Health & safety

Embeded image

Health and safety is embedded within our Code of Conduct and is therefore included in our Ethical Business Training. In this training we emphasize the importance of identifying and avoiding risks, and reporting incidents. In addition, we run campaigns that focus on the key safety risks for our employees and contractors, and encourage open reporting of incidents and near misses by contractors and employees.

We continued to emphasize our non-negotiable rules called the Nokia Life Saving Rules, which include six simple safety rules related to our top risk areas: driving, working at height, contractor management, and electrical activities. Everyone working for or on behalf of our company, including our subcontractors and suppliers, must follow these rules as an absolute minimum.

World Safety Day

As part of our drive to make Nokia a great, safe and healthy place to work, we also celebrated World Safety Day on 28 April 2017 across the company. Kicked off with a video message from our CEO, we held local events on 50 of our sites. Through our Healthier Together program we also kicked off the first health challenge Race around the world. 45 locations posted pictures and videos of the local events.
