About VNT’s contractor safety program


To encourage compliance with labour safety rules daily, VNT has implemented a special safety program for contractors. Within the framework of this program, everyone who wants to enter the territory of VNT and work there has to watch video instructions and pass a safety test. After successfully passing the test, the contractor receives three stickers or “Lives” to put on their helmet. If a gross violation is committed whilst working, VNT employees have rights to remove one sticker. After losing the third “Life” the contractor’s employee is banished from VNT’s territory until the end of the year.
