Our goal is zero accidents

Safety is an integral part of KONE’s strategy and a cornerstone of our business. For this reason, we have defined it as our highest priority. Our ultimate goal – for all of our employees, users of our equipment, and partners – is zero accidents. We work towards achieving it by continuously developing our people and processes, working together with our partners, and actively communicating with users about the safe use of equipment.
