Workplace safety is a top priority at UPM and we are continuously driving new improvements to ensure it. We want to provide a stable foundation for hard work and individual development.


Driving continuous safety improvements

At UPM, we want every day to be a safe workday. We want to make sure that neither our employees nor contractors are exposed to any risks when working on UPM premises. Our preventive safety culture also includes proactive safety reporting. If we spot a safety issue, we act right away and encourage our employees to do the same through our global safety reporting tool. We promote learning and sharing: we provide our employees and contractors with training on safe working practices and safety requirements, and we discuss any incidents as well as what we can learn from them.


Ensuring health and well-being

We believe that our employees’ well-being is based on a combination of a safe, supportive working environment together with a healthy lifestyle and work-life balance. That is why we work in close co-operation with our personnel and occupational health services to support the continuous improvement of our employees’ health, quality of life and ability to perform. Our people are at the core of our business, and their health and safety are always our top priority.
