Occupational safety and workplace surveys


  • Hjálmur Verkís

How can you best ensure employee well-being and that your staff will always return home safely at the end of the working day?

Security, health, and occupational safety work increases productivity and reduces absences and employee turnover. Verkís offers its clients wide-ranging consultancy in the area of occupational health and safety, which covers all areas of an operational environment.

There are the so-called critical group meetings where the company's specialists lead you through an assessment of the workplace as regards factors affecting occupational health and safety, employee health and well-being, lighting conditions, safe operation, fire protection, energy costs, and maintenance. These one-hour meetings are held at no charge to clients.

Verkís has accreditation as an occupational health and safety service provider from the Icelandic Administration of Occupational Safety and Health and can therefore assist business enterprises with health and safety management in the workplace and compliance with the provisions of occupational health and safety law through the formulation of prevention programs, safety management plans, as well as by drawing up risk assessments for work positions and holding courses for staff where the objective is to prevent accidents and mitigate their effects.

In order to boost the effectiveness of solutions and measure the success of the improvements made, Verkís offers to do employee surveys for its clients. These are based on standard methodology and assess both workplace conditions and employees well-being in order to identify potential problems in the workplace, which might concern anything from air quality to psychological well-being. The company also provides advice on establishing and introducing safety management according to OHSAS 18001, as well as formulating and presenting  safety policy to staff.
