Health and safety

Safeguarding our people

Our health and safety performance is considered sound and stable. We continue to strengthen our culture through the resilience framework, focusing on attitudes, beliefs and behaviour of our employees. The commitment to and robustness of DNV GL’s health and safety management is particularly important in tough times.

Targets and results

We are working to strengthen our attitudes, beliefs and behaviour, and striving to learn from experience and improve our way of working accordingly. This is to ensure that we safeguard our people and maintain a healthy and resilient workforce.

Our purpose since 1864 has been to safeguard life, property and the environment. We do this through the services we provide and the way we operate. The backbone of our occupational health and safety management system is that all employees feel empowered to say ‘No’ when they consider a situation to be unsafe.

Our health and safety performance in 2017 is considered sound and stable, with slight improvements in the injury rate, occupational disease rate, lost day rate and sickness absentee rate. The results are comparable with those of our peers; however, we are continuously attempting to improve. We have revised our goal from being the benchmark of our industries to striving for zero harm to people.
