Health and safety
At Eltel, safety is not just about personal protective equipment, incident reports and adjusting to the current pandemic challenge – it is a mindset that we choose to adopt every day.
We work hard to foster a culture in which safety is a primary concern among our employees and subcontractors. The proactive work to prevent and reduce the number of workplace injuries and accidents and to promote health and well-being has continued since 2015.
Risk analysis, the proper equipment, the right training and the correct information are a prerequisite for all assignments. The reporting and follow-up of risk observations, incidents and accidents has been developed during the year and the analysis of near misses and potential incidents has provided valuable insights into our preventive safety work.
Follow-up dialogue with employees who are ill and rehabilitation support for employees on long-term sick leave are also important measures for reducing absence due to illness.
Health and safety risks
Eltel has clearly defined the health and safety risks for our people. High-risk activities related to day-to-day operations include electrical safety, working at height, managing ageing infrastructure, and road safety. Road safety is a particularly important area for Eltel as teams spend a lot of time on the road driving from site to site. Eltel is constantly seeking to identify and implement more modern and safer solutions and processes to reduce risk.
