Social Responsibility

We want to create a safe, secure and healthy workplace

Within Balco Group, we measure, create action plans and follow up, among other things, sick leave, accidents and staff turnover.We must be an open and inclusive company where employees thrive, perform and develop regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. That companies within the Group are safe and secure workplaces for both employees and subcontractors is a basic requirement.

We work systematically to eliminate accidents in order to realize our zero vision. Some common high-risk areas are work at high altitudes, heavy crane lifting and work in an environment that is served by trucks. Important efforts to prevent accidents include safe behavior, education and the right aids.The employee interview fulfills an important function in order to identify training needs, set up career paths and find the balance between work and leisure.
