Health, safety and the environment

In April of 2014, three contractor employees lost their lives in a rockslide in connection with setting up rockfall protection along a road at the Devoll project in Albania.

A fatality occurred in November at Statkraft’s associated company Agua Imara’s hydropower project in Panama. The accident occurred in connection with a crane lift. One subcontractor employee died and another was seriously injured.

The Group works systematically to avoid injuries and damage in all activities. All serious incidents are subject to investigation and results from these investigations are used to facilitate and transfer learning and experience across the organisation.

Absence due to illness was 2.8% in 2014, and this is considered satisfactory.

The Group experienced no serious environmental incidents in 2014.
