28 April 2021

World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Safety is key for all employees and companies in A.P. Moller Group, and each day, procedures and activities are carried out to ensure a safe working environment all over the world

28 April is World Day for Safety and Health at Work. Many of our portfolio companies take this opportunity to emphasise the importance of safety. They do this in very different ways, but all with the same objective: to ensure a strong safety culture which is instrumental in creating a safe work environment.

“Colleagues at sea and on shore have done a tremendous job of becoming industry leaders in terms of safety performance. Still, near misses and accidents continue to happen when we least expect it. We must never let our guard down.”

Thinking sessions in Maersk Drilling

Maersk Drilling will carry out three online thinking sessions with Nippin Anand, Founder and CEO of Novellus Solutions, focussing on how to move from a traditional reporting culture towards a culture of learning. Through interactive discussions, the participants are encouraged to think, reflect and learn from each other, challenging their assumptions on human errors.

Frequency does not equal risk at Maersk Tankers & Maersk Product Tankers

In collaboration with HiLo MRM, Maersk Tankers have put together an online activity on predictive risk modelling to be completed by all employees at sea or on shore. Through a combination of videos, slideshows and exercises, the participants will gain a better understanding of why ‘frequency does not equal risk’.

Safety awareness and training at KK Wind Solutions

KK Wind Solutions is celebrating the day by performing training sessions throughout the company to increase safety awareness and build a strong safety culture. For example, the service technicians working on-site in Cuxhaven, Germany, will address the on-site safety culture during their morning toolbox meeting.

Health checks at A.P. Moller – Maersk

Due to the pandemic, A.P. Moller – Maersk has rescheduled their annual company-wide safety day to September. They will, however, mark the 28 April by addressing the outbreak of infectious diseases at work – particularly COVID-19 – by encouraging all leaders to do a ‘health check’ on their teams and themselves. By addressing questions such as ‘What is your biggest safety concern right now?’ or ‘What would help you to feel better or safer’, the objective is to start conversations on physical wellbeing and preventing disease – and for leaders to check in on their team’s mental wellbeing too.
