Bollé Safety's advance in design makes a true difference and benefits each employee.

The VINCI group has a very active health and safety policy. You are the Vinci Construction Earthworks health and safety department manager. Why did you choose Bollé Safety glasses?

E.M.: Several entities in the Vinci group had already tested and adopted Bollé safety models. I based my choice on their feedback and to remain coherent with group decisions. Furthermore, the members of the company health and safety commission approved the quality of the products and confirmed our choice. Even though wearing safety glasses has become mandatory on our sites since the 1st July 2013, it has not yet become a reflex. Every week, and on all our work sites, we hold a ¼ hour "safety" meeting to talk about risks. The challenge we face is to convince our employees to protect themselves.

 

Have you seen any real change in users' behaviour since you have been offering Bollé Safety models?

E.M.: In June we issued the smoked, metal CONTOUR model to all our employees. This summer our employees took to wearing this smoked version immediately: "it went down very smoothly!". Their style makes you want to wear them, and the figures show true effectiveness as no eye related accidents were reported during the second half of the year. Beyond the product quality, Bollé Safety's advance in design makes a true difference and benefits each employee.
