Nokia Life Saving Rules

Everyone goes home safely at the end of the day

Nokia Life Saving Rules are our safety guidance to ensure everyone gets home safely, every day. The guidance includes six simple safety rules related to top three risk areas in Nokia: 

  • Road Safety
  • Working at Height
  • Electrical Safety

Everyone working for Nokia, including our subcontractors and suppliers, must follow these rules as an absolute minimum. By following the Life Saving Rules – with no exceptions - you will help us minimize the risk of serious accidents and personal injury.

If you witness any violation of the rules, please stop them immediately and speak up.

Life Saving Rules are here to make Nokia safe for everyone

Life Saving Rules are six simple safety rules related to the top three risk areas in Nokia (Working at Height, Road Safety and Electrical Safety), targeting the behaviours that we know, from experience would save lives.  

  • Everyone is responsible for leading with example following, promoting and enabling compliance with the rules.
  • Every Nokia or supplier employee is personally accountable for following the rules and speaking up if a rule is violated.
  • We have a Zero-Tolerance policy for not following the Life Saving Rules, not enabling the rules to be followed, and knowingly permitting breach of the rules.
  • We enforce  the Life Saving Rules by applying a consequence and recognition framework.
  • It’s all about living up to our essentials and acting together to ensure everyone goes home safely at the end of the day.
