Bilfinger Principles for HSEQ

We create working conditions which maintain and protect the health of our employees. We provide and use opportunities for passive and active preventive health care and for health maintenance.


We are convinced that it is possible to completely avoid accidents. Consistent compliance with safety regulations by all employees, responsibility for each individual for him or herself and for the community as well as the impact of role models are key components of our safety awareness and our safety culture.

We ensure that negative impact on the environment as a result of our business activities is reduced as much as possible. Acting in a sustainable and environmentally aware manner in all our activities and decisions serves as a basis for this approach and contributes to the achievement of constant improvements in environmental protection. 

We are committed to the success of the services ordered. We provide our clients with products and services in a timely manner which comply with contractually agreed levels of quality and legal requirements as well as the value benchmarks of society. We are on hand to develop optimized solutions together with our clients.

Our HSEQ Objectives for 2021

Health & Safety
Drive further reduction in our incident and injury rates through enhanced leadership behaviors and processes. Empowered personnel always start work safely and stop work if it is unsafe. The new campaign “Line of fire – keep clear” focuses on one of the five Bilfinger Life Saving Rules, which addresses a major risk in our daily operations.

Drive innovation and market penetration on Bilfinger solutions for energy efficiency and CO2 reduction. Through increased use of digitalization opportunities e.g. video conferencing, remote work, virtual reality and by energy efficient offices and workshops, as well reducing our dependence upon single use plastics also accelerate our carbon reduction journey towards being carbon neutral.

Ensure continuous improvement of products and services with concurrent reduction of expenses for quality deviations by assessing and understanding the root causes through use of the new RCA application.

Bilfinger SAFETYWORKS! is a company-wide program for the sustainable improvement of safety performance.
