Safety Road Map

A tool has been developed to support development of safety in the organization, the Skanska Safety Road Map. It was launched in 2011 to inspire and support management teams across Skanska to meet their safety milestones. Work include annual reviews on performance and progress. In 2018 it was extended with a matrix for Health and Well-being.

The Safety Road Map focuses on six key areas of development:

  1. Safety Culture
  2. Improving safety Competency through development and education programs
  3. Communication of safety issues throughout Skanska
  4. Implementing Controls through management systems
  5. Leadership and engagement with our Contractors
  6. Health and Well-being across Skanska
