The level of occupational safety improved noticeably in 2018. The credit for this goes to all the people who work in Fingrid’s investments and maintenance. We clearly achieved the intermediate target set for lost-time injury frequency in 2018, and we can also be satisfied with this result.
The biggest safety risks in Fingrid’s operations are related to physical work that is mainly performed by main and subcontractors specialised in that field. Occupational safety has always been considered a priority, and is taken into account in the contract agreements.
Fingrid is building an occupational safety culture in cooperation with its service providers. Proactive occupational safety leads to better work quality in addition to promoting business and a positive employer image. The suppliers’ occupational safety group established by Fingrid brings together service providers to develop new and good occupational practices in collaboration with the client.
