Delivering health and safety
Health, safety and sustainable development are all interconnected. We cannot imagine a brighter future without providing a safe environment for everyone at the company. We are committed to making safety a priority for our sports users and our teammates.
Countries and local players have access to tools they can use to verify that each teammate experiences safe working conditions and to make improvements when necessary.
In every one of our stores, warehouses and head offices in France, health and safety are monitored by QVT Specialists and safety captains who apply safety guidelines as dictated by their local needs and regulations.
In addition to the physical health and safety rules for workstations, Decathlon also recognises the psychosocial risks related to workplace well-being. Efforts in this area can help reduce stress, absenteeism, workplace accidents, turnover and more.
In 2017, 94% of our teammates felt safe in their work environment and 80% said that they play their sport regularly, which is a source of health and well-being.
