EDF's major operating divisions in France, Customers and Generation, are working with employee representatives to launch initiatives aimed at improving quality of life in the workplace and minimizing psychological risks and occupational hazards.
As just one example of our strict standards, the implementation of EDF's occupational safety and workplace health policy in France is audited by a national committee for direction and monitoring.
