Safety is an important aspect of all of the operations of Ports of Stockholm. This means protecting against and being prepared for undesirable incidents and the damage that these can do to people, property and the environment within the areas of responsibility of the City of Stockholm.

Important elements in our safety measures include:

  • Preventive action
  • Assessment and knowledge.

It is the vision of Ports of Stockholm that our safety work should result in tangible and perceived safety and security for our employees, customers and others who visit or work within Ports of Stockholm areas. The following areas are identified as priority areas:

  • Preventive measures
  • Human life and health are our highest priority
  • Training and performing drills
  • Principles of responsibility, familiarity and proximity for crisis management

The principle of responsibility means that the person or people who are responsible for an operation also have the responsibility in a crisis situation. The familiarity principle means that the organisation and location of an operation are maintained as far as is possible in a crisis. The proximity principle means that the crisis is managed as near to those affected as possible.

Our preventive measures comprise actively working to document, analyse, assess and eliminate/mitigate the consequences of undesirable incidents within our operations. This is achieved with the help of our KAMS tool, which is used in our work with quality, work environment, the environment and safety.

Continuous collaboration internally and with the other stakeholders involved is very important.
