”Stay Accident-Free Everyday – SAFE” is our safety campaign for Autumn 2022, where we focus on raising safety awareness in general across our land-based organization and addressing some of those behavioural habits we all easy can change to reduce the number of accidents we have.
The safety of our employees is paramount to the success of DFDS, and we want to ensure that all employees have a safe working environment where it is safe to work, and we all come back home unharmed.
While DFDS can provide the framework, then we will not succeed without each individual employee also taking responsibility for their own and colleagues’ safety.
We have seen lately a significant number of incidents across our entire range of land-based business caused by a lack of attention to own safety like:
· Tripping over curbs caused by not looking where walking
· Slips caused by the use of wrong footwear
· Back strains from wrong lifting techniques
· Cuts caused by not using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
During the campaign, we will be using posters (which can be downloaded below), videos, team dialogues and exercises to raise attention to our own safety. Your local Health & Safety teams will drive the activities in the campaign, so stay tuned for more locally.
