Safety is a priority for us. Therefore, we work continuously to increase awareness and commitment to safety issues.
Our vision is concise: "A Stena without accidents". It is the basis of our systematic safety work. We believe that all accidents are avoidable through risk analysis, preventive measures and working safely together. Safe working environments avoid costly downtime through accidents and lead to efficient and consistent production of high quality.
A major part of our safety work is ongoing dialogues with customers, suppliers and authorities about how we can work more safely together. Security is not just important for us at Stena Metall. We require all our subcontractors to undergo safety training. We also provide customers with safety consulting, training in handling dangerous goods and hazardous waste. These safety services are an integral part of what we offer our customers.
One way we ensure high-level safety is through so-called safety walks. These tours are made at all of our 200 facilities and follow a standardized method. They are always carried out with someone who knows the factory area well. Good safety practices are praised and shortcomings are addressed directly in discussions about how to make improvements. All observations and suggestions for improvement are documented and submitted to the safety manager. During 2015/2016, 11,000 safety walks were carried out at our facilities.
