This makes safety a priority area for Vattenfall. It is also one of our three core values, which means that safety is a guiding principle in the day-to-day operations.
We are committed to protecting and promoting the H&S of everybody working for Vattenfall. It is our responsibility to ensure that no one is injured or falls ill as a result of our activities and behaviour. We believe that all occupational illness and injuries are preventable and zero work-related ill-health and zero accidents is our ambition.
In order to achieve our targets and long term ambitions we have set an H&S strategy with four strategic focus areas:
- Further development of leadership, culture and awareness
- Clear and consistent H&S communication
- Effective use of H&S management systems
- Development and implementation of H&S standards
- Short term 2016 a Lost-time injury frequency (LTIF) target of 2.1 for own employees.
- Mid term 2020 a Lost-time injury frequency (LTIF) target of 1.25 for own employees
- Long-term goal of zero accidents in the workplace, no workplace-related illnesses, and that all employees will have a safe, healthy and inspiring work environment.
Challenges we have
It will be a challenge to continue to focus on H&S among cost-cutting and reorganisation measure.
