Health and safety

At Ahlstrom-Munksjö, we believe that zero accidents are possible.

Health and safety is an essential part of our business ethics. By continuously setting targets to improve, developing consistencies and managing complacencies, we will build a strong safety culture that will increase the health and safety accountability globally for all employees, contractors and visitors.

Our Occupational Health and Safety Policy describes the principles that direct the way we shall conduct all our activities to ensure we provide a safe working environment for everyone.

Our targets and commitments are: 

  1. To achieve zero lost-time accidents through our systems of preventative activities, such as near-miss reporting, behavior-based safety interactions, safety inspections, annual auditing, and tailored safety training.
  2. That all production facilities shall be certified with OHSAS18001 Occupational Health and Safety management system; that they comply with this policy, standards, guidelines, safety rules, life-saving rules and also review these annually.
  3. To incorporate health and safety as an essential part of our local activities and operations with the support of a safety expert network organization coordinated by your local Health and Safety Manager.
  4. To ensure that all employees, contractors and visitors understand that they are responsible for their own safety and the safety of all others by their actions in the area they are working in. 


This Group Policy is supported by the corporate auditing and risk management process, which together with local site-specific health, safety and risk assessment policies as well as transparent communication, will constitute that the systems are vital in achieving the highest level of health and safety within our production and office environments.
