Spotlight on safety at the Fehmarnbelt construction project
An objective of Femern A/S is to create one of Denmark’s safest construction sites.
Major construction projects like the Fehmarnbelt tunnel, where many professionals work together and complex tasks are designed and carried out, are highly demanding in terms of safety. In the main, thorough training in safety and the working environment is an important element in the establishment of the construction site and during construction near and at the Fehmarnbelt.
As the construction site will be one of the largest in Europe, where many professionals will work together on complex tasks, Femern A/S’ safety requirements will be particularly high.
Everyone who works on Femern A/S’ tunnel construction sites will be required to have a high level of knowledge about safety and working environment conditions in order that work is as safe and secure as possible for the individual employee.
Construction workers on the Fehmarnbelt tunnel will have good and healthy working conditions, which also include good accommodation where they will have the opportunity to rest during their free time. There will be housing complexes for seconded personnel who cannot reasonably be expected to commute between their home and workplace. Femern A/S will impose precise requirements on the accommodation standards for such employees.
Femern A/S is working closely together with the authorities on developing the safety measures on the construction site in order to avoid accidents, minimize the impact and ensure a fast rescue effort.
