Health and safety / Environment

Risk control
part of corporate culture

In 2018, the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 audits confirmed the Group's maturity gains in terms of health and safety and the environment, with LISI now being certified at Group level according to these two standards.

For many years, the LISI Group has considered measuring the environmental and social impact of its industrial activities to be an indicator as efficient as its economic and financial performance. The actions it implements to optimize control of these risks are determined at the highest level of the company. They are deployed across the sites methodically, based on the LISI Excellence-HSE program, an integral part of the LISI System for these issues.

Risk control

A program, a common culture

This program sets ambitious objectives and encourages excellence throughout the company's HSE strategy. Designed to accelerate the emergence of this common culture, LISI Excellence HSE (E-HSE) aims to lay a solid foundation for consistency with fundamentals such as compliance with conformity obligations, whether regulatory or other, as well as the continuous improvement of our performance results and organizations. LISI E-HSE relies on a set of operational tools that can be used to act according to 15 areas of excellence of which 3 fundamentals: risk assessment and control; the implementation of common HSE rules; the development of safer behaviors.

Finally, this program makes it possible to assess each of the Group's sites according to four levels of maturity: the first fixed level relates to compliance with international standards ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. It is followed by the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, which are the growing levels of excellence and appropriation of the HSE culture. In 2018, 10 LISI sites were ranked Bronze.

Protection & prevention
Permanent commitments

In 2018, 66% of production sites have an accident with and without a stoppage frequency rate of less than 10 accidents per million hours worked.

-29%
Decline in TF0 accidents (with stoppage) since 2013 (employees + temps)

-37%
Decline in TF1 accidents (with and without stoppage) since 2013 (employees + temps)

Ensuring the safety, health and well-being at work of all LISI Group employees is a top priority for the company. The continuous improvement procedures and methods put in place to reduce the risks are in accordance with the OHSAS 18001 standard for which LISI is certified. The Group's objective is to achieve, by 2020, an accidentology threshold of less than 8 accidents at work with or without stoppage per million hours worked, for all collaborators, employees and temporary personnel (TF1). In 2018, this rate dropped from 11.61 to 10.11 (as at 12/31/2018), being a drop of -37% in 5 years. This represents the best results ever achieved by the Group. This improvement reinforces all the teams on the effectiveness of the LISI E-HSE program and the employees who implement it on a daily basis.

Protection & prevention, permanent commitments

A priority objective of E-HSE: TF1 < 8

To achieve this, the LISI Group is making progress in two directions. The first one aims to secure all the work tools by working on the compliance of machines, especially those that are most dangerous. The second direction is the development of the Safety Culture Program (SCP), which is dedicated to risk prevention and the development of safety behaviors as part of the overall LISI E-HSE program. This educational tool is based on 18 training modules targeted at group managers. The latter then pass on the prevention messages to the teams in 15-minute sessions.

Nowadays, employee involvement makes it possible to reduce accidents on a regular basis. In 2018, 66% of production sites had a work accident with or without stoppage (TF1) rate of less than 10, which was the intermediate target for 2018.

Responsible development
a general vision

“ LISI aims to reduce its energy consumption by 3% and its water consumption by 4% by 2020. ”

The LISI Group has long been measuring the impact of all its activities on the environment. These assessments help it implement corrective actions to reduce or limit its environmental footprint and set a specific course. LISI aims to reduce its energy consumption by 3% and its water consumption by 4% by 2020. To achieve these objectives, the Group implements the continuous improvement methods of the ISO 14001 international standard for which it is certified. Significant results are achieved each year. They serve as performance measurement points.

Efforts at the Bologne plant

In 2018, the LISI Group consumed 827,668 cubic meters of water, i.e. saving 7.5% in absolute value. As a result of LISI's activity, the ratio between water consumption and produced added value decreased in 1 year from 1.10 m3 / €k (added value) to 1.089 m3 / €k (added value). The refurbishment works carried out on the network of the only site of the Forges de Bologne, in France, made it possible to save 56,000 m3 in one year. The Bologne site is highly energy-consuming. It alone absorbs 11.7% of the energy consumed by the Group. At the heart of the improvement actions, the Forge 2022 project will incorporate best practices in terms of energy saving.

Saint-Ouen-L'Aumône, pilot site

A pioneer in this field, the Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône site has put into practice the recommendations of the ISO 26000 standard, which sets out how companies should behave in terms of social and environmental rules. For example, the site has published a pilot CSR report that outlines the site's contributions and initiatives on these topics: High Environmental Quality building; integration of the site with the groups of ambassador companies of the Cergy-Pontoise territory; co-founding of an inter-company nursery; participation in the local Eco Mobility challenge, etc.
