and safety, which explores the initiatives taken in 2006. Over and above

the initiatives discussed in the report, other more specific actions were

taken in 2006, p. 84:

• Emergency response and CPR training for all medical staff.

A five-year plan has been launched to train all medical personnel in

emergency medicine and the use of a semi-automatic defibrillator, with a

yearly refresher. Hands-on training sessions were put in place focusing on

reviews of key protocols and role-play. Ongoing training on vaccinations,

audiometrics and emerging health risks has been introduced for medical

staff. The Group has set up a procedure for monitoring employees’ hearing

in conjunction with the health insurance body for the Paris region, in the

aim of improving ambient noise conditions.

• Ergonomics

Advice on improving the ergonomics of workstations has been distributed

to all employees of BNP Paribas SA and is available on the Group’s

intranet portal, alongside information on how to prevent health risks

through appropriate lifestyle choices. Various types of equipment have

been reviewed in order to draw up a list of items and equipment that

could be managed by the occupational medicine department. Workstation

ergonomics are examined at the design stage (for both equipment

and sites) and are enhanced through remedial measures prescribed

by the occupational physicians in the course of their site visits.

950 persons contributed to the blood donation drive.

Employees continued to be able to have access, on a voluntary basis,

to assistance in giving up smoking from a dedicated medical unit.

In late 2006, the Allen Carr method was introduced.
