Health and Safety

Construction is an industry with risk of injuries and long-term health hazards. Our focus remains on eliminating risks by thoroughly training our people, comprehensively planning our projects and operating according to our industry-leading health and 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 health and safety of each person connected with our projects. Consequently, we strive to foster an environment in which everyone takes responsibility for their own health and safety, as well as the health and safety of those around them.

Health and Safety permeates all that we do. We consider health and 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 health and safety in all its home markets.
