Safety management


We want to provide a safe workplace for our employees and everyone working with us, and to make our customers' operations safe.


At Konecranes, everyone is committed to our journey towards safety excellence, understand the value of health and safety. Together with our customers, and all others working with us, we aim to be the safety leader in our industry. 


There is no job so important or no service so urgent that we cannot take the time to perform our work safely and correctly. Our deeply-rooted safety culture is visible in everything we do.

Safety work starts from our own employees but extends beyond the company’s borders, including for example our product offering, our suppliers, subcontractors and everyone we work with. By providing safe products, solutions and services, we can safeguard our customers’ safety while simultaneously improving their efficiency and productivity. Integrating safety into all areas of our operations is a competitive advantage for us, and thus, safety is an integral part of our business.

Our most significant safety risks are related to factory work, crane and equipment installations, and to the service business, where our technicians’ working conditions vary from job to job. All Konecranes employees are properly trained to perform their tasks safely and correctly. Our overall approach and commitment to safety are outlined in our Health and Safety Policy, and we have several safety management tools and practices in place. HSE minimum requirements set the foundational requirements that all Konecranes locations must fulfill. We implement a Serious Injury and Fatality (SIF) prevention program and measurement and prevention tools have been introduced to support it. Our service technicians use a Point of Work Risk Assessment (PoWRA) template to minimize risks at the point of work. In addition, careful safety reporting and follow-up procedures help us build a coherent safety culture, recognize our most significant risks, and validate the effectiveness of our safety work. 


Konecranes is committed to:

  • Behaving safely – always
  • Zero tolerance towards unsafe acts and safety violations
  • Zero accidents and work related illness at workplace
  • Continually improving our safety culture and performance
  • Meeting or exceeding applicable legal and other requirements
