Golder's GoldRef honored with a Safety Recognition

May 9, 2017

TurvaOppi (Safety Docrine) -project was on April 25th honoured with Safety Recognition at the Finnish Education Safety Forum.

Golder in Finland has played a key role during the starting phase of the Safety Docrine project which was carried out during 2015 - 2017. The project focused on developing good practices to improve and to maintain the HSS (Health, Safety and Security) within educational institutions. The Finnish National Agency for Education sponsored this project and Golder was responsible on analyzing the current level of HSS in six pilot educational institutions represented by basic education (7–16 years old students) and different kind of secondary educations (17 years old or older students) e.g. high school, vocational school and university of applied sciences.


These analyses were carried out using GoldRef tool, developed by Golder Associates. GoldRef is an interview based method to comprehensively analyze organizations HSSE level from a behavioral based safety aspect. TurvaOppi Hazard Identification and TurvaOppi Risk Assessment methods were developed based on findings made with GoldRef analyses, and are integrated into teaching and suitable for different kind educational institutions.

Golder’s Tiina Lius, Project Manager & Team Leader Health & Safety Services and Mia Virtanen, Health & Safety Manager performed the interviews and wrote the final report; and Jarmo Rantala, Project Manager, was responsible for the Quality Assurance.
