A safe workplace
Coor has a zero tolerance approach to accidents at work and focuses closely on health and safety. We have a vision of zero personal injuries at work. No one who works at Coor should be at risk of injury. We deliver a large volume of services in different environments, which means that the risks vary and that our HSEQ work needs to be adapted to suit the conditions of the various workplaces. In order to ensure a high level of risk and safety awareness throughout our operations, Coor has implemented a group-wide safety platform for its employees, including a shared attitude:
- Think before acting: We always carry out a risk assessment before starting an assignment.
- Protect yourself: We always use the available protective clothing and equipment.
- Report incidents: We always report risk observations, incidents, personal injury and unsafe behavior.
- Remind each other: We remind each other about the importance of focusing on safety in our day-to-day work.
How we work with safety
At Coor, our leaders work on the basis of four shared focus areas that help us achieve our vision of zero injuries.
Leadership and behavior
At Coor, we focus closely on preventing risks and creating a safe working environment.
Organization and network
Internal HSEQ organization with dedicated resources, ensuring knowledge sharing and exchange of best practice between all Coor operations.
Follow-up and analysis
We follow up and analyze reporting at all levels.
Clear processes and instructions
Clear processes and instructions for all training and safe working practices.
Reporting is one of the cornerstones of our safety work. Reporting and investigating personal injuries, near misses and risk observations are key components of managing occupational health and safety. Coor uses the US OSHA* classifications and definitions as a guideline. *US OSHA: US Occupational Safety and Health Administration
All employees should be able to work in a good and safe environment. Coor’s health and safety activities are based on identified risks as well as general legal requirements, and cover risks linked to the physical as well as psychosocial work environment.
Whistle blower portal
Coor’s whistle blower portal is a group-wide online service where employees can anonymously report suspected breaches of Coor’s Code of Conduct. The portal is maintained by an external provider,and is available in all the Nordic languages as well as English, Polish, German, Dutch, Estonian, French and Hungarian. Reports submitted through the portal are encrypted and sent anonymously to Coor’s legal department for investigation.
Parties not employed by Coor, such as customers or suppliers, are also able to report suspected breaches of the Code of Conduct.
