See all news
For the second successive year, ARMOR has held a week entirely dedicated to health, safety and the environment. Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, USA and Canada: more than 200 employees from five countries in America mobilised their forces for this latest edition of Safety Week.

The week was punctuated with workshops, entertaining events, conferences and the exchange of good practices. Consultations with doctors, dentists and opticians were offered to all employees. Presentations by dieticians and nutritionists created a forum for discussing healthy eating and to promote the benefits of regular physical activity. An awareness session was also held on musculo-skeletal disorders (MSDs).

The week also provided the opportunity to raise environmental awareness among employees through training modules, with combating climate change and recycling being the two main issues covered.

Held every year, this week is designed to raise employee awareness of subjects relating to occupational health and safety and to draw attention to particularly pressing environmental concerns.
