Our global Just Care program was established in 2005 to underscore the responsibility of every employee in protecting health and safety. In our industry, certain types of work can account for many of the serious incidents. As a result, we launched Just Rules, a mandatory program for all employees that focuses on safety, preventing injuries and saving lives.
We have also implemented HSE training for employees, including mandatory e-learning programs for all employees plus short, “quick hit” lessons called Nano-learning. HSE training programs at various production sites are tailored to suit local operations.
From Sick Leave to Wellness
The company’s commitment to its employees’ health and wellbeing goes beyond preventing illness and injuries. The company seeks to provide an environment that encourages a healthy lifestyle, and thus reducing the risk of staff having to go on sick leave. The Aker Active program last year rolled out “The Challenge,” in which employees are encouraged to push each other toward more exercise, healthy nutrition and stress management.
