A prerequisite for motivated employees is their health and safety. Thus, the purpose of the health and safety organization is to promote our employees’ health and ensure that the workplace and work processes are safe. It involves protecting the workforce from danger to life and health resulting from operational activities. These objectives are also defined in our EHS guidelines and are therefore mandatory for all locations of operation worldwide. The main objectives of the health and safety organization are as follows:
- Medical services
- Health check days
- Dietary advice
- Fitness programs and sporting activities
- Bright and friendly workplaces
- Work-life balance
- Safe workplaces, machines and facilities
- Work processes that comply with or go beyond safety requirements
- Personal protective equipment
- Managers who promote safety at work
- Employees working in line with safety guidelines
Health and Safety Management
Providing a safe working environment requires strict management. In order to continually monitor the degree of achievement of our objectives for health and safety, we implemented a management system according to the internationally recognized standard OHSAS 18001. Individual sites are certified externally.
Health and Safety Statistics
Managing the health and safety of our employees includes the application and documentation of proper safeguards to processes, equipment, methods and procedures, and by providing employees with the training necessary to perform their jobs safely. The effectiveness of our health and safety programs can be measured by our health and safety statistics.
