TR measurements (working conditions assessment) are a means of observing occupational safety on construction sites. These measurements monitor key factors affecting on-site accidents. From VVO Group’s perspective, these measurements are important for maintaining occupational safety at a good level. The Group has collected this information as from 2013.
In the tender stage, the project manager sets the minimum level of TR measurements. At the site start-up meeting, the target levels are specified with the contractor. At monthly construction site meetings, these TR figures are compared with actual figures measured on the site.
