Health, safety, security and environment
Norske Skog is committed to provide a safe working environment for our employees, contractors and visitors, as well as to maintain a sustainable environment and responsible use of natural resources. We are committed to foster innovation and implement continuous improvement activities in order to have no or only minimal adverse impact on the environment.
Health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) are an integral part of Norske Skog’s daily activities and strategy, and they are core elements of Norske Skog’s identity. We encourage the same quality of attitude and behaviour at work and outside of work, and expect the same from our business partners.
As a Norske Skog employee, you shall demonstrate proactive commitment to HSE through your personal conduct. We encourage that you motivate your colleagues to contribute by taking an active part in maintaining a “best in class” HSE culture, as well as to always seek improvement of daily HSE routines. Health and safety is a 24-hour responsibility, seven days a week.
You shall execute your tasks in a secure, safe, healthy and environmentally conscious and efficient manner, in compliance with applicable requirements. You shall show determination and feel responsible for your own health, security and safety by being familiar with the risks relating to your work and the routines and measures for mitigating such risks. Any accident or incident at work that causes or may cause injury or damage must be reported immediately.
You have a responsibility to report unsafe situations and behaviour that you observe to local managers. Compromising health or safety is never the right thing to do, regardless of time pressure, financial situation or desired performance.
