Safe working environment
Metso is committed to offer all employees a safe, healthy and motivating work environment and advances health and safety issues also through a variety of development projects. Health and safety is part of daily tasks for every employee and is continuously developed in cooperation with all levels of personnel.
We believe that every accident can be prevented. Our mid-term target in occupational safety is to achieve an LTIF of less than one by the end of 2021. LTIF reflects the number of incidents resulting in an absence of at least one workday per million hours worked. Our long-term target is zero work-related accidents.
We encourage all employees to discuss safety-related matters openly. Face-to-face safety conversations are a part of every manager’s individual targets. We continuously focus on identifying and preventing occupational safety risks. All employees are expected to pay attention to potential hazards and actively report their risk observations.
Continuous training is essential and currently we conduct special Safety excellence training for the Metso people whose work is related to service and production. The training aims at explaining both the business and personal aspects to safety and helps in finding concrete ways to improve safety in everyday work. The target is to ensure a thorough understanding of our safety requirements and stronger employee engagement throughout the organization. Read more about health and safety
