Our goal is for everyone to return home at the endof the day at least as safe and sound as when they arrived at work.
Line management is responsible for promoting a strong health and safety culture, while all employees and contractors are responsible for contributing to health and safety in their work activities. Health and safety awareness programmes and training, along with Nynas policies, support these efforts.
The following four policies apply throughout Nynas:
- Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality (HSSE&Q) policy
- Preventive Health Care policy
- Travel & Security policy
- Alcohol and Drugs policy
We strive to continuously provide a safe and healthy work environment for all employees, contractors and visitors and aim for safe and controlled processes within all operations. One long-standing ambition is to maintain a performance that is better than the industry average in health and safety, including both personal safety and process safety.
Health and Safety performance
Over the past few years, Nynas has implemented a number of measures to improve its Total Recordable Injury rate (TRI) such as holding extra safety meetings, updating our minimum safety requirements and by sharing best practices. These efforts have paid off.
Code of Safe Conduct
The Code of Safe Conduct aims to support everyone who works at, and for Nynas, to act in a way that helps to achieve even better results in both personal and process safety. Similar safety efforts have been in the industry for some time, and we were therefore able to assess what works well and what doesn’t when it came time to launch our own Code of Safe Conduct. The work focuses on applying a safety focused Code of Conduct with a set of themes.
This is an important step in creating a safe workplace and ensuring that situations that could result in personal injury, damage to the environment or damage to equipment, are quickly recognised and acted upon. This in turn is based on there being clear descriptions regarding how everyone should act, for example when working at height, during instances of heavy lifting, working in confined spaces, and when it comes to process safety. In specific terms, it primarily concerns communicating about these issues and stimulating further reflections and continuous work throughout the company to improve on all the areas covered by the Code.
Our facilities meet stringent demands on safety. Some of these regulations are global – applying across all our production sites – while others are local.
