A safe workplace is about something as self-evident as no-one’s health or safety being put at risk by their going to work. Our employees are our most important resource and the aim is for health and safety efforts to lead to a zero injury workplace.
There is a strong link between systematic work on health and safety, stable production and higher product quality. We are the most resource-efficient when we have a safe and stable production. In other words, creating safe workplaces is both a strategic and a business-critical question for Billerud.
Developing a safe working environment
Work to develop a safe working environment covers the whole business. Partly it is about using standards and procedures that clearly set out how each task must be carried out to create and followed-up. Partly it is about developing attitudes and behaviours that ensure a safe working environment. All contractors must follow and respect the Supplier Code of Conduct, other procedures and behaviours for a safe workplace. Our responsibility includes clarifying expectations and the demands we make, and following up and taking action where shortcomings are found on the part of contractors.
