Health & Safety

Q-Park promotes the health and safety of customers and employees. We achieve this mainly by training our employees, equipping them for their work, and by creating a safe and healthy working environment.

Every year, we receive millions of visitors in our parking facilities at all hours of the day. Unfortunately, it is inevitable that our employees will encounter aggressive or inappropriate behaviour. We do everything we can to ensure their well-being.

  • We offer conflict management training.
  • We have CCTV monitoring.
  • Our Parking Attendants who issue control fees have a ‘direct contact’ button on their GSM.

We consider the well-being of our employees to be a key sustainability issue. For this reason, we now report quarterly on the number of incidents involving employees as well as the resulting lost days.
