The system of Safety and Health at Work in NEK ensures safe working environment and rises the awareness of employees for workplace health promotion. Each employee should consider appropriate safety measures. The plant management sets high standards, eliminates safety risks, supervises work, requires consistent protective measures and promotes safety and health at work by setting an example. The safety and health guidelines are in compliance with statutory and implementing acts. We assure that the best safety and health rules are put into practice. The safety and health at work policy is an integral part of NEK’s Commitment and Goals. It is clearly outlined in procedures and presented to the employees. Subjects such as risk assessment, injury prevention and departures from standards are periodically discussed during the management reviews where root causes are determined and corrective as well as preventive measures defined.
At the end of 2011, the NPP also introduced the standard BS OHSAS 18001: 2007 which specifies the requirements for the safety and health management system at work.
