Occupational safety

YIT is constantly enhancing its safety practices, and the management is committed to monitoring and improving occupational safety, for instance, by visiting construction sites. YIT also monitors the compliance of its subcontractors and the entire supply chain with its occupational safety practices. ​

Our approach

Every employee has the right to a safe working environment. At YIT, we have a strong focus on occupational safety, accident prevention and an open safety culture. We comply with the instructions and regulations on occupational safety and health on all our sites. Our partners must also always comply with the workplace safety instructions and regulations.

Our goal is an accident-free work community. We continuously develop proactive measures for improving occupational safety. We monitor our accident frequency and conduct a comprehensive investigation of all workplace accidents.



Did you know?

As occupational safety is an essential part of our values, YIT participates in the common safety week of the Finnish construction industry. The safety week is arranged by the Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries RT (Rakennusteollisuus RT).

During the week, common events are organized for the entire construction industry, but corporations also held their own internal events.

In 2019, the Group's accident frequency was 10.5 (number of accidents per one million hours worked, 12 months rolling).
