HSSE Manager in Thailand, Eirik Mork Knudsen, tells that the new safety centre is an important step towards achieving Aibel’s long-term target of zero injuries and incidents.

“By spending more time on training from the time employees start working for us, we want to ensure that everyone knows the correct tools and which work methods to use, that they are familiar with the risks related to the work – and not least how to handle them,” he says.

The safety centre facilitates practical demonstration, thereby offering a less theoretical and more interesting training than previous programs.
