Our assets

A global vision of risk management

Double independent expertise

Novallia offers a service that combines expertise in occupational health and safety (regulations and operations) with solid skills in work psychology. Our expert, with a doctorate in work psychology, is specialized in the prevention of psychosocial risks.


The accompaniment, consisting of a diagnosis and an action plan, is precisely adapted to the company in order to guarantee both the well-being of the employees and the company's objectives.


Independence is an important value for our teams. We emphasize it in all our services, and even more so in the case of psychosocial risks.
Using an expert from outside the company allows you to guarantee the confidentiality, impartiality and authenticity of the diagnosis and recommendations for preventing psychosocial risks.

Audits and diagnostics

Due to constant innovation and organizational changes, Psychosocial Risks (PSR) have been developing increasingly within organizations. Stress, conflicts, harassment, they take many forms and can affect the motivation and health of your employees and significantly increase the costs of your organization.

Calling on Novallia for a PSR audit

Novallia offers a PSR diagnosis in several steps.
First, we gather the stakeholders and conduct an analysis of the current situation using the documents provided by the company and the information listed.
We set upindividual and/or group interviews (focus group) in order to confirm the development axis of the targeted problem(s).
We use scientific quantitative tools adapted to the company in order to objectify the perceptions of the organization and we analyze these tools using statistical software.
We can also analyze tools that have already been put in place by the organization toanalyze the social climate.

Finally, based on the results, we propose an action plan to be implemented within the organization and a follow-up of the effectiveness of the adopted measures. Process renewal audits and/or support in the implementation of the action plan are also proposed in our services.
