Health and safety

Ensuring that our employees return home safely every day is our top priority.

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.

Safety culture

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.
