Our organization is not only made up of processes and products, but of people and purpose. We seek to continuously improve ourselves. However, improvement can only be achieved when we expand our way of developing and nurturing the people who make our products and business succeed.
health & safety
We want to prevent accidents and illnesses from happening, so we take responsibility for the health and safety of our employees every single day. For this reason, we steadily improve and renew our prevention programs, supported by industry-leading methods and dedicated safety experts.
We provide a safe, healthy, and supportive working environment and continuously invest in safety initiatives beyond statutory minimum requirements.
Zero fatalities and no Lost Time Accidents (LTA) at all sites.
Safety Awareness Talks effective at all sites.
We at delfort operate on the basis of globally uniform guidelines for risk prevention. Our Occupational Health and Safety Policy serves as overarching, internationally valid group regulation. It is based on international standards – such as ISO 45001 - and national laws to emphasize the managers’ obligation to act responsibly. However, health and safety also underscores the employees’ own responsibility. Every worker is involved in a safety network with the responsibility of creating a positive safety culture. Therefore, we engage our workforce in the development, implementation, and execution of appropriate management systems and programs.
delfort’s safety culture is based on three columns: our line-system, our safety awareness talks, and assessment.
Occupational health and safety is a management responsibility throughout the hierarchy of the entire organization. Roles are clearly defined – each manager is responsible for occupational safety in their supervisory and functional area. In all mills, we have dedicated work safety managers representing workers at each site. 100% of employees are represented in formal, joint management-worker health and safety committees and at biannual European Works Council meetings.
SAFETY AWARENESS TALKS
delfort has also started Safety Awareness Talks (SATs) in all our locations. These are 5-10-minute face-to-face conversations between two employees, regardless of hierarchy, mill or department. The SATs are aimed at increasing the awareness of risks by personal face-to-face conversation and exchanging safety actions.
WORK SAFETY ASSESSMENT
We use the work and safety assessments as a medium to document, evaluate and learn from potential risks to be able to prevent accidents. Near misses are collected and analyzed for accountability and improvement. This provides us with the opportunity to learn from best practices, define improvements, and implement purposeful corrective action.
