Providing a safe and secure environment for employees, passengers, customers, tenants and transported goods is a top priority for Stena. The Group has a vision of zero accidents. Safety work is in constant progress around the Group and is aimed at both continuous improvements and keeping employees updated on safety awareness. The increased digitalisation in recent years has also heightened requirements for security with regard to information assets and IT systems.

Safety proactive work


For more than ten years, Northern Marine Group has worked in accordance with a process called Behaviour Based Safety (BBS), which is a proactive way of analysing and preventing work-related incidents and accidents. Employees report potential safety risks that they see in their daily work. Each reported event can be seen as a potential incident or accident that has been avoided. In 2017, 9,924 events were reported in the BBS system, an increase of 11.3 percent from 2016.

11.3% more events reported in 2017

In 2017, Stena Line introduced the Stop the Job policy, which encour-ages employees to stop dangerous work situations before accidents occur. Stop the Job has only been used a few times during the year.


The importance of information security is increasing in today’s society and Stena is continuously working to improve this. In 2017, the organisation has been exposed to several attacks both in the form of false invoices and attacks on the company’s business systems. The vast majority of attacks have been warded off thanks to good security systems and routines. An e-learning on information security has been designed for employees. By the end of 2017, 80 percent of all office employees had completed it.
