Health and Safety

We all have the right to a healthy and safe working environment and it is Norske Skog’s top priority to provide this to our employees, contractors and visitors. Health and safety is a 24-hour responsibility, 7 days a week. We encourage the same quality attitude and behaviour at work and leisure, and advocate the same with our business partners. Compromising health or safety is never the right thing to do, regardless of time pressure, financial situation or desired performance on other areas.

Our Corporate Standards provide more detailed directions on how health and safety shall be continuously improved.
