Prosafe recognises the importance of offering employees a good and safe working environment in both physical and psychosocial terms.
The promotion of psychosocial well-being is an active part of the responsibilities of line management. Prosafe has invested and introduced Mental Health at Work First Aiders, further expanding the level of first aid support within the organisation.
All employees should have a good balance between work requirements, individual opportunity for control and participation, and support from colleagues and managers. Reducing sickness absence is significant to the well-being of the individual employee, and also has a positive financial effect on the company and society as a whole.
It is our objective that nobody should suffer work-related illnesses or strain injuries as a consequence of working for Prosafe.
Our sickness absence levels have decreased from 2.53% in 2017 to 2.07% in 2018. We believe that a good working environment and a close follow-up of employees are prerequisites for achieving the lowest possible sickness absence rate.
We monitor and manage all areas of absence (actual and potential) closely. We also take steps to enable employees to return to work on light duties, either in the office or on shorter vessel trips to re-assimilate the employee’s return to work.
Special attention is paid to employees exposed to certain hazards such as high noise environments, exposure to chemicals and other conditions that may be harmful to health. We carry out regular occupational health assessments for these risks.
