in a responsible manner
The health and safety rules and regulations are the same to Nordkalk’s own personnel and all visitors to the Nordkalk premises.
In Finland, there is an on-line safety video guiding in detail what is expected at the site e.g. in safety gear wise, which everybody entering Nordkalk’s production sites shall watch, either online beforehand or at site.
An instructions booklet to chauffeurs is delivered to all transport companies and other contractors during e.g. audits conducted by Nordkalk. In case a person arrives at a Nordkalk site without the necessary safety gear, it will be provided to the person. Nordkalk personnel is obligated to react immediately to any breach of safety regulations and guide anybody on the premises about the safe way of working. All such incidents will be reported and included in the safety statistics.
Chauffer Timo Koivula from E. Seppälä Transports visits Nordkalk’s Pargas unit twice a day to pick up a load of powdered limestone. Timo is wearing all the by Nordkalk required safety gear i.e. helmet, goggles, safety footwear and high vision clothing.
- Safety gear is a modern day phenomena, to wear it is a given, says Timo, who thinks that investing in H&S issues is a very good thing.
