Health and safety

Our commitment

Our goal is to become industry-leading in health and safety management and to achieve this, we have developed a health and safety programme with clear objectives and priorities.


Every colleague is accountable for health and safety of themselves and others.

Chris Newitt

"I fully support our commitment to Health & Safety at Scania (Great Britain) Ltd, including the implementation and monitoring our priorities. Safety must be something we do as matter of course in our daily operations. Whatever role we are in, we should work safely by minimizing risks to ourselves and our colleagues. We do not delegate our responsibility for Health & Safety – we are all equally responsible and accountable. Our Health & Safety policy will be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure it addresses the main issues we have identified across our business, which necessitate the implementation of suitable and adequate controls. It will be available to all employees and interested parties."

Our Health and Safety principles

We’re guided by eight health and safety principles:

1. Health and Safety comes first

No compromises.

2. We prioritise the safety of our colleagues, customers & communities

Adapt to your environment. Whether you are in a workshop, in the office, by the roadside or perhaps visiting another location – whatever your situation, think about the safety of yourself,  your customers and the local community.

3. We make decisions based on our principles and values

When decisions need to be made, we will first consider these principles and the Scania Values. If any are compromised, we will reassess our decisions.

4. Positive health and safety behaviours are recognized and celebrated

Spotted something wrong? We will recognise the efforts of those who pro-actively reduce risks, creating a safer working environment for everyone.

5. We continually learn from our experiences to improve our approach to health & safety

Continual learning is key. All safety measures, including audits, will undergo regular reviews so we can learn from them and share best practice throughout the business, reducing and controlling risks. 

6. We report, investigate and resolve unsafe conditions and behaviours

All incidents should be reported, so we can understand and find solutions, preventing future accidents. 

7. We consistently demonstrate personal ownership and accountability for safety through our actions & behaviours

As a Scania employee, you have the right to challenge anyone who is not adhering to our safety rules.

8. Do the right thing

Never take a health & safety shortcut to complete a job more quickly or to meet a deadline. Do the right thing, even when no one is watching. Refer to principle 1.
