a sound work environment
important objective of GreenZone is to inspire people
to take initiatives and act to improve the environment.
GreenZone is to stimulate commitment and promote
an increased understanding of what we can do to
contribute to a sustainable society.
an aim to increase knowledge of ecological sustainability
everyone who works at the facility's various operations
has completed a thorough environmental training
course. This helps to create a sense of participation
in the project and heightens the level of commitment
on the part of each co-worker.
own interest in environmental issues naturally increased.
Initially I was sceptical but now I've even begun
driving an ethanol powered car. You suddenly realise
what you as an individual can do, instead of shrugging
your shoulders and saying your role is so small
that it doesn't make any difference," observes Statoil
station manager Thomas Zachrisson. Another important
aspect of GreenZone is the work environment. Well-lit
premises with modern furnishings etc naturally play
an important role but more central in a sound work
environment are matters like the quality of indoor
air and the electrical environment.
FILTER IMPROVES WORK ENVIRONMENT
The facility's ventilation system differs from conventional
systems in that it employs a FLIMMERŪ filter which
purifies the air using micro-fibres instead of forcing
the air through a filtration material. This results
in very efficient particle separation. The filter
effectively separates airborne particles, even the
tiniest, and the service life is long even in demanding
charging the filter with static electricity using
the air flow the air resistance is reduced thereby
cutting energy consumption. Furthermore, there is
no dust released when handling the filter.
ELECTRICAL ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT SIDE-EFFECTS
All electrical installations in the facility are
designed and installed to reduce the electrical
pulse and magnetic fields which means the effect
on people is cut to a minimum.
show that all areas of the facility are below the
recommended values for magnetic fields. All workplaces
in the facility have values that are more than five
times lower than the recommendations.
