Fingrid had a busy year in 2022. It was also a good year in terms of occupational safety, although less so for global situation.
We nudged the lost-time injury frequency further down, even though the total amount of work was huge. In autumn 2022, the injury frequency even dipped below five at the best times.
The goal must be exactly zero accidents.
Naturally, this is still not good enough: every accident is one too many, and we must aim for exactly zero accidents. We are making promising advances towards this target, and years of long-term work seem to be paying off.
The decrease in the injury frequency is thanks to a huge amount of preventive occupational safety work. This is reflected in changing attitudes, as well as in the metrics. The number of safety toolbox talks held, safety observations made, and work risk assessments carried out in 2022 have been incredible.
However, we now need to set our sights on the year ahead and the opportunities it will bring.
This year, we are encouraging personnel to consider safety as a part of their day-to-day activities at work and in their leisure time. We are continuing our efforts to jointly develop a safety culture based on dialogue – this is my everyday job and also yours and all of ours!
All our normal services will be available to you again this year: we offer various forms of on-site training, briefings, webinars, and specialist support.
There are plenty of interesting things to come, so stay tuned!
