The service stops of the plant create special challenges for occupational safety as there are dozens of employees from different companies working at the plant at the same time during the service stop, and most of the work carried out differs significantly from routine tasks. Therefore, everyone working at the plant site goes through safety orientation material. The material is online so the employee can read the safety instructions thoroughly before arriving at the plant site.
All development actions and to encourage personal to make safety observations have raised occupational safety at Westenergy to new level. We can now be proud to say that Westenergy has been without accidents for 4 years on December 2019.
