The SME MD Group, a small public works company, has an ambitious and effective risk prevention policy. Exposed to the risks traditionally encountered in the construction industry - manual handling, falls from height, hand tools - it involves all its staff in the discussions and implements solutions that are as close as possible to the needs of the field. The loading and unloading of skips is facilitated by a walkway that provides easy access to the inside of the truck platform. A hoist is also available.

La PME de travaux publics Groupe MD mène une politique de prévention des risques ambitieuse et efficace. Exposée aux risques traditionnellement rencontrés dans le BTP – manutentions manuelles, chutes de hauteur, outillage à main –, elle associe tout son personnel aux réflexions et met en œuvre des solutions au plus près des besoins du terrain. Le chargement et le déchargement des bennes sont facilités par une passerelle qui permet d’accéder facilement à l’intérieur de la plate-forme du camion. Un palan est aussi à disposition
