A SAFE PLACE TO WORK


 

We want to create a safe, pleasant, healthy and sustainable working community. We focus especially on the ergonomics of heavy work stages, we require our employees to use protective equipment at production facilities, and we ensure safe movement in factory areas.

Koskisen actively promotes occupational well-being by supporting employee exercise with Smartum exercise benefits (vouchers or balance) and providing extensive occupational healthcare support.

We encourage our employees to develop work safety by rewarding them for providing good safety initiatives. We rely on the OHSAS 18001 to take care of our working health and safety levels.

We want to offer a safe working place to our employees

Ensuring and developing safety at work belongs to everyday routines at Koskisen. We need to refine both our safety tools and working methods and our attitudes in order to reach the goal of zero accidents.

The journey has begun although we realize that there is much to do to reach this ambitious, but attainable goal.  Systematic work makes the journey possible and keeps us on the right track.

By systematic work we mean proactive work and prompt corrective actions. We want to minimize the occurrence of dangerous incidents, deviations from agreed working methods and accidents. This is possible through careful risk analysis, active safety remark system and continuous training of the whole staff. The corrective actions aim to eliminate immediate hazardous places and events and analyze the cause of these events.

We measure safety both through proactive and corrective or reactive measures taken. Proactivity is measured as the annual number of safety remarks made per employee and the number of safety check made in different work departments. Corrective actions are weighed against the speed and effectiveness of measures taken. Work related accidents are measured as from the beginning of year 2017 with metric LTA¹ which counts accidents causing one or more sick leave days per million working hours. LTA¹ is an internationally recognized metric and enables to compare ourselves more transparently and clearly with other companies.

We have started the long-term journey towards zero accidents and fully believe in positive future safety development. In fact, some of our units have already been able to demonstrate long periods of zero accidents in their daily operations. Each of our employees must also pass the Occupational Safety Card training.

Group level goal
  • LTA¹ accident frequency: by the end of 2018 max 13 (accidents causing 1 or more sick leave days / 1 000 000 working hours), goal zero accidents
  • Safety remarks by the end of 2018: 3 remarks per employee on annual basis
Outcome in 2017
  • LTA¹: 22.4 (accidents causing 1 or more sick leave days / 1 000 000 working hours)
  • Safety remarks: 2 safety remarks per employee
