Occupational health and safety
Protecting people is Pöyry’s number one priority. We are firmly committed to protecting the health, safety and security of all our employees, other persons working at our premises and those who may otherwise be affected by our activities. Caring for colleagues and their wellbeing is a fundamental principle at Pöyry.
Pöyry creates and maintains safety as an integrated part of working, where everyone is expected to follow the THINK–ALERT–ACT–CARE principle. Each employee has a personal responsibility to commit to and contribute to the creation of a safe workplace, to act safely and to react to shortcomings and risky behaviours in the surroundings. Pöyry began to develop its health and safety organisation in 2016 in order to develop and monitor its operations globally. In addition, wellbeing is an integral part of our work locally and globally.
Health and safety is particularly material for the project teams who are working on the client sites in the industry, energy and infrastructure sectors. Pöyry is required and committed to operating in accordance to the client’s health and safety instructions as applicable in the project management plans. We also expect suppliers and business partners to commit to Pöyry’s health and safety requirements and, ultimately, those of the client. This is followed up in internal auditing.
The risk of accidents and injuries is reduced through continuous mapping, analysis and evaluation at all stages of work. The objective is to minimise potential risks as early as possible. The performance is controlled and reviewed on a regular basis in local entities, businesses and Pöyry’s top management.
A global certification according to OHSAS 18001 started in 2017 and is scheduled to complete in 2019.
Health and Safety Statement
Pöyry is firmly committed to protecting the health, safety and security of all its employees and other persons working at the Company's premises or who may be otherwise affected by our activities.
Pöyry is committed to operate in compliance with the relevant laws and standards and to identify, assess and minimise health and safety risks in a proactive manner.
Each and every Pöyry employee has a personal responsibility to be committed to and involved in the creation of a safe workplace, to act safely and to react to shortcomings and risky behaviours in the surroundings.
Everyone working for Pöyry is expected to:
- THINK – consider safety in everything you do
- ALERT – be alert and keep your eyes and ears open
- ACT – when you detect a potential safety issue, act immediately
- CARE – care about the safety of your colleagues and every person
In client projects Pöyry is required – and is committed to – operating according to the client's health and safety instructions on the presumption that the client's health and safety requirements are at least on the same level with those of Pöyry.
Pöyry's suppliers and partners are required to commit to both Pöyry's own health and safety requirements and ultimately, to those of our clients.
The risk of accidents and injuries shall be reduced through continuous mapping, analysis and evaluation at all stages of our work.
Management is responsible for implementing and compliance with our Health and Safety Policy.
Protecting people is our number one priority.
