Solstad never compromise on safety. As one of our core values, safety is front of mind for all employees at all times. We have a robust safety culture onboard all vessels with the aim of delivering incident free operations.
Solstad Incident Free Operations
SIFO is about creating an organizational culture that is committed to eliminating all incidents and injuries to our workers.
In SIFO – we do not accept injuries or incidents as “part of doing business”.
It is a way of thinking that avoids incidents and injuries by making safety the highest priority on both a personal and organizational level.
We are determined to foster a working culture where Safety is our main priority in every-thing we do.
Health and safety
A vital part in order to understand and improve safety is to focus on preventative measures to avoid injuries and operational accidents or interruptions. In 2019, approximately 36.000 HSE reports were recorded and processed at different levels in the organization. Conclusions from analysis are used as basis for further preventative measures to avoid future incident.
Overall, the Company had three work-related lost-time injuries that provide an H-factor (number of injuries per 1 million hours worked) of 0.21 for 2019 (0.56 in 2018). The goal of no lost-time injuries is maintained for 2020, and the Company focuses on the evaluation, facilitation, planning and preventative work to avoid all kinds of personnel-related injuries and incidents with adverse effect on the environment.
To improve the pro-active attitude and continue to build a working culture where safety is a natural part of what we are doing – the company have initiated a campaign named “Solstad Incident Free Operations”. SIFO is the company’s key safety campaign.
