Occupational safety and environment
The goal of Lemminkäinen’s occupational safety measures is to create a safe working environment for all employees. Lemminkäinen is committed to the shared occupational safety principles of the Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries RT, which aims to accelerate the construction industry’s progress towards the zero-accident target.
The theme for 2013 was occupational safety, and during the year Lemminkäinen introduced obligatory weekly meetings at construction sites, among other measures. Particular attention was also paid to the use of protective equipment.
Lemminkäinen seeks to minimise any environmental impact of its operations by using natural resources sparingly and by generating as little waste as possible. The company also offers its customers products and services that enable them to reduce their own environmental footprint.
At the Group level, Lemminkäinen measures energy consumption figures and the environmental impact of its production facilities in Finland. Each business segment monitors the indicators relevant to their industry.
More detailed information on Lemminkäinen’s occupational safety and environmental issues are presented in the company’s Annual Report and on its website.
