Our policy :
Health & Safety, the foundations of Giliss Engineering
Men and women are the wealth of Giliss Engineering, and preserving their health and safety is its priority.

Since it was founded in the Congo, Giliss Engineering has never ceased its commitment to integrating safety at all levels. Health and safety are not just principles and standards, they are the foundations that guide and motivate us on a daily basis. It is a value that must be shared by everyone, at every level (employees, partners, subcontractors, customers, etc.).

This proactive contribution is necessary and an integral part of our processes. It is based on 3 pillars that contribute to Giliss Engineering’s overall performance:

  • A technical pillar
  • A management system pillar
  • An organisational pillar

A technical pillar

OHS results cannot be achieved without in-depth action on the quality of technical systems (materials, tools, safety equipment) and their maintenance. These systems need to be combined with the knowledge of specialists and those working in the field.

A management system pillar

The management system aims to improve occupational health and safety (OHS) performance by combining prevention policy, resources and personnel in a continuous improvement process.

An organisational pillar

Each Giliss Engineering department contributes to improving the system. This calls on all available resources, coordinated by the experience of the industrial world via the QHSE manager and the operational manager of each division concerned.

Health & Safety, a daily approach

Safety is a prerequisite for our activities. Without it, we cannot operate. The reliability and longevity of our company depend on it. Because of the diversity of our businesses and locations, our OHS actions are many and varied.
Risk assessment
Assessing occupational risks involves identifying the risks to which employees are exposed, with a view to implementing appropriate preventive measures covering technical, human and organisational aspects. It is the initial stage in any occupational health and safety prevention initiative. To anticipate risks effectively, we want all our on-site services to be subject to a risk analysis beforehand.
In order to capitalise on the experience of our employees, we carry out feedback at the end of our assignments, analysing events and highlighting positive points and areas for improvement in order to highlight practices and develop our HSE culture. This day-to-day approach also involves our membership of and participation in associations and working groups promoting health and safety in the workplace, in compliance with the ISO 45001 standard.

Health & Safety, a daily approach

Event analysis

We do not regard the occurrence of an event as inevitable, but rather as an opportunity for improvement. That's why we have set up a system for analysing these events in order to determine the root causes and associated preventive actions that will contribute to improving our system.

Ongoing communication

The safety culture must be permanent. It is organised throughout the year around regular exchanges with staff and the organisation of one-off events that illustrate our desire to increase staff involvement and awareness of safety issues. One day a year, we focus on a specific theme, the aim of which is to provide a memorable but fun experience.

Security with our customers

The safety of our staff is our priority, but we also have a broader role to play in the assignments entrusted to us by our customers. We have to be aware of and comply with their own safety requirements, with a particular focus on classified industrial sites, but we also have to provide them with our expertise in certain phases of our assignments and sometimes supervise the safety actions of other parties involved in the assignments, particularly in the various stages of the construction of technical installations. Safety has to be global, and requires synergy between the various players.

We're always on the lookout for new talent
