Stakeholder - NordSafety

Should more countries adopt the Finnish TR method?


Introduced in 1992, the TR method is a Finnish system of rating health and safety management on building sites, using behaviour and condition based observations to calculate the likelihood of an accident occurring. Now used throughout hundreds of construction sites and by all major construction companies across Finland, the TR method was the first standardised and validated system of monitoring safety.

Whilst touring a site, safety inspectors will assess procedures, entering their findings onto an inspection sheet. The elements that are reviewed include working practices, scaffolding and ladders, machinery and equipment, protection against falling and general order and tidiness. These aspects are scored as either ‘correct’ or ‘not correct’ to form a TR safety index number for that working area.

The TR safety index is a percentage between zero and one hundred, calculated as the number of ‘correct’ items of all of those that were observed, meaning that the higher the percentage, the better the site is performing. Sites with low scores are likely to have an accident rate around three times higher than those with high index figures.

Having been proven to lower accident and near miss rates, the TR system engages both management and workers in health and safety practices. Is it time for such a system to be implemented outside of Finland?

The mobile TR Audit is included within the NordSafety app as standard, allowing you to adopt this established approach when monitoring your own EHSQ requirements and site performance.

Try the TR method for yourself with NordSafety.

At Skangas safety is a high priority. We implemented NordSafety platform at our Pori LNG terminal construction site to make HSE reporting easier and more comprehensive. Major benefits are gained in time savings with mobile reporting but also through straight forward ways to manage HSE issues.

Stanislav Lysak, Skangas

We have been extremely happy with NordSafety EHS solution. It's easy to use and reporting on the field is simple. We take safety seriously and identification of risks and hazards is a very important function for us. Our goals are to prevent accidents and to find out new things to improve in our working environment. With NordSafety EHS solution all this has become really easy and our people are more engaged to use the system because of the great user experience.

    What is a Stakeholder?

    A stakeholder is a Mircosite that has the power to highlight a product or service, launch a promotion, or promote brand awareness to the construction industry in a way that full websites or more traditional marketing cannot.

    All stakeholders have the ability to have their latest press releases and case studies promoted across the UK Construction Online platform. UK Construction Online is updated daily, with the latest news across all sectors within the construction industry and all stakeholders are promoted on both social media and to a mailing list of over 122,000 subscribers.
