Occupational safety


"Zero accidents" is our main long-term objective in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) at Raisio Group's factory locations. Each year, we take into account all variable factors in our operating environment and based on this evaluation, we prepare our action plan to improve safety at work. All Raisio Group's units have an OSH organisation that carries out safety inspections and investigates all workplace accidents.

Finland

  • In 2014, Raisio organised four safety card trainings in Finland, with more than 60 employees. We also held several trainings for first aid and initial extinguishing as well as one hot work card event during the year.

  • • In addition to the evacuation drills carried out in the Raisio-based production plant, the standby teams of Southwest Finland Emergency Services continued, as in previous years, to study functions and risk factors of the industrial area. In connection of the annual fire inspections, the information on the Emergency Services' plans was updated. The plans include rescue work arrangements of the new Naantali-based Luolala office.


UK

  • At the beginning of 2014, the number of occupational accidents rose significantly at the factories starting with transferred productions. Work induction of new employees and new production lines with related changes made it difficult to maintain the level of work safety. However, we avoided serious occupational accidents and the number of accidents decreased significantly towards the end of the year.

  • Strong focus was on work safety training. Some 300 persons completed OSH training in the Snacks unit.


Czech Republic

  • Number of workplace accidents decreased from the previous year.

  • Certified work safety system OHSAS in use.

  • Several production projects enhancing work safety were carried out; temperature control was improved, safety equipment of steam distribution was strengthened and safety devices were added on packing machines, to mention a few.
