EMBRACING A CULTURE OF SAFETY

Safety is at the top of the agenda at KONE, and it is our strong belief that all accidents are preventable.

Safety is a joint effort

Safety involves everyone from technology and maintenance service providers to building owners and equipment users. We have global policies, processes, and guidelines in place to enable that our business activities, including subcontractor operations, are organised and conducted in a structured and globally harmonised way.

Everyone who uses a lift or escalator needs to be conscious of their own behaviour, for example making sure children’s hands are held when riding an escalator, and not blocking closing lift doors.

Building owners and maintenance service providers are responsible for making sure equipment is professionally maintained and kept in good condition.

Children and safety

Habits learned young tend to stick. That is why KONE sees children as an important target group when it comes to reaching out on equipment safety.
