This accomplishment is a valuable testament to the company’s values and positions ENGIE Solutions as an industry trailblazer in employee health, safety and wellbeing.
The 20 million person-hours without a lost time incident marks a new milestone by ENGIE Solutions, surpassing the previous mark of 10 million lost time incident-free work hours achieved in 2020.
