The law on the duty of care introduces obligations for large French companies. Four years after the Bangladesh disaster, the Duty of Care Act has been published. It requires the prevention of serious violations of human rights, fundamental freedoms, human health and safety and the environment. This law applies directly to French companies and their subsidiaries with more than 5,000 employees, or foreign companies with more than 10,000 employees, i.e. more than 200 companies in France.
"The law of 27 March 2017 on the duty of care requires the prevention of serious violations of human rights, fundamental freedoms, health and safety of persons."
"My role is to act as the interface between our design office and all our production workshops, from styling to the industrialization of our collections. Guarantor of the stylistic and technical conformity of our productions, operational excellence and ethics are at the heart of my mission."
"At our plant in Madagascar, our industrial organization is based on optimizing processes and operator behavior at every stage of the production chain. This approach, inspired by Lean management, involves empowering employees to eliminate all waste, both in terms of materials and useless time."
"This laboratory, hosted on our Villefranche/ Saône premises and testing the compliance and performance of our textiles, is a high-performing, state-of-the-art tool, intended to deliver more proactiveness in order to address our customers' and regulation evermore demanding technical and safety requirements effectively."
"In the design office we work together, as specialists, to provide technical know-how, experience in assembling and choosing materials, in compliance with changing regulatory requirements. This unusual period has enabled us to move beyond the technical limits of our profession".
"It is much easier to manufacture a cloth mask than make a pilot shirt or assemble an item of workwear, which require millimetric precision. The challenge is first and foremost to show solidarity in order to support the medical teams, local authorities and our staff in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic spreading across Africa."
"The close cooperation between CEPOVETT Group-Epsilon and W.L. Gore & Associates, which owns the GORE-TEX brand, allows us to develop and certify Epsilon Madagascar for the manufacture of protective clothing. The technical products are manufactured to meet the most complex needs and highest expectations of professionals in the field."
“Completion of a prototype is a key project milestone in occupational clothing production. The experience and expertise of our technical teams ensure that we can optimise workshop output in the shortest time. We are the guarantors of the whole industrialisation process thanks to our close partnerships with manufacturers, who are involved right from the start of a project and throughout the prototype development process until delivery.”
