Prize for health promotion


Prize for health promotion - Implenia receives the "Grand Prix Européen Santé
et Entreprise 2012" from the European Association for Health Promotion (AEPS)

Dietlikon, 14 December 2012 - At a conference organized by the European
Association for Health Promotion (AEPS), Luxembourg's health minister Mars di
Bartolomeo awarded Implenia a "Grand Prix Européen Santé et Entreprise 2012"
in recognition of its work on health and safety. The jury were particularly
impressed by the "Talk about alcohol at work?" project, which won the award in
the "Responsabilité Sociétale de l'Entreprise" (Business Social
Responsibility) category.

Implenia works hard on several different fronts to protect its employees'
health and to prevent accidents at work. Such accidents can be caused by many
things, one of which is alcohol. The aim of "Talk about alcohol at work?" is
to remove the taboos surrounding the subject and to educate employees where
necessary. Implenia carried out the project in close collaboration with health
consultancy PMSE SA (Prévention et maintien de la santé en enterprise) in
French-speaking Switzerland as a pilot region. The plan is to roll the project
out to the rest of Switzerland in 2013. For further information about health
and safety at work, please see Implenia's first Sustainability Report, which
was published in September 2012.
