Already in 2015, the Executive Board and the Works Council signed the PORR Safety Charter, thereby committing to proactive hazard prevention and health promotion. With “Vision Zero”, the frequency of incidents at PORR should be reduced to fewer than ten accidents per million hours worked. This should be achieved through checks, training, and a reporting system for near misses and hazardous situations.
Our agreements and guidelines for occupational safety are laid out in both our Safety Guide and in our Code of Conduct. Every PORRian thereby pledges, from their very first day at work, to uphold our regulations for quality and safety. Focal points explored once a quarter ensure that the importance of occupational safety is uppermost in everyone’s minds. For example, the “Safety Walk” has become established as a useful instrument for preventing accidents – the walk is a safety check conducted by our management when visiting construction sites.
