"At Nordkalk, we only burn lime."

Nordkalk wants to provide a healthy and safe working environment for all its employees. In Finland, this means that from 1 January 2017 Nordkalk becomes a smoke-free work place. 

At the smoke-free Nordkalk, smoking is prohibited on all Nordkalk premises e.g. parking lots, yard areas, doorways, cars, loading platforms. The rule applies to all locations in Finland and the entire personnel together with visitors, contractors, partners, interns.

- I myself and majority of the personnel has a positive attitude towards the smoke-free work place. Nobody sees it as a problem. However, I do appreciate that some people may find it harder not to smoke during work hours. The non-smoking rule will have a direct positive effect on the work place as e.g. the cars will not smell of tobacco anymore, says the chief shop steward Yngve Mattson from the Pargas location.
