A safe and healthy workplace

We know that establishing and operating renewable energy infrastructure can be dangerous work that demands the highest health and safety standards. Caring for people is fundamental to our culture, and we work continuously towards our goal of zero injuries.

A safe and healthy work environment is a precondition for us wherever we are in the world, whether we are working on Norwegian hydropower plants, or Indian solar projects. We are committed to preventing incidents and promoting a workplace without injury or harm to our employees, business partners and local stakeholders.

Our goal is that everyone should return home safely from work for Statkraft, and that those impacted by our operations should be safeguarded. We constantly work to improve and expand our internal and external initiatives related to health and safety.

We believe a safe working environment is a matter of choice, not chance

Life Saving Rules

Certain activities account for the majority of the serious incidents in our work. To reduce the risk of serious injuries and fatalities, we have implemented clear safety rules for specific high-risk activities. In addition to the activity specific rules, we use the Safe work basics that apply to many different situations in our daily lives.
