Health and safety in MT Højgaard

We insist on a safe working environment

A safe working environment is important to our employees as well as business. Therefore health and safety is a top priority in our daily work. We focus on and believe that a good working relationship can create a safe working environment. All employees are obliged to take the responsibility for taking care of themselves and each other so we all can come home safely every day.

We have a vision of zero accidents. We work systematically to improve safety at our construction sites. Our specific working environment objective is to maintain an industrial accident frequency of less than 5 for all employees. By the end of 2015 the industrial accident frequency was 4.7.

External certification agency

Because of the importance of a safe working environment, we have an external certification agency to carry out working environment certification. 

It means that we commit ourselves to constantly improving our working environment. We are checked every six months by DNV, which ensures that we have achieved the necessary improvement.
