Sandvik highlights safety culture

Most Sandvik customers operate in hazardous environments, such as mines, where the safety requirements are extremely high.

All of these industries place a high priority on the safety of their employees and their products. “You can do everything right for 999 days, but if you have one serious injury on the next day, all the injury free days will be forgotten,” says Stuart Evans, Global Head of Environment, Health and Safety (EHS), Sandvik Group.

“The safety of people is of course what matters the most, but a good safety performance is also good for marketplace credibility and for strengthening your brand.”

Having a strong safety culture is an important part of the Sandvik strategy, both in the company’s own production and when providing equipment or services to customers.

“We had a situation where a Sandvik technician from Italy found a number of safety issues at a customer site in Ethiopia on his first visit,” says Peter Lange, Global EHS Manager at Sandvik Construction. “After a written nonconformity report, the customer quickly provided new routines for a safer crushing plant. The technician could then go back and start maintenance activity under safe conditions.”
