Once completed, the west metro will be one of the safest metro lines in the world. Safety is of particular concern already during construction, and contractors are required to comply with strict safety regulations.
Cooperation with authorities and contractors
Rescue services are involved in planning. We organise regularly practical rescue exercises in demanding conditions together with contractors and rescue services.
Construction safety is supervised by the occupational safety and health administration of the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southern Finland. We also cooperate closely with the tax authorities to put a stop to grey economy in the industry.
In order to develop worksite safety and good safety practices, we have launched a Safest Metro Worksite competition for the metro worksites that encourages contractors to construct safely.
