Workplace analysis and management reviews
A workplace analysis is conducted annually in the first quarter of the year. The analysis is designed to assess employees’ opinions pertaining to internal organisation, management and workplace culture. The purpose of the analysis is to collect information on the working environment so that improvements can be made, and to strengthen the team. Management reviews were conducted concurrently so that employees could assess management performance.
A new intranet system with more extensive options for communication was launched this autumn. The news section of the intranet was improved, more photographs were introduced and activity increased. A chat link was added where employees can contribute to dialogue by adding comments and videos much like any other social media site. The development of the intranet is part of our drive to increase communication and dissemination of internal knowledge.
Implementation of health and safety matters
The occupational health and safety management system utilised by the Company is certified in accordance with OHSAS 18001 and the system is reviewed on an annual basis by Landsvirkjun’s safety committee and at the main review meeting held by the Company directors. The electrical safety management system (RÖSK) is reviewed annually by a certified inspector on electrical safety matters. A risk assessment is conducted for all jobs and projects completed by Landsvirkjun. A risk register is developed for larger projects to outline all risks associated with the project, i.e. employee safety.
