Occupational Health and Safety
Occupational Health and Safety Management at Türk Telekom
As its most valuable asset, Türk Telekom prioritises the health and safety of its employees, working day and night in order to provide uninterrupted service in different geographies and challenging climate conditions in every corner of the country.
Türk Telekom prioritises the health and safety of its employees and solution partners in all fields of activities. It adopts a proactive approach in order to ensure the safety of its employees at the Head Office and on the ground, and to safeguard them from occupational accidents and diseases. The Company evaluates the instant notifications it receives from the employees, initiates actions before accidents occur, and ensures the elimination of dangerous situations and behaviours.
In addition to following the legal legislation, Türk Telekom acts in accordance with the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard in all its activities.
With the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System in the Headquarters and all Regional Directorates and Telecom Offices, continuous improvement of occupational health and safety performance is ensured. One of the two fatal accidents reported in 2022 occurred as a result of a heart attack, which was not caused by work, but was reported as an occupational accident because it happened in the compound area located within the borders of the workplace. Furthermore, Türk Telekom did not record any environmental accidents and was not issued any environmental penalties in 2022.
Türk Telekom organises various events each year in order to create a culture of occupational health and safety and to raise the awareness of its employees on this issue. During the Occupational Health and Safety Week on May 4-10, the best occupational safety photographs were selected with the motto "I'm Safe with Occupational Safety" in the competition held among the employees, and various awards were granted to the top-ranked employees.
In order to raise awareness on Occupational Health and Safety, 1,141 employees received in-class OHS training and 19,094 employees received online basic OHS training in 2022.
