With my QSE responsibilities, I want to reduce environmental impact, and improve safety levels

From prevention to quality assurance:

The QSE manager must :


  • Ensure compliance with regulatory obligations relating to the circular economy and environmental protection.
  • Guarantee the safety of personnel on site and on the road to the destination point.
  • To reconcile quality requirements with time and cost optimisation objectives.
  • To propose solutions to anticipate risks and reduce their impact.

Just think about it:

830 million tonnes per year!

the amount of construction and demolition waste produced in the EU

120 million tonnes of CO2

produced by the construction sector in France every year


of construction waste recycled, target set by the EU

2 minutes

the frequency of accidents on all construction sites in France in 2019

3 years

the minimum conservation period for the regulatory database of waste flows

Challenges for the QSE manager:

The QSE manager must protect the environment

Traceability of waste and excavated materials:

  • Prevent illegal dumping
  • Manage the regulatory database that is auditable for at least 3 years

Reduce the environmental impact:

  • Measure and reduce the CO2 impact of the activity
  • Manage purchases and resources and implement eco-actions

Optimisation and recovery of materials:

  • Send the right product, to the right place, at the right time, and at the best cost for optimal recovery

“When performance is measured and targets are set, people are naturally much more motivated to achieve them.”

“The challenge is for people to integrate safety systematically into everything they do. For me, it is the priority of people before production.”
