EDF EWC adopts critical position on health and safety policy

(11 December 2013) Management of the French electricity company EDF presented its health and safety policy to the European Works Council (EWC) 4 December 2013.

In the last three years 61 people died and management and the EWC agree that health and safety is the highest priority.
In practice however management does not value the critical contributions of the workers and their representatives to improve the situation. It leaves out important elements like maintenance and material. The EWC issued its position also criticising the bonus system that encourages managers to hide accidents in their reports and statistics.
