R OCCUPATIONAL RISKMANAGEMENT Occupational risk management is assessed on the basis of eight prevention criteria according to the following Occupational Health & Safety reporting process: W promoting the Prevention Charter; W managing occupational health and safety; W ensuring staff representation on health and safety committees; W assessing occupational risk; W managing emergencies; W providing health and safety training; W providing first-aid and fire-prevention training; W preventing risks in situations where independent companies are working on site. Subsidiaries must fulfill at least six of the eight of the above-listed criteria in order to claim a level of implementation deemed to be satisfactory. 2014-2018 Group priority To extend and maintain an occupational risk management plan covering 90% of the Group’s workforce. Key performance indicator : the percentage of employees covered by the occupational risk management plan based on the key principles To ensure that 90% of the Group’s workforce are covered by the occupational risk management plan for the entire duration of the roadmap. 2018 achievements: At the end of 2018, the occupational risk management plan covered 98% of the workforce included in the Occupational Health & Safety report, slightly higher than the target set at the end of 2018. These results are mainly due to close supervision of Group entities, their increased engagement with CSR, and reliability of the associated actions and indicators. of ILO-OSH 2001. Annual targets:

Depending on the country and size of the sites, occupational health and safety management is the responsibility of HR or another designated department. Many countries have health and safety committees (employee representative bodies) on the initiative of Senior Management in each country and in accordance with local laws. Legrand is gradually broadening this principle of employee representation to countries where it is not required under local law. Employees and their representatives belonging to these committees have the time and resources to play an active role in their entity’s health and safety processes and initiatives, specifically through discussion on all relevant aspects of occupational health and safety, including emergency measures. Occupational risk assessment (periodic analysis of hazardous situations and levels of risk) enables appropriate and effective prevention measures to be established. In 2018, 74% of employees (including production, administrative and logistics workers) underwent a formal risk assessment, either using tools specific to the entity in question, or using a shared tool offered by the Group and tailored to its line of business. Emergency management enables potential accidents and emergency situations to be identified and the risks that result from them to be prevented, as well as the implementation of appropriate measures to safeguard people and property (information, training, coordination, communication with the relevant authorities, local responders and emergency services, first aid and medical assistance, fire-fighting and evacuation methods, and so on). Health and safety training concerns the prevention of risks in the workplace. It may be supplemented by first-aid and fire-prevention training . This training improves staff preparedness against risks to their health and safety, particularly by identifying hazardous situations, assessing risk levels and implementing measures to prevent risk, safeguard people and property, and respond to emergencies. More than 132,000 hours of training were devoted to these subjects in 2018. Formal and procedures have been implemented and are updated to ensure that risks are prevented when independent companies are working on site (communication, coordination, information, training, and supervision before and during the work). Workplace health and safety criteria are included in subcontractor evaluation and selection procedures. Any work-related accidents on site involving contractors’ workers are recorded.
