Safety at work

Our priority is to provide a safe and healthy workplace for all of our employees. Metsä Group has a proactive approach on workplace safety and well-being and a long-term goal of zero accidents.

Security is an integral part of our business and culture. We develop a safe and accident-free working environment through a proactive approach aimed at avoiding incidents and accidents. We actively monitor and analyse the results of our safety work to help us determine the right measures to ensure and promote safety in our working environment.

At Metsä Group, safety at work is an integral part of our daily work. Its implementation is monitored and managed Group-wide. We want to ensure a safe working environment for everyone working at Metsä Group. Safety management also covers the safety of our partners, i.e. service providers and other stakeholders.

Our long-term safety goal is zero accidents

We actively report safety findings and seek to learn from incidents. Every accident, incident and near miss is investigated and leads to corrective or preventive action. This ensures that we can avoid a recurrence of accidents or incidents.Mills and businesses share these experiences, lessons learned and other best practices with each other.

Preventive hazard and risk identification

The key to Metsä Group's safety management is the preventive identification of hazards and risks. Every person working at Metsä Group receives safety training on key hazards in the work environment. We do not accept unsafe working practices and we follow safety guidelines. Every person working for us has the right and the duty to intervene in risky activities and to correct unsafe practices and conditions.
