LEVEL 1 IN OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

 


Zero accidents forum is a network of workplaces coordinated by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The aim of the forum is to help the member organisations improve their health and safety and share good practices among the companies. Zero accidents forum grants annually ratings to companies based on their success in developing health and safety issues.

Westenergy has been granted the highest rating already twice. Westenergy’s safety culture has been determinedly developed, for instance, with the help of so-called safety minutes and safety rounds and by investing in personal protective equipment. As a result of consistent work to improve health and safety, Westenergy has been an accident-free workplace for four years.
