The protection and safety of workers is a fundamental right. The proliferation of regulations and the technological complexity of certain sectors place training at the heart of corporate social responsibility and performance.
VIVALIANS is a training and consultancy organization specialized in the prevention of risks to the safety of persons and goods. With 5 training centers in Franceequipped with technical platforms and educational platforms, over 114,000 hours of training for over 30,000 trained trainees per year, VIVALIANS is a major player in this dynamic market. The entry into the capital in December 2021 of Entrepreneur Invest reinforces this positioning at the service of private and public companies, and in particular in nuclear formations in full development. Meeting with Stéphane Pinto, manager of VIVALIANS.
Training in the safety of people and goods: limitation or opportunity?
Employee safety is central to business operations. This fundamental right is constantly confronted with the rapid evolution of technologies, the specificities of certain sectors, the integration of new recruits into the teams.
Through the quality of its training, VIVALIANS is committed to a mission to reduce workers’ exposure to risk and promote the development of their skills.
Improving the “security culture” in the company also makes it possible to reduce the criminal exposure of managers and support the activity of the company. An accident at work, mistake or professional shortcoming can, of course, call into question the survival of a company that is subject to legal restrictions to carry out its activity.
Beyond any obligation, we see in the field that a mastery of good practices strengthens teams’ confidence, enhances well-being at work, reduces anxiety, and guides teams to develop the company’s operations.
12 areas of expertise at the service of your customers in a multimodal educational approach: how does a training actually work?
VIVALIANS offers companies and individuals, through 12 areas of expertise, on the one hand regulatory training such as gestures and postures, first aid at work, electrical clearance, fire hazard, etc., and on the other hand professional training such as operating machinery (CACES), working in an asbestos environment, nuclear workers, etc. Our training courses are delivered in our training centers or at our customers’ premises, face-to-face, in a virtual classroom or via e-learning.
All these educational methods can be combined to adapt to the constraints of our clients and to provide our trainees with an experience and innovative training that is effective in developing their skills.
VIVALIANS gives an increasingly important place to virtual reality that reinforces the integration of gestures through their repetition “in situation”.
We mainly use this technology for our fire safety training on how to handle connected extinguishers. In addition to immersive learning, virtual reality makes it possible to reduce the ecological impact in the case of fire safety, since the real extinguisher no longer has to be touched
We develop this technology for powering trolleys, nacelles, overhead cranes and electrical passageways.
With the advantage of a technical platform and a school site!
Absolute. Our 5 centers spread across the territory have rooms equipped with the latest technologies for theoretical lessons, as well as technical platforms or school sites to practice learning in real situations. This is an essential contribution to mastering good practices.
Controlling machines, working in an asbestos environment, electrical work, training in rooms that mimic the installations of a nuclear power plant: VIVALIANS trains trainees so that they can be immediately operational.
Nuclear energy, a booming sector: VIVALIANS positions itself as a challenger in the training of nuclear stakeholders
VIVALIANS is one of the few training organizations recognized by EDF to provide joint training to nuclear workers., allowing operators to be allowed to work in nuclear power plants. VIVALIANS is a recognized player in this specific market with a very high demand for these training courses.
Our training courses are divided into two main sectors: maintenance and radiation protection.
Our training center is located near Chinon. The dynamism of our trainers and the quality of our platform that reproduces the installations of a nuclear power plant make VIVALIANS a privileged partner of companies for the training of their employees.
This is an important growth area for VIVALIANS, we plan to open new nuclear training centers in the near future.
The entry into the capital of the management company Entrepreneur Invest reflects both our desire to develop these activities, especially in the nuclear sector, and the strategic interest in SMEs to accentuate their training policy to develop their activities. Indeed, the philosophy of Entrepreneur Invest is to support companies in their strategic choices necessary for their development. And training is at the heart of it.
