Description

The Grand Paris Express construction sites are also an opportunity for innovation, on a large and smaller scale, to improve working conditions. This is illustrated by the first use of a vertical tunnel boring machine in France, and by a drilling tool designed to reduce workers' exposure to vibrations and dust.

Les chantiers du Grand Paris Express sont aussi l’occasion d’innovations, à grande et à plus petite échelle, pour améliorer les conditions de travail. Illustration avec la première utilisation d’un tunnelier vertical en France, et avec un outil de percement aménagé pour réduire l’exposition des compagnons aux vibrations et aux poussières
