The Synerzip-LH association

In Le Havre , the Synerzip-LH association is responsible for ensuring the governance of safety in the area and supporting companies in implementing appropriate measures. To do this, the Le Havre association offers companies a day dedicated to the development of a sheltering plan (PMA-AE).

These training sessions take place in the premises of the LauguiConcept security space , in the heart of the industrial port area of Le Havre. This space was created with the aim of becoming a space for discussion on the themes of occupational safety. Many training courses are provided on these topics. It is therefore quite natural that manufacturers, local authorities and partners can meet there to discuss these subjects.

The Synerzip-LH association also offers “crisis management” training sessions enabling business leaders to acquire useful knowledge for managing a major event.
