Safety is a key element of our social responsibility. We want to guarantee safe and healthy working conditions for all our employees and subcontractors working at our sites, and also ensure the traffic safety of road users. We are a significant employer in our industry and respect our employees’ rights and the collective and other agreements that bind us.
Project-specific safety planning
Our business is project-oriented, which means that we work in changing and varying circumstances. In addition to our common safety procedures, we consider project-specific safety issues first from the perspective of the entire project and then examine them in more detail for each phase of the project as the project goes on.
The target is zero accidents
We always aim for zero accidents at our sites. Every Destia employee is responsible for performing their duties safely and looking after their co-workers’ safety so that our sites are both safe and healthy places to work.
We address safety issues without delay. We hold regular briefings for our employees and subcontractors on occupational safety and the ways to manage it. We require that our subcontractors commit to the same strict safety standards as we do.
Renewing and developing together
We invest in continuous learning and the development of our employees’ qualifications. We believe that the creation of learning opportunities and the long-term development of our employees’ competence will ensure our competitiveness in the future.
We systematically and regularly monitor the work ability and well-being of our employees We cooperate closely with pension insurance companies and occupational health care providers to prevent challenges and react quickly to any challenges. We also participate in the Työ ei syrji (“Work does not discriminate”) campaign organised by the Confederation of Finnish Industries.
