Health at work

Workplace health promotion is a high priority for our company and a core element of our HSE management system.

We have taken a raft of measures designed to protect and enhance employees’ physical and psychological wellbeing under the banner of “Be healthy together”.

These include:

  • Access to regular consultations with the occupational health service provider
    The organisation focuses on providing the employer and employees with specialist, detailed advice on all matters related to occupational health.
  • (Workplace) mental health consultation and support
    This includes evaluation of emotional stress in the workplace, as well as personal (occupational) psychological support for employees.
  • Internal health promotion programme
    This company health programme is aimed at creating incentives to participate in health promotion activities. Employees can choose between a wide variety of different services each year, with a focus on exercise, healthy eating and the working environment.

Thinking about the end in everything you do – that is sustainability.
