Safety

Around the world the construction industry is recognized as being one of the most hazardous industries in which to work. The challenge is to conduct operations without harm to people directly and indirectly involved with its activities.

In 2011, Skanska began a strategic plan that aims to deliver a consistent zero fatality performance and a global lost time accident rate of < 1.0 per million man hours worked by 2015.

To achieve this, we adopted rigorous safety standards that  go beyond the legal minimum, deliver safety training and education to both employees and contractors, incorporate safety into the production process to avoid conflicting priorities and work with others.
