A safe and healthy working environment is a cornerstone of our supply reliability.
A safe and healthy workplace
The vast majority of our employees work at production sites or our in the field. This means they need to pay special attention to heavy machinery, moving vehicles and automated robotic systems while they work. Our number one priority is to keep our employees and partners safe and uninjured.
Our focus is not only on reducing the risks in the workplace, but also on preventive measures contributing to our people’s health and well-being.
We have been actively building our corporate culture to make preventive safety a natural part of everyday activities. We also involve contractors and visitors in safety management. Our goal is to have zero fatal and serious accidents.
We want to make every day a safe working day
Our business partners and their employees on our sites are required to adopt our safe work practices and to comply with the rules and standards we have established. Learn more about the safety related topics that you need to be aware of while working.
Safety works as basis for our employees’ wellbeing but creating a supportive working environment is also important
All UPM employees are treated as individuals regardless of gender, age, ethnic origin, or nationality, and we welcome the talent of people of various competences and backgrounds to our global team.
We are committed to promoting decent work and fair employment conditions in our own operations and across our value chain.
Our Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) management systems embrace the principle of continuous improvement, which involves extensive internal and external audits and management reviews. The systems cover 100% of our units and all their employees, plus any contractors working on-site.
