We are ever so attentive to ensure their safety at the workplace, to provide them with training and career advancement opportunities and to develop constructive social relations. Aware of its responsibility towards its employees and partners, SPIE brings its commitment to health and safety to bear in each of its actions, thereby developing a prevention culture at all levels. A reference on the matter, the Group has made “zero accident” a concrete objective and a real performance lever.
SPIE develops a prevention culture at all levels, with deliberately more stringent safety prevention standards than the regulations in force. With occupational accident rates twice as low as the average in the sector for the entire Group, SPIE is today the leader in that sector on safety and is pursuing its objective of “zero accident.” The safety standards in force in the Group are complied with by all its subcontractors also.
SPIE Belgium has in particular developed the Safety Floor Stone, a floor covering in the form of a slab to secure openings on the floor of construction sites.
In 2019, SPIE Belgium was elected ‘Top Employer’ for the twelfth time. SPIE stands out through its recruitment and integration procedures for new employees, and its employer brand and ongoing training efforts. SPIE Belgium wanted to put the emphasis on four lines of work among all the aspects on which the company was assessed:
88% of SPIE employees in Europe undergo training every year.

More than one woman out of three will be the victim of violence from her partner in the course of her life. In this context, the CEASE project supports pioneering companies to become an environment of stability and support for persons who are victims of domestic and family violence.
As signatory of the CEASE charter, we undertake to implement awareness raising sessions and to train relay people in the company.
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
