Falck restructures its Safety Services
The rescue and safety group Falck is restructuring its business division Falck Safety Services. The move is in response to the global crisis in the oil and gas industry.
Falck Safety Services provides safety training services to off-shore staff from the oil and gas industry. The low oil and gas prices mean that oil and gas companies have significantly reduced their off-shore headcounts and thus also the number of staff sent for training at the Safety Service training centres.
Falck’s Group CEO Allan Søgaard Larsen calls the restructuring necessary given the current situation.
“We have to reduce our costs further, both for managing the business division and in the countries where Safety Services operates. Moreover, our strategy must be further adapted to the new conditions prevailing in the oil and gas industry”, said Allan Søgaard Larsen.
“During his eight years with Falck, Peter Svarrer has contributed to developing the division from a number of training centres into a strong division of Falck with focus on growth, expansion and development that has established Falck Safety Services in largely all the markets that have off-shore oil and gas fields. I would like to express my respect and gratitude for Peter Svarrer’s work for Falck”, said Allan Søgaard Larsen.
We care for the well-being of people and excel in saving and improving lives of people in urgent need. This has made Falck an international leader in emergency response and healthcare.
For more than a century, Falck has worked with local and national governments to prevent accidents, diseases and emergency situations, to rescue and assist people in emergencies quickly and competently and to rehabilitate people after illness or injury.
Falck operates in 30 countries and has approximately 30,000 employees.
