Our Group in video
Our 5 areas of expertise are complementary and allow you to combine safety with performance at all stages of your projects.


We check the reliability of your facilities, equipment, structures, infrastructure and buildings to keep them compliant on their entry into service and during their operation.

Testing and measurements

We carry out tests of all types using simulators reproducing real stresses. We also measure air, water or soil to monitor its quality so you can better manage your risks.

Certification & labelling

We certify your management systems, skills, products or services. We also define labels that comply with a strict reference framework.


We are the leading company in risk management and safety training. Our unique trainer-inspector model allows for 350,000 people to be trained each year, for which they receive a certificate, a diploma which is a real passport for their career.
