Everyone has the right to work in a safe and healthy working environment. Our goals and indicators for safety at work support us in continuously developing our operations. At Metsä Group, safety at work is managed and monitored Group-wide. We have achieved good results in the area of safety at work in our comprehensive safety management system, which is based on preventive measures and an effective system for registering safety observations.
All Metsä Wood’s mills use OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Assessment management systems. Our target is to reduce the number of accidents by 10% every year. Our ultimate goal is zero accidents. We provide all our employees and subcontractors working at our mills induction training in safe ways of working.
Metsä Wood’s target of an accident-free working environment refers to the UN Sustainable Development Target 8 (Decent work and economic growth)
