Good deeds through the safety competition

At the Sipoo logistics centre construction site in Finland, safety matters have been turned into a competition of the safety league. All subcontractors on the construction site are participating in the competition.

Every month in 2016, a winning team was chosen based on the agreed scoring system. The prize was 250 euros, which was donated to the charity of the winner’s choice. The donation was provided by main contractor TYL Freeway (Lemminkäinen and Skanska) and developer SOK Real estate.

The scoring took into account aspects such as participation in construction site safety meetings, making work phase notifications on time, safety observations and compiling of occupational safety plans.

The competition has been received positively among the subcontractors and the plan is to continue it in 2017 as well.
