Caring for our employees and contracted personnel and ensuring that each and every one return to their families healthy and without injury is our first priority.  In addition, HSE performance is also a measure of our housekeeping, operational performance and productivity. While records show that our HSE performance is improving, there is no time for complacency. It was with deep grief and distress that fatal accidents were suffered last year related to our operations. Our deepest sympathies and support go the families of the deceased. Investigations were initiated following the incidents, and steps have been taken to ensure that similar accidents don’t happen again.

A key measure of HSE performance is the frequency of “Lost Time Incident” (LTI). Last financial year GR recorded an LTI frequency of 9/million man-hours (mh) or 1.8/200,000mh, which indicates safety performance on par with good international practice. However, it is double the Norwegian construction industry, therefore there is significant room for improvement.

Learning from past years, our focus going forwards will be on transport and driving, harvesting, and housekeeping. Including training on safe operations (such as chain-saw training). We will continue to put emphasis on health, hygiene and work environment to bring the sick leave down. While all staff at Green Resources are responsible for their health and safety, a special responsibility rests on managers to lead the way and ensure that we consider the HSE risk in everything we do.
