QHSE in FairWind
At FairWind, quality, health, safety and environment is closely integrated with a specific emphasis on client requirements and on well laid-out policies and procedures within our management system.
As part of FairWind’s overall management system, quality, health, safety and environment procedures and the responsibilities and delegation of manpower are all well laid-out before we even commence on any given client project.
Needless to say, no system can be effectively implemented without commitment and a written QHSE Policy from management, which is clearly understood and communicated to all the employees in the organization.
FairWind management as well as the Board extends its full support in maintaining high standards of QHSE and a good working environment. All efforts are taken to continuously monitor the present QHSE systems and procedures, update them and when necessary implement them in order to satisfy both the client's requirements and our goal of "zero fatal incidents and life changing events".
The QHSE department of FairWind consists of highly skilled and experienced people with a deep knowledge of both quality and HSE within the wind business. Furthermore, FairWind has a 24/7/365 emergency response system ready to support the organization if any serious incidents should occur.
In practice, FairWind’s QHSE approach consists of the following;
- Safety coaches: Our QHSE Officers travel around the world to support projects in all quality and HSE related matters.
- Safety walks: FairWind decided in 2015 that safety walks should be part of the yearly KPI program for all members of the management group.
- Safety meetings / trainings: All projects have implemented weekly safety meetings on top of the client’s safety meetings.
- Specific rules for subcontractors: All subcontractors working with FairWind are assessed by the QHSE department and both competence assessments and audits are essential requirements before a contract is signed.
For any questions concerning our approach towards QHSE, please contact FairWind’s Global Head of QHSE Palle Jensen.
Quality is expressed as the organizational structure, policies, procedures, processes and resources needed to implement quality management of the given work task
Health involves creating organized efforts and procedures for identifying workplace hazards and reducing exposure to harmful situations and substances.
Safety involves training of personnel in accident prevention, accident response, emergency preparedness, and use of protective clothing and equipment.
Environment involves creating a systematic approach to complying with environmental regulations, such as managing waste or air emissions all the way to helping site’s reduce FairWind’s carbon footprint.
