In the catering business,the risks of accidents (TA) and diseases (PD) are significant, resulting inhigh absenteeism for Autogrill. Faced with this problem, the Italian firm Autogrillhas called on its French sites for an improvement process.

Given positive results, the ERGOS (Ensemblepour Développer la qualité de vie au travail/Together for Developing Quality ofwork life) approach will be extended to the entire network:

- Listen to employees about the risks to theirbusiness
