We stay safe
Stora Enso wants everyone home safe, every day – our own employees, our contractors and suppliers, as well as all on-site visitors. Our goal is zero accidents and we work every day towards that goal.
At Stora Enso, safety starts with management but it is also everyone’s personal responsibility to work safely. We believe in creating an open safety culture where everyone can give feedback and make observations about safe and unsafe behaviour and conditions in a constructive way. When we make good choices and decisions about safety and let each other know when we need to do better, all accidents can be prevented.
- Educate yourself about our group-wide safety policies and instructions. There are also country-specific requirements and guidance available for managers and employees.
- Contact your local Safety Manager or HR for local safety trainings, rules, and instructions.
Q: I’m visiting one of our mills and as I’m about to enter the production area, my host gives me a pair of safety goggles and a high-visibility vest but no helmet or safety shoes. I haven’t been given any safety instructions and now I’m wondering if it’s safe for me to visit the production area at all. What should I do?
A: Safety instructions for our mills and even different parts a specific mill can vary, so it’s important that you ask your host if your safety gear is adequate. But regardless of this, you should have been given safety instructions, including what to do in emergency situations, when you arrived. Give feedback to your host and report the case as a safety observation to the local safety manager.
