regular performance monitoring”, lists Yves Colliard, quality and safety director. The Socotec group is particularly specialized in advice on risk management and improvement of building performance.
A good conduct plan in 2021
Socotec has thus implemented its “good conduct plan” in 2021. It includes, for example, e-learning sessions accompanied by quizzes. Sessions offered to employees when taking control of their vehicle or to all staff on the eve of leaving on vacation, for example.
“We organize workshops for newcomers or young drivers, a category overrepresented in road accidents”, adds Yves Colliard. Also on the list of actions: drivers of company vehicles must sign and respect a charter of good conduct on the road. They must also follow an e-learning session on road safety. As a reminder, Socotec has 5,500 employees in France.

The latter has also shown its effectiveness from the first year, “with a drop in the number of road accidents and road incidents in 2021”, indicates Yves Colliard. It should be noted that Socotec recently signed the “7 commitments for a safer road”.
