Health and safety

Everyone has the right to be safe at work. We will never accept that people get hurt when working for us and our long-term goal is zero accidents. Our employees are our most valuable resource and health and safety is our most important sustainability area.

Since 2015, Eltel has worked systematically to reduce the number of accidents by promoting a culture of health and safety and introducing new policies and procedures.

Health and safety policies

Eltel has a comprehensive Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Policy and subcontractors shall always be part of Eltel’s health and safety plans. Eltel complies with OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001 standards and all our subsidiaries also comply. Norway is not yet certified but expects to be in 2020.

Proper equipment

To prevent accidents, we need to plan carefully and ensure that everyone uses the proper protective equipment. This year Eltel launched a new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Policy to ensure that all markets use the same standard. The policy is based on existing best practice from all markets.

Safety culture

Apart from policies and equipment, safety is a state of mind. To foster a culture where safety is a primary concern among our employees and subcontractors, managers conduct regular safety walks and we publish internal safety bulletins. All knowledge gained from safety walks and incidents is logged in our safety and quality reporting system. The data is used to identify risks in order to strengthen our structures and our preventive work.
