Personnel Safety

Outotec is committed to safety at all levels of business. Top management defines targets and ensures resources, line management provides processes and tools and employees are properly trained and empowered to choose safety.

Outotec's approach to safety is systematical. We have defined clear roles and responsibilities, we start everything with proper risk assessment, we document a safe way of working and ensure that every worker is competent, properly trained and has the latest safety information available.

Trust and transparency are important in safety. We expect everyone to take action when they observe an unsafe situation or behavior, regardless of whether the worker is a manager, supervisor, experienced employee, new hire or contractor.

We have a harmonized integrated management system, common procedures and global certification (ISO 45001) through the organization. We periodically assess our systems, programs, and practices for continuous improvement.
