Driving internal safety commitments at Scania
Scania is a leading manufacturer of heavy trucks, buses, coaches and industrial and marine engines and a major supplier to British Industry.
Risk management and compliance issues
In 2002 Scania suffered two employee fatalities incurred whilst repairing trucks. This prompted Scania to assess their operational processes and procedures around health and safety and risk management.
The review concluded that a wide spread change in culture was required, supported by several immediate changes to keep their workforce safe. The report highlighted several issues:
- Managing Employee safety was difficult using the existing systems
- No in-depth appreciation of the risks involved across the business or how they could be controlled
- No way of measuring the cost to the business
- No way of monitoring any impact on employee health.
Scania initially rolled out a suite of core Rivo functionality, including the Incident, CoSHH, Audits and Risk Assessments modules. This was further expanded to include Asset Management and DSE assessments in the portfolio.
Rivo has restored Scania’s confidence that they can manage their operations to the highest Health and Safety levels possible
The roll out and adoption of Rivo has improved company-wide communications and improved risk management across the business
A strong and universal Safety culture now exists at all levels at Scania.
