Construction remains one of the most hazardous industries in Skanska’s home markets, so we focus on eliminating risks by thoroughly training our people, comprehensively planning our projects and operating according to our industry-leading safety procedures and policies. Our culture of caring is also central to our goal of no one being injured on or around our workplaces.

We truly care for the safety of each and every person connected with our projects. Consequently, we strive to foster an environment in which everyone takes responsibility for their own safety, as well as the safety of those around them.

Safety permeates all that we do. We consider safety when selecting projects and when choosing supply chain partners. When projects are being planned and designed, we look for ways to eliminate risks. Every day, nothing is more important than living our value of Care for Life.


Skanska is committed to be the leader in construction safety in all its home markets.
