In order to achieve the ambition of zero accidents and no work-related ill-health, all contractors and subcontractors working at Vattenfall's plants and facilities receive necessary health and safety information. The content and the extent of instructions and training depend on the circumstances.
Preventive health and safety measures cover significant hazards related to our facilities, plants and processes, and are adapted to the national legal requirements of the specific plant or facility. Vattenfall's health and safety policy states that the personnel of contractors shall be treated in the same way as our own employees with respect to health and safety issues.
Construction projects contain particular health and safety risks. In order to maintain a safe work environment and proper behaviour we have set up special procedures. On all new construction projects:
- All contractors get initial information and induction.
- Training programmes are specifically designed for each construction site.
- All contractors working at the site need to have a health and safety management system.
