Eiffage Route Méditerranée and Eiffage Route Ile de France / Centre won awards at the Safety Together (Prévention Ensemble) competition organized by the Idrrim, the OPPBTP and the Usirf. Both entities were awarded a trophy in the "Emissions" category.
Eiffage Route Méditerranée, together with the Société Marseillaise Prado Carénage and Carsat Sud-Est, won their award for the adoption of safety measures to protect against professional exposure to bitumen fumes on a site for the deployment of asphalt coating in a semi-closed system.
Eiffage Route Ile de France / Centre, in association with the Yvelines departmental authority, Ile de France Roads Interdepartmental Division, Cramif and Grenoble University Hospital Centre, were rewarded for proposing alternative technical solutions setting a number of variables in site configurations (bitumen, aggregate and recycled asphalt aggregate origin, asphalt coating formulae, material used and team operating on the site). These technical solutions were put forward during work on two projects carried out over two consecutive years.
Both initiatives were supported by the Infrastructure Branch's Safety Division.
