Sund & Bælt actively works on being an attractive workplace that looks after employee safety, health and well-being.
Our objective is to maintain a healthy and safe working environment with no industrial accidents. For Sund & Bælt, the working environment conditions relating to movement and work on our facilities, and at the toll station at the Storebælt Bridge, are particularly critical. Our efforts are based on a working environment policy and a management system that supports continuous improvement.
We conduct mandatory safety training for all employees and contractors who need to perform work on Storebælt’s road and railway. We analyse and investigate all accidents with a view to improvements. External suppliers who work at our facility are required to report accidents.
As the only bridge and railway owner in the world, we are certified under DS/OHSAS 18001:2008 in the working environment area, likewise we have The Danish Working Environment Authority’s Crown Smiley.
