Bilfinger receives recognition for excellent HSE performance in 2017

February 01, 2018

The positive HSE development in Bilfinger's operations has been delivered in a challenging period with considerable reduction in activity level.

There is not only one single explanation to the achievement:

- This is a result of systematic and continuous work to improve over time, says Tove Tyber√ł, Managing Director in Bilfinger Industrier Norge AS. The following aspects have been important for the success of our project team:

  • Solid risk awareness and risk management in the projects
  • Predictability during the operational phase and the ability to work according to pre-planned activity programs
  • Stable and focused leadership on site

- By focusing on "Near Miss" reporting, we have obtained a more proactive and preventive approach to the risk picture. The analyses engages our operational teams and show that the reporting is being applied in a constructive manner. Undoubtedly, it has also led to reflections related to the "I am Safety" campaign, says Eirik Halvorsen, Operation Manager for Bilfinger.

- Together with Bilfinger, we find these results very gratifying, says Are Sjaastad, Head of ISP Execution in Equinor. We are determined to succeed within the area of HSE, and the development of Bilfinger demonstrates that our ambitions are realistic, he continues.
