Golden Rules

1. Situations presenting a risk

Any situation in which the risk level has temporarily risen above the normal level must be flagged and handled as a "degraded situation".

Compensatory measures are implemented.

2. Traffic: heavy plant / vehicle / pedestrian

The daily individual distance limit per driver must be respected: 400km on main roads or secondary roads, 700km on motorways.
Driving is limited to 6 hours, with breaks recommended every 2 hours.

3. Movement / posture / tools

Any posture not appropriate for the execution of a task may result in injury. The "Movements and postures" fundamental rules must be applied


4. Protective equipment

No access to a specific zone, and no work to be carried out without the appropriate personal protective equipment.

5. Work permit

All works carried out during operations require a systematic risk analysis and an approved work permit.

6. Lifting operations

Work involving a crane, hoist or any other lifting device, including forklift trucks, can only start if the safety conditions are in place.

7. Working on powered systems

In the case of works which require power to be switched off or production to stop, consignment is compulsory.

8. Confined spaces

A confined area can only be entered if under supervision and after the insulation has been inspected and the atmosphere is under control.

9. Excavations

Manual or mechanical excavation work can only begin once the safety conditions are in place.

10. Working at height

Collective protection is preferred (railings, platforms). Personal protection (harnesses, tethers, cord attachments) complement other measures.

11. Change management

The potential impact of any organisational and/or technical change must be identified through a risk analysis.

If necessary, new resources or compensatory measures may be put in place.


12. Simultaneous operations or co-activities

Any works and/or simultaneous operations on a production unit are likely to increase the risk level.

Interferences must be identified, controlled or eliminated
