Health, safety and wellbeing

We care about the wellbeing of our colleagues and work to make sure everyone knows how to carry out their tasks safely and efficiently. Our people have a right to a physically and emotionally safe working environment, every day. And we look after the people who work with us or visit us.

We foster a culture of zero harm and encourage everyone to take responsibility of their own safety and the safety of the people around them. One of our values is to grow with compassion, and that compassion starts within our own teams. 

Health and safety are also an integral part of our management system and almost all our sites are covered by the ISO 45001 standard; we are working to expand this standard to cover all our manufacturing units and distribution centers.  

We expect our management teams to carry out regular health and safety performance reviews to ensure sufficient resourcing and to make continuous health and safety improvements an integral part of our culture. 

All employees have the right to stop working at any point if they observe a health and safety risk. We address any safety hazards without delay. We also partner with an external service provider to offer an anonymous and secure channel for any issues, misconduct or unethical behavior that are not sufficiently addressed by line management.  

Fiskars Group Safety Week

We focused especially on this last point, as we were still living under COVID-19 pandemic regulations. Safety Week also boosted safety observation reporting, and the total number of reported safety observations from our manufacturing units and distribution centers was 10,846 in 2021 (7,690), an increase of 41% compared to the previous year. This is an important way for us to promote safety at work and all these observations are recorded and actions are taken to mitigate the hazards.
