Safety and health at work

A team approach is applied in relation to safety and health at work, in cooperation with experts from various business segments in both the parent company and the Triglav Group.

Risks related to safety and health at work are managed by means of regular monitoring, implementing the measures set out, and setting new, higher requirements.

Better control of the safety and health at work system has been achieved by setting up a system of electronic recording of requirements and the retention of prescribed documents.

A safe and healthy working environment is also guaranteed by regular work place inspections, advising employees at their working place, preparing instructions on safe and healthy working practices, training at the working place, and continuous monitoring of the measures adopted. Training on safety and health at work was organised in several regional units of Zavarovalnica Triglav within the "Harmony of Life and Work" (Triglav.smo) project (see Section Care for employee satisfaction below). Such training will continue in 2012.

Protection against fire

In order to achieve a higher level of intervention in protection against fire:

  • an e-application was developed to keep records of fire protection measures;
  • regular maintenance of active fire safety systems and equipment was carried out at all locations in Slovenia;
  • practical training for evacuation and fighting initial fires was organised in order to mitigate the risk for employees.

Injuries at work

The number of injuries at work was reduced again in 2011. With 24 injuries in total, the number was 8% lower than in the year before. Compared to the previous year, the number of injuries resulting from business trips was lower by 11; there were 25% less injuries resulting from accidents while commuting to/from work, but injuries at work were nearly three times more frequent. Slips were the main cause of injuries.
