Safe working practices and safe infrastructure

Input and correlations relevant to issue

Issue definition

Work on gas and electricity infrastructure involves risks. Safe working practices without incidents are vital for all stakeholders. The safety of networks for everyone involved is our highest priority. The possibility that incidents could occur in the energy network means a targeted approach is even more crucial.

Stakeholder expectation

Safe working practices are vital for all stakeholders. Employees expect a working environment where they can concentrate and work safely. Customers expect us to guarantee their safety during the performance of our work.

Our long-term objective

Everyone safely home! That is Alliander’s safety ambition. In addition, Alliander promotes a proactive culture where safety comes first. No target (figure) is set for the Lost Time Incident Frequency (LTIF) performance indicator, because the number of accidents leading to sickness absence should be zero.

Contribution from Alliander

Alliander goes by the ‘Life-Saving Rules’. A safe working environment and culture of safety help us raise safety awareness and ensure safer behaviour. In 2020, there were 21 lost-time accidents and 30 accidents that did not result in employees having to take time off work, which played a part in Alliander’s LTIF decreasing to 1.8.

Relationship with Alliander impact model: human capital

Work-related accidents and sickness impair the well-being and happiness of those concerned. As an employer, Alliander always aims to make a positive contribution to the well-being of employees.
